How to load .Xresources with kdm

Hello guys,

I'm sorry if this post has already been asked before. I need to ask about kdm. I'm using slackware 10.2 with KDE 3.5, default runlevel is 4 (X with KDM). The problem is my .Xresources files is not loaded by the KDM, so i have to run manually 'xrdb ~/.Xresources' to have it loaded after the startup process.

How do you tell KDM to load my .Xresources file when it starts up ??

Again, if this thread was solved here (in the forum), please help me with the link to it. I've search both in google and in this forum but can't find usable methods...

Many thanx
VVN (Very Very Newbie)
