There are linux config files, usually starting with .
- .profile: set environment variabiles and so on when you log in. Doesn't appear to be loaded by default, so I deliberately source it
- .xprofile: equivalent of .profile for X
- .XSessionrc: loaded when you log in to X
- .XResources: also loaded when you log in to X
- Use xrdb to force load changes
- Sets a resources string on the main X window
- Works with X forwarding
- .XDefaults: obsolete version of .XResources which programs can query every time they are launched.
- .XModmap: keys
- .xshrc: loaded when you launch zsh
