Use an ~.Xresources file; see below for part of mine.


! ~/.Xresources - X resource preferences.
! You should ensure this is read by something like `xrdb $HOME/.Xdefaults'
! during X startup.
! For information about X resources and associated commands, see xrdb(1x),
! editres(1x), appres(1x), listres(1x).

! This file uses xrdb's capability of using cpp as a preprocesor.
! For documentation on cpp, see cpp(1) and the cpp info entry.

! Colours

#define C_LIGHT White
! Very dark deep blue
#define C_DARK #00002F

! I prefer light on dark terminals.
XTerm*Foreground: C_LIGHT
XTerm*Background: black
XTerm*CursorColor: C_LIGHT
Rxvt*foreground: C_LIGHT
Rxvt*background: C_DARK

Subject: Configuring defaults for nxterm

I'm new to Linux and X.  Now that I've got my system running, I working
on tweaking the X configuration.  I'm trying to figure out how to set my
default font in an nxterm window to the "Large" size by default so that
I don't have to manually change it everytime a new  nxterm window starts
up.  I've read the man docs on nxterm and can't seem to find anything on
how to do this.  Any help appreciated.
