Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2017-03-13 08:05:42 CET
Currently, we are not reading in any X resources files. On CentOS6, the default vncserver script has this line:

[ -r $HOME/.Xresources ] && xrdb $HOME/.Xresources

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common refers to:


Also see https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/x_resources

File names are not standardized, so it is probably not possible to find a perfect solution, but perhaps something that works in most cases. 

IMHO, only supporting ~/.Xresources, just like vncserver does, seems like a good compromise.
