These are X resources we are talking about and NetView does not read the files
directly but relies on X to do that.
NetView just gets the current X resource value from the operating system.

If your changes don't seem to be picked up, then you might want to try doing
something like
"xrdb -merge Nvevents"  or merge them into the user's .Xdefaults file  and try
"xrdb -merge .Xdefaults"
and then re-start the GUI.   I think that
xrdb -query
ought to show you the current settings.

Subject:  [NV-L] nvevents: a different startup per user.

Using NV5.1.2 on DEC UNIX

Sometime ago it was suggested here that you can startup nvevents with
different rulesets per user.
The only thing you have to do is modify the ruleset file in Nvevents and
copy this file to the home directory of the user.

You can guess what the problem is: nvevents is still taking the original
Nvevents in /usr/OV/app-defaults as startup.
NetView is started via a script in the $HOME of the user, and the nv6000.log
is updated in this directory.

Is there someone outhere who can point me to the right direction to solve
this problem?

Thanks in advance.
