27.10 X Resources
Historically, XEmacs has used the X resource application class `Emacs'
for its resources. Unfortunately, GNU Emacs uses the same application
class, and resources are not compatible between the two Emacsen. This
sharing of the application class often leads to trouble if you want to
run both variants.
Starting with XEmacs 21, XEmacs uses the class `XEmacs' if it finds
any XEmacs resources in the resource database when the X connection is
initialized. Otherwise, it will use the class `Emacs' for backwards
compatibility. The variable `x-emacs-application-class' may be
consulted to determine the application class being used.
The examples in this section assume the application class is `Emacs'.
The Emacs resources are generally set per-frame. Each Emacs frame
can have its own name or the same name as another, depending on the
name passed to the `make-frame' function.
You can specify resources for all frames with the syntax:
You can specify resources for a particular frame with the syntax:
- Geometry Resources
