Description Alejandro Mota 2002-10-03 20:14:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.5 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020809

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):

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

Here is my .Xdefaults:

nedit*text.background:  black
nedit*text.foreground:  #AAF
nedit*text.selectForeground: black
nedit*text.selectBackground: #AAF
nedit*text.highlightBackground: white
nedit*text.cursorForeground: white

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.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-10-05 21:48:27 EDT
Put these settings in .Xresources instead, and it should work as expected.

Does it?
Comment 3 Alejandro Mota 2002-10-07 15:08:11 EDT
Yes, moving the settings to .Xresources works. Thanks.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2002-10-25 23:46:43 EDT
.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.
