Hi All,

I was wondering if someone would be willing to post or make suggestions for my X11 configuration file. Does anyone know how to do transperancies or background pictures? Here's what my configuration file looks like now (its pretty basic and hasn't been changed much from the x11 installation):

###############################
#!/bin/sh
# $Id: xinitrc,v 1.3 2004/06/11 04:37:23 jharper Exp $

userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
sysresources=/etc/X11/xinit/.Xresources
sysmodmap=/etc/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap

# merge in defaults and keymaps

if [ -f "$sysresources" ]; then
xrdb -merge "$sysresources"
fi

if [ -f "$sysmodmap" ]; then
xmodmap "$sysmodmap"
fi

if [ -f "$userresources" ]; then
xrdb -merge "$userresources"
fi

if [ -f "$usermodmap" ]; then
xmodmap "$usermodmap"
fi

# start some nice programs

xsetroot -gray &
xclock -g 150x150-0+0 -bw 0 &
xterm -g 90X65+150+0 &
xterm -g 90x65+690+0 &
#xterm &

# start the window manager

exec quartz-wm
###############################

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers,
ScKaSx

What exactly are you looking for? Transparencies are usually done by individual applications, example:eterm backgrounds.
If you really want to get into customizing X11, I recommend using a different window manager, such as WindowMaker or Enlightenment and running full screen.
