I created a .Xresources in my home folder, to customize rxvt-unicode.
I already read this topic, but I don't understand what they did in the solution.
I checked the .xinitrc, it is the default file present on my installation, and it check if a .Xresources file is present in my home, and load it.
userresources=$HOME/.Xresources [some bash here…] if [ -f "$userresources" ]; then xrdb -merge "$userresources" fi
If I did the command xrdb -merge manualy, the file is correctly loaded, and urxvt change !
Those lines should load my file, I think.
I tried to add this line at the begining of the .xinitrc:
echo "test" > $HOME/test.txt
And the file is never created.
I think my .xinitrc is never called anywhere.
I use GDM as login manager (I use gnome).
