easy fix to convert ctrl alt enter from xterm to mrxvt in evilwm when your .xinitrc file does not get read:

lg@machine ~ $ which xterm
/usr/bin/xterm
lg@machine ~ $ which mrxvt
/usr/bin/mrxvt
lg@machine ~ $ sudo mv /usr/bin/xterm /usr/bin/xterm.BAK
lg@machine ~ $ sudo ln -s /usr/bin/mrxvt /usr/bin/xterm

now by default your term session is mrxvt

i know its a hack fix….but it works….

….and evilwm has become my window manager of choice. e16 is pretty cool but evilwm is just lite, fast and does not eat away at the ram.
