Description Rex Dieter 2002-05-17 14:44:15 UTC
In kdebase-3.0.0-12 (and rawhide's kdebase-3.0.1-1) , it appears that the  
kdeinit line in /usr/bin/startkde resets Xresources, ie, my ~/.Xresources are  
not being used/loaded. Only after I put  
if [ -f "$HOME/.Xresources" ]; then 
    xrdb -merge "$HOME/.Xresources" 
after the kdeinit step do my Xresources get loaded/used.  If xrdb is not used 
here, or put before the kdeinit step, the Xresources are once again not 

Comment 1 Carlos Rodrigues 2002-05-20 00:15:30 UTC
The X resources also get reset after changing some colors in the KDE Control 
Center, whether "apply colors to non-KDE applications" is checked or not.

Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2002-05-22 17:26:07 UTC
I can confirm that the patch works as advertised (against rawhide's 
kdebase-3.0.1-1).  Thanks!

Hmmm, while Limbo beta1 did not unload my ~./Xresources and worked as expected
with regard to this, the problem is back with Limbo beta2. Now both Valhalla and
Limbo beta2 do not accept my ~/.Xresources and I must load them manually.

That checkbox mentioned in a comment above does not affect this.
