The xinit manpage says: xinit [ [ client ] options ] [ -- [ server ] [ display ] options ] However, it seems to be impossile to start a client without xterm. I do not have nor want xterm on my machines, but it is not possible to start e.g. urxvt instead: xinit urxvt -- :1 If I do this, urxvt is passed to xterm, which is not installed. No, I will not install it. Why are we depending on xterm? Why not make it invoke x-terminal-emulator? Am I misunderstanding the manpage? "client" to me seems to mean "X client". However, all that xinit ever seems to care about is options to xterm. Is this just me? -- Please do not CC me when replying to lists; I read them! .''`. martin f. krafft <firstname.lastname@example.org> : :' : proud Debian developer, admin, and user `. `'` `- Debian - when you have better things to do than fixing a system Invalid/expired PGP subkeys?
