Christian - In short, no. I have two options, either use .Xdefaults or
use the X resources mechanism. The .Xdefaults file is a depreciated
feature of X and has been replaced by X resources. Virtually all
other X programs use X resources. Therefore, rxvt should also use X
I suggest that either you run "xrdb -merge .Xdefaults" or place your
configuration in .Xresources instead.
