 +====== Change xterm to White on Black ======
  
 +You can change colors and fonts in xterm using the .Xdefaults config file in your home directory. ​ First, open the file.
 +
 +  vi ~/​.Xdefaults
 +
 +Next, insert the following lines.
 +
 +  xterm*foreground: ​      #​FFFFFF
 +  xterm*background: ​      #​000000
 +  xterm*faceName: ​        ​Terminus:​pixelsize=14
 +
 +Finally, refresh the settings with the following command.
 +
 +  xrdb ~/​.Xdefaults
 +
 +That's it.  You're now using white on black with the "​Terminus"​ font at 14 points.
 +
 +More settings are available in the [[http://​wiki.archlinux.org/​index.php/​Xdefaults_%28English%29#​xterm_preferences|Arch Linux Wiki]].
