How can I set some of the misc preferences in ibm5250?
If I read the help file it says that for instance to turn hotspot highlighting on I use the option
It doesn't say where :-(
That sure looks like an old fashioned ~/.Xresources file entry, but creating one with just that in it doesn't seem to work.
Are they still sourced in modern versions of X (I would think they would be!)
I'd like to make it global rather than per user as well.
If I make the change with the GUI it seems to make a 'Miscellaneous' file (type data, not text) in ~/.iSeriesAccess/ibm5250
I suppose I could copy that somewhere that has global effect, but I don't know where that is - /opt/ doesn't directly relate.

Re: Setting Misc Preferences universally2009-12-07T17:37:18Z in response to furicleI don't know if you got my answer in LinuxDesktop4i, but here it is again.
The file is .iSeriesAccess/ibm_5250/Miscellaneous. I could only view the file with a Hex editor. There are 22 values in the file. Byte 16 changes from 00 to 01, when hotspots are highlighted.

Re: Setting Misc Preferences universally2009-12-08T15:35:16Z in response to SystemAdminHi Jay
I did see that, thank you.
I was hoping for a way to set the preference system wide rather than per user, and figured there must be a way to do it with either environment variables or a text config file.
