macos - Changing xterm color definitions breaks X11 - Super User
So I guess the answer is to put that stuff in ~/.Xdefaults, since I couldn't get an obvious answer as to whether ~/.Xresources was read on startup, or whether I needed to create a ~/.xinitrc to read it in with 'xrdb'.
On my Mac OS X 10.5.8, I changed the color background of the Xterm (X11) by adding the following lines to the file .Xdefaults:

X resources - ArchWiki |
Load a resource file (such as the conventional .Xresources), replacing any current settings:
<code class="language-bash">
$ xrdb ~/.Xresources

Load a resource file, and merge with the current settings:
<code class="language-bash">
$ xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources

Most Display managers load the ~/.Xresources file on login.
The older ~/.Xdefaults file is read when an X11 program starts, but only if xrdb has not been used in the current session. [1]

URxvt Customization and Optimization with Xresources
After many years of using all sorts of terminal emulators, from xterm to the Gnome terminal, to KDE Konsole to xfce4-terminal, lxterminal, vte, yakuake, rote, roxterm, putty, sakura, terminator, and finally I settled in for the long-haul with rxvt (rxvt-unicode) aka urxvt.
