Wink GDM Fluxbox .Xdefaults antics

Chaps and Chapesses,

We all know how great Fluxbox is. I have been using it for several months and decided to get everything looking fancy. Recently I have installed GDM, better options tham KDM etc....

After installing GDM X no longer uses any of the settings in my home directory. eg. .Xdefaults (no more transparent aterm., now it looks rubbish)

Its getting the theme ok. I get a background so i gather its pointing to my ~/.fluxbox/init ok.

Any ideas guys?
