Example 2: Changing scoterm cursor appearance
Let's assume you are an administrator for a system whose
X server and clients are accessed by several users. Your
company just completed a deal with a major boat manufacturer
and, to celebrate, the president of your firm has requested that
the pointer cursor in the scoterm
window be changed to a boat-shape.
The following steps result in a system-wide boat shaped pointer cursor for the
Log into the system as root.
Change directories to /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults
and locate the file named ScoTerm.
This is the default resource file
that you need to edit to make your pointer cursor resource change.
Open the ScoTerm file for editing and
search for the following line:
This is the resource that controls the font that is used
to display the pointer cursor in the scoterm window.
If this resource does not exist, skip to Step 5.
If this resource exists,
comment out the line containing the font value for this
resource so that it looks like this:
By commenting out the default resource setting, instead of
simply deleting the line, you leave yourself a safeguard.
You can always return to this default if you make a mistake when
setting a new font value.
Now open a line immediately below the resource you just
commented out (or if a resource was not previously set, open
a line anywhere in the file) and enter your new resource designation:
Save and exit the ScoTerm file.
As a final test, invoke scoterm. (If you are currently
running a Graphical Environment session,
exit scoterm, then invoke it again.)
The pointer cursor that displays in the scoterm window
should now look like a boat.
