    x11 configuration file help
    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.
