Specifying scoterm cursors for the entire system
To make a pointer cursor font change, perform the following steps.
You must be logged into the system as root to
perform this task.
Open the ScoTerm resource file
in the /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults directory for editing.
Make the desired font resource specification(s):
When you are finished, save your changes and exit the resource file.
For an existing font resource specification, replace
the old font designation with the desired font.
For a new font resource specification, add the new resource
setting, using the following format:
If users are running the scoterm client at the time
you make these changes, they must
restart the client to see the new cursor.
Step 1: Editing the system resource file
The default resource file for scoterm is named
ScoTerm and is located in
the /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults directory.
The resources in this file are read whenever the
scoterm client is run.
If you intend to modify the ScoTerm file,
it is recommended that you either make a backup
copy of the file before you enter your resource changes,
or comment out old resource values before entering new
ones. This way, you are assured of regaining the
default values, if needed.
Step 2: Setting the cursor font resource
As with all resources, cursor font resource specifications must
use the correct format:
When you specify the scoterm client, you can enter
either the binary name,
scoterm, or the class name, ScoTerm.
pointerShape is the resource variable you are setting.
It is part of the resource class, Cursor.
cursorname is the actual
name of the cursor you are selecting.
Use the cursor names listed in
``Standard cursor font names''.
Step 3: Activating the new cursor
Once you have made the desired cursor changes to the
scoterm resource file, the new specifications are
immediately available to all users. However, if users
were running a scoterm window while you made
your changes, they need to restart the client before they
see the new cursors.
