xpdf & X resource

Aug 7, 2011
Tested on: Ubuntu 11.04

xpdf man page is not very detailed in terms of possible values for X resource file. Following are the places where xpdf settings can be specified:
  • Ubuntu X resource file: ~/.Xresources The exact files being read can be found by looking into /etc/gdm/Xsession. My settings in ~/.Xresources # xpdf settings xpdf.geometry: 1280x1024 xpdf.initialZoom: width Run following for immediate effect: xrdb -nocpp -merge ~/.Xresources
  • xpdfrc can be found at ~/.xpdfrc and at /etc/xpdf/xpdfrc. My ~/.xpdfrc file: include /etc/xpdf/xpdfrc initialZoom width
