.Xdefaults, if you please.

Looking for :
1. A qualified person to start an .Xdefaults wiki article.
2. Sample .Xdefaults, well commented, if possible. Post 'em right in this thread.
3. Diversity- xterm/aterm tweaks are appreciated, but dpi, font antialiasing etc, would be even more so.

Q: Why?
A: Arch is minimalist, and as many of us prefer the bare WM's to the bloated DE's, an .Xdefaults wiki page will be a real asset for the community.

Any takers?
Thanks!

Re: .Xdefaults, if you please.

I'll definitely contribute, but I can't start anything until this weekend--I'm halfway through cramming a 5-month math course into a single month and I'm bleeding quadratics from my ears!

I can't offer much in the way of xterm/aterm tweaks, so if someone wants to get *that* started.....

Re: .Xdefaults, if you please.

seeing many users have xterm entries in their .Xdefaults id like to point the following, which is part of mine

xterm*charClass:        33:48,35-38:48,39:43,42-47:48,58-59:48,61:48,63-64:48,126:48

it might seem weird but with this you can select urls with the mouse really quick. as xterm lacks urxvt's kinky perl scripts this comes very handy

PS. i have no idea what those numbers actually are. i see freakcodes are a bit different

Re: .Xdefaults, if you please.

Among more usual like urxvt and xterm there are also settings for: xcalc, xlockmore, xfontsel, xman, xdiary, xmessage, xclipboard, xft and other...

Re: .Xdefaults, if you please.

what about making a color scheme section, which contains entrys with color scheme and font style configs only
+ a screenshot of an working terminal

this screenshots would make color scheme selection a lot easier because you don't have to edit your .Xdefault file if you want to see how the color scheme looks like.

Unicode in X's own format, I guess. They represent the stop characters used for matching urls.

Re: .Xdefaults, if you please.

Holy thread necromancy... but I didn't really know where to put this and why start a new thread.  I wasn't happy with my xcalc division button.  For some reason--and I don't know when it happened--the division sign became something more of a comma than a division sign or a forward slash as it's always been before whenever.  Looked around and found a bug report about wrong symbols in xcalc in Debian and adjusted it to my own prefs.  It's the line for "xcalc.ti.button20.label: /".  Anyways, here's my .Xdefaults with the xcalc section.

Edit: p.s. I miss that codes, smilies bar; don't always remember the codes--memory's not what it used to be.  Hope it comes back soon. smile

Edit:  Added xcalc section to .Xdefaults wiki--one less note to keep in my files.

it will be even more user friendly if we can attach a sceenshot for each .Xdefault config.
