That's true, I've got Terminus to work in the end, it required
a lot of systemwide XML digging and manually whitelisting it
for fontconfig (ugh), though while with XLFD I had the encoding
I wanted easily, Terminus:lang=pl doesn't do anything for me
strangely (as soon as there are national glyphs, output is blanked

The dmenu not spawning problem was due to default dwm config.def.h
wanting to use "-m" which is currently only supported by 4.6, while
I still had 4.5 (without Xft support, localised font and all that)
and expected it to, well work by default.

Sincere thanks for all the replies in this thread as well to all
people involved with dwm.

best regards
