rxvt does not honor .Xdefaults
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:04 EDT
Description of Problem: rxvt does not honor .Xdefaults
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.7.8-3
How Reproducible: every time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Execute `strace -o foo.txt rxvt` and then quit rxvt.
2. Read foo.txt in a text editor.
3. You should see something similar to:
open("/home/username/.Xdefaults", O_RDONLY) = 4
Actual Results: You do not see the rxvt process open the user's .Xdefaults file.
Expected Results: rxvt should read and honor .Xdefaults
Put them to .Xresources, then they will be loaded by xrdb on X11 startup.
Native .Xdefaults reading is deprecated.
