NOTE: This product installs its X application default files in /usr/freeware/lib/X11/app-defaults, which is not in the default X search path. There are several ways to extend your X search path. The XUSERFILESEARCHPATH, XAPPLRESDIR, XFILESEARCHPATH, and XENVIRONMENT environment variables all affect resource file loading. The easiest methods are to either create a symbolic link in /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults, or to add code similar to this to your startup scripts:


The line wrapping above is for clarity; you can remove it and any extra whitespace. If XUSERFILESEARCHPATH is already set, we append the new directories separated by a colon, otherwise we simply set it to the new colon-separated list. Note that the example code assumes the use of sh, ksh or bash.
