Re: How are .Xdefaults files handled under Debian?


While I might indeed have created problems for myself, I NEVER have
capitalized an xterm entry.  All of the examples for Xdefaults and
Xresources that I have seen through the years have never had "xTerm",
"Xterm", or "XTerm".  While I am quite sure that the resource and resource
class keywords are case sensitive, I am not so sure about the program

Also, the resources such as srollBar seem to accept 'yes', 'true', 'on',
and 'no', 'false', 'off' as synonymous sets.
