Hi !

It seems that .Xdefaults have been removed from 6.2 (even if it is still
available to root), however, if I have well understood it is replaced with
.Xresources but this file is not put on the user directory when its account
is created. The one present on /usr/X11/xdm does not specify information
for emacs for instance.... So I still use the old .Xdefaults

Best regards

The file .Xdefaults is indeed deprecated, and replaced by .Xresources
