In the OpenWindows Version 2 environment, the openwin script automatically created a copy of /usr/openwin/lib/Xinitrc to a file called .xinitrc in your home directory. This is no longer the case in the OpenWindows Version 3.3 environment. This is significant because:
The openwin start-up script uses the default start-up file, /usr/openwin/lib/Xinitrc, unless there is an .xinitrc file in your home directory, which overrides the default.
It is important that you use the default /usr/openwin/lib/Xinitrc file that come with OpenWindows Version 3.3 software, or later versions. (However, if you want to retain any special changes you made to the .xinitrc file in the Version 2 software, you can do so by following the instructions in this section.)
