    .Xresources and .Xdefaults

    The .Xresources and .Xdefaults files are utilized to configure certain programs under X. Does anyone know where the default X configuration for each program resides in?

    The default is simply compiled into the program. The .Xresources file is used precisely to change the compiled-in defaults. That's really its purpose in life.

    The .Xdefaults in in your root and user home (hidden files).

    With XFree86-4.3.0 you can have a nice cursor arrows by adding

    Xcursor.theme: whiteglass


    Xcursor.theme: redglass

    in your .Xdefaults.

    Have a lot of fun :-)
