xrdb -merge .Xresources, how can i get rid of that ?


After logging in tty and startx , i do the following to have larger font for xterm/rxvt.
Code:
xrdb -merge .Xresources
Is there any way to set it permanently?

I was and am still confused about this. Some apps or distributions or scripts expect .Xresources while others expect .Xdefaults. I don't know the difference and didn't bother to learn more about the topic, so I simply have an .Xresources file and .Xdefaults symlinked to it. Try that and see if it works.

Had to add "xrdb -merge .Xresources" in .xinitrc and it's done.
