My googling hasn't worked very well for this. Despite having used
linux for approx 5 years, I've never set up a .Xresources file. My
current problem is with a commandline utility called "display", which is
part of the Image-Magick utilities. The command "display original.tif"
complains about not being able to load a default font that doesn't exist
on my machine (DOHHH). There is a "-font" option, but I don't really
want to type...
display -font -misc-fixed-medium-o-normal--0-0-75-75-c-0-iso8859-1 original.tif
...each time I start the program. Yes, I can use gqview, but I'd like
to learn how to properly set up .Xresources. I've got the following
line (the only line) in ~/.Xresources
but it doesn't help. Any pointers to tutorials? And how do I get this
particular one to work?
