Xconfig profiles can be customized to set the window mode, color, font, etc. The following article will discuss the default Xconfig profile, how to apply Xconfig profiles, and confirming the current Xconfig profile being utilized.

Automatic Xconfig Profile Selection

Xstart connection will default to the Xconfig profile which has been 'Set as default Xtart profile.' Settings can be changed within Xconfig. Right click a profile to set as the default profile. Profiles with a 'check mark' on the Icon are the default profiles.
  • After installing for the first time, 'Default Profile' is set as default profiles for both XDMCP and Xstart connections.
