Description of problem:
I upgraded from RH 7.3 to RH 8.0. I had customized Nedit's text foreground and
background colors, among other things, using .Xdefaults, as indicated in Nedit's
documentation. When upgrading to RH 8.0, however, these settings are ignored.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Nedit
Actual Results: Text foreground and background colors are Nedit's defaults.
Expected Results: Colors should be as specified in .Xdefaults.
Here is my .Xdefaults:
My machine is an IBM thinkpad A30p with an ATI Mobility Radeon graphics card.
This is not an nedit bug, but an xinitrc one. Changing component.
Put these settings in .Xresources instead, and it should work as expected.
Yes, moving the settings to .Xresources works. Thanks.
.Xdefaults was deprecated 2 years ago by X.org/XFree86.org, and remained
in Red Hat Linux as a legacy compatibility feature during the 7.x
releases. It is no longer a supported legacy compatability feature
in Red Hat Linux 8.0.
