Chapter 19. X Window System Applications > Configuring the X Window System

Configuring the X Window System

Most configuration of the X Window System is handled by a server resource database. When a client makes a request of the server, the server checks the server resource database to determine user preferences for that client. The server resource database is loaded on a per-user basis via the command xrdb, which needs to be executed automatically after starting X11. xrdb loads configuration information from a dotfile, usually named .X11defaults. .X11defaults usually contains lines similar to the following:

1    xbiff*onceOnly:                on
2    xbiff*wm_option.autoRaise:     off
3    xbiff*mailBox                  /usr/spool/mail/mymail
