I just tried the trick of .Xdefaults and symbolic link to .xinitrc...Fedora ignored it. I suppose it isn't too important, but I find myself missing the days of the old init.

If you're running X via a display manager, the file you wantis .Xdefaults, not .xinitrc. .xinitrc is run by the startx command.

I typically make one the symlink of the other so X works the same wayregardless.
