To get /sysutils/xfm to work I had to copy the app-defaults over like
cp -p /usr/pkg/lib/X11/app-defaults/Xfm /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/app-defaults
If everyone has to do this would it be possible to add a
Message to be printed out to
that effect ?
This is about using xpkgwedge, not about this particular package.
See the message at install:
Information for xpkgwedge-1.12:
$NetBSD: MESSAGE,v 1.3 2003/10/19 07:16:33 grant Exp $
* You MUST set the environment variable XAPPLRESDIR in /etc/profile and
/etc/csh.login by hand in order to make pkgs built with xpkgwedge run
setenv XAPPLRESDIR /usr/pkg/lib/X11/app-defaults
If any users set XAPPLRESDIR in their own environment, these settings
will not work -- such users need to set XUSERFILESEARCHPATH (syntax
can be found in XtResolvePathname(3Xt)).
I think it would be nice to have this directory added to the default
search path in the X11 implementation, but I know I don't understand
all the issues involved.
