Xterm and the .xdefaults file were not pre-loaded on my system in the first place and even after running Xterm once, I had to create .xdefaults myself. I believe I've put it in the right place:
For what reason is Xterm ignoring my .xdefaults file? It looks like this now:
xterm*dynamicColors:: true xterm*background:: black xterm*foreground:: white xterm*utf8:: 2 xterm*eightBitInput:: true xterm*saveLines:: 32767 xterm*scrollTtyKeypress:: true xterm*scrollTtyOutput:: false xterm*scrollBar:: false xterm*loginShell:: true xterm*faceName:: Monospace:pixelsize=11 xterm*jumpScroll:: true xterm*multiScroll:: true xterm*toolBar:: false xterm*geometry:: 100x30
Is this correct?
