Several aspects of the way
fsc2s GUI looks like can be
customized. On the one hand, this can be done by starting
with the appropriate command line flags (see Command Line Options).
In order not to have to list a long line of command line options each
fsc2 is started the required settings can also be made
permanent by adding them to the file `.Xdefaults' in the users
home directory (please note that the name of the file starts with a dot,
the dot keeps it from being listed with the normal
ls -a to make
ls also list files starting with a dot).
All entries in the `.Xdefaults' file start with
fsc2*, followed by the option to set, a colon and the value of
the option. Here's and example:
fsc2.geometry: 800x600+200+200 fsc2*buttonFontSize: 12
After having edited `.Xdefaults' the new settings will not be used immediately but only after either logging out and in again or executing the command
xrdb -load $HOME/.Xdefaults
Now follows a list of all options that can be set via the `.Xdefaults' file:
Sets the size and position of the main window of
fsc2. The size and position have to be specified in the form width

xheight) or the position (i.e.
+y) can be given alone.

There are two versions for the windows, one for low resolution and one for high resolution displays. Without specifying a preferred size the program picks the one it guesses to be the correct one according to the screen size. By setting
