xterm seems to not read the colors I set in my ~/.Xresources file when I connect to a Linux PC remotely.
Basically, if I'm sitting in front of my PC and I run an
xterm from Xsession, the colors will obey whatever is in my ~/.Xresources file - no problem there.
Here is my ~/.Xresources file:
XTerm*background: black Xterm*XtDefaultBackground: black Xterm*XtDefaultForeground: white XTerm*foreground: white
But if I log on to that same computer remotely and run an
xterm (which will appear locally though), the colors are again the default (black fonts on white background).
It seems irrational that
xterm does not read .Xresources file in this case!
What am I missing?
