If so, I have a question for you.

I'm running Ubuntu Dapper. It's got the default for an x-window set as black background white foreground. I want to invert that to white Background, black foreground. I can't figure out the right switches to do that. Anybody have a clue on this?

I put this in .Xresources. It's possible that your system uses .Xdefaults instead. I have one file sym-linked to the other...

Thanks scrawler,

I ended up doing the uninstall -- reinstall routine and now it's working like I want.
