On 10/10/02 Gilles J. Seguin did speaketh:
> .Xdefaults .Xresources files are suppose to be used

Nonsense. All of one's X customization is supposed to happen there. If it
were only for global use, it would affect every user on the box, and what's
the point in that? I want to customize _my_ session.

Nonsense. The X resource manager parses it once, and then every X app
talks to the resource database to get only information that is specific to
itself. Even if you were right, xterm still opens far faster than
gnome-terminal and konsole. xmix opens instantly. etc etc

What does Netscrape have to do with this?

[msoulier at biryani msoulier]$ grep Xdefaults ~/.xsession
if [ -e $HOME/.Xdefaults ]; then
xrdb -merge $HOME/.Xdefaults
And the issue is?
