Fwd: Xsession: warning XRDB command not found: X resources not merged.

Thanks for all of your help.
first,my english is poor.
This program i have resolved.The error said xrdb command not found.Then i reinstall the "xbase-clients",but it doesn't work.Then i installed the pakeages "x11-server-utilis".it has the "xrdb".so the problem had fixed.

but i don't know why this problem happened,because a few days ago xfce run well.
i think it may because i uninstall something when i install the eva.

After boot-up, but before log-in, comes a warning window with the following message:

Xsession: warning XRDB command not found: X resources not merged.

At first, I was getting a small square window with a large lightbulb. It said:


and needed to be "OK'd". Then and now everything seems to start normally, but I'm worried. What is the meaning of this warning?

my x-windows is xfce4

find /etc/gdm/ -type f | xargs grep -i xrdb

and see what shows up. Do you have xrdb installed?

man xrdb:

      Xrdb is used to get or set the contents of the
      RESOURCE_MANAGER property on the root window of screen 0, or
      the SCREEN_RESOURCES property on the root window of any or all
      screens, or everything combined.  You would  normally  run
      this program from your X startup file.

      Most X clients use the RESOURCE_MANAGER and SCREEN_RESOURCES
      properties to get user preferences about color, fonts,
      and so on for applications.

Slightly wrong directory, I guess:

$ grep -r xrdb /etc/X11/Xsession*
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/30x11-common_xresources:# If xrdb (from xbase-clients) is installed, merge system-wide X resources.
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/30x11-common_xresources:if /usr/bin/which xrdb >/dev/null 2>&1; then
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/30x11-common_xresources:        xrdb -merge $RESOURCEFILE
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/30x11-common_xresources:      xrdb -merge $USRRESOURCES
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/30x11-common_xresources:  message "warning: xrdb command not found; X resources not merged."

$ egrep -r 'RESOURCEFILE|USRRESOURCES' /etc/X11/Xsession*
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/30x11-common_xresources:    RESOURCEFILES=$(run-parts --list $SYSRESOURCES)

/etc/X11/Xsession.d/30x11-common_xresources:    if [ -f "$USRRESOURCES" ]; then
/etc/X11/Xsession.d/30x11-common_xresources:      xrdb -merge $USRRESOURCES
