Hi. I'm trying to figure out XAPPLRESDIR. I've read the X man pages
for both Digital and SGI X distributions, but still can't get it to
My current impression is that I should be able to do something like
and include my own versions of files in /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults.
When I do this, I my defaults appear to be ignored. I've tried case
variants of the filenames.
1) Do I need to xrdb in order to get the defaults in XAPPLRESDIR
loaded? If not, when are they loaded?
2) Are filenames in XAPPLERESDIR case sensitive?
3) What's the difference between XAPPLRESDIR and
4) What's the search order for finding a particular default?
My guess is XAPPLRESDIR, XUSERFILESEARCHPATH, XENVIRONMENT,
Thanks in advance for all help.
