Hi all,

I'm using Mageia 1 with xterm-269-3.mga1 installed . The default
config of xterm is ugly, especially the fonts.
I configure the fonts in ~/.Xdefaults. But it stil has weird problem.

$ cat ~/.Xdefaults
! English font
 xterm*faceName: DejaVu Sans Mono:antialias=True:pixelsize=14
$ xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults

1) If I open another xterm from the xterm in which I execute the xrdb
commond , the configuration takes effect.
2)If I open the xterm from menu or other terminals(in the same
machine), the configuration doesn't takes effect (the same as the
default http://picpaste.com/2-8YSWbreD.png).
3) If I logout and re-login or just reboot , the configuration doesn't
takes effect either

I also create symbol link ~/.Xresources to ~/.Xdefaults.It's useless
either.I'm using GDM + E17 here.Any clue?

Yes, I use Debian GNU/L
