Hi - please supply some further information for this bug report:
o What do you mean by 'change schema and save' ?
  what were the exact steps you took ?
In order to change the xterm foreground / background, you need to set the
'xterm*foreground' and 'xterm*background' X resources,
eg. in ~/.Xresources ( to set the per-user preferences ) or in
/usr/share/X11/app-defaults/XTerm (to set the system-wide preferences).
I know KDE's control center sets the xterm*{back,fore}ground resources
when changing the "'Appearance & Themes' -> Colors" are changed and the
"Apply colors to non-KDE applications" checkbox is checked. 
Let me know how you attempted to change the colors - thanks.
Comment 2 Jason Vas Dias 2006-03-03 13:06:17 EST
I definitely cannot find any problems with customizing the default xterm
foreground and background colors with the 'xterm*background' and 
'xterm*foreground' X resources, or with the xterm '-fg' or '-bg' arguments.
As the further information requested for this bug report was not forthcoming,
and I cannot reproduce the problem, closing as 'NOTABUG'. 
If this bug is still a problem for you, please supply the further information
requested and re-open it.
