To make it a system-wide default which can be overridden by each user, put a copy of the .xinitrc mentioned above in; /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/xinit/ but leave off the leading dot '.' Anyway, if you put it in the above directory, it is the default if the user doesn't make their own. If they make their own and put it in their home directory, their own overrides the default. Something like that anyway. I think you can also put the default in etc/X11/ but I am not sure about that. ////jerry > > Daniela > > > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" > _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
