[SOLVED] Really stupid Xresources question

Hi all,

I'm running Arch on a Raspberry Pi and after installing i3 I'm having a hard time configuring the colors of the terminal windows.

Here's my .Xresources:

! terminal colors ------------------------------------------------------------

! tangoesque scheme
*background: #111111
*foreground: #babdb6
! Black (not tango) + DarkGrey
*color0:  #000000
*color8:  #555753
! DarkRed + Red
*color1:  #ff6565
*color9:  #ff8d8d
! DarkGreen + Green
*color2:  #93d44f
*color10: #c8e7a8
! DarkYellow + Yellow
*color3:  #eab93d
*color11: #ffc123
! DarkBlue + Blue
*color4:  #204a87
*color12: #3465a4
! DarkMagenta + Magenta
*color5:  #ce5c00
*color13: #f57900
!DarkCyan + Cyan (both not tango)
*color6:  #89b6e2
*color14: #46a4ff
! LightGrey + White
*color7:  #cccccc
*color15: #ffffff

But my i3 terminals still have all white backgrounds. Here's a screenshot:

When I'm not in i3, I'm using oh-my-zsh. Not sure if that makes a difference.

Am I editing the wrong config file? If so, what file should I be editing/ I am brand new to Linux! Sorry for the stupid question!

Thank you for any help you can give!

Re: [SOLVED] Really stupid Xresources question

Do you use the .xinitrc to start i3? If so, you might have to add:

[[ -f ~/.Xresources ]] && xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources

(See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/X_ … o_xinitrc)

That worked! Thank you. I must have missed that in the documentation.
