I am under the impression that if there is a user .xinitrc file,
then it means the system .xinitrc will *not* be run, which is
often a bad thing since that latter init file does useful X11
stuff. Hence I make sure my ~/.xinitrc file ends with this line:
Am I wrong on this?
If ~/.xinitrc exists, then it is used as the initial rc file rather
than /etc/x11/xinit/xinitrc. Convention is to copy
/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc to your home directory. You edit the copied file
to which you have permissions, leaving the original untouched.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
