command supports DECstation 5000 Model 200 PX color workstation.
The command that executes the X server is specified together with its command line options in the file and, therefore, is automatically run
when your system is started in multiuser mode.
The following options are device independent. These options are available on all workstation hardware platforms running X11 Release 3
-a num Sets the mouse acceleration value to the specified number of pixels. The default is 4.
-bs Disables Backing Store. Backing Store is disabled if the -bs flag is specified on the command line.
-c Turns off key clicking.
c num Sets the key click volume to the specified number (0-100). The default is 20.
-co string Selects a color database. The default is
-f num Sets the bell volume to the specified number (0-100). The default is 50.
-fc string Sets the default cursor font. The default is
-fn string Sets the default text font. The default is
-fp string Sets the default font directory path. The default font directories are:
+fp path[,path...] Prepends the specified font path(s) to the default path.
fp+ path[,path...] Appends the specified font path(s) to the default path.
-help Displays the server usage message.
-I Directs the server to ignore all remaining command line arguments.
-logo Enables the X logo screen saver.
nologo Disables the X logo screen saver.
-p seconds Determines how long to wait before changing the background pattern of the screen saver. The default is 10 seconds.

-t num Sets the mouse threshold in pixels. The mouse will accelerate only if the threshold is exceeded. The default thresh-
old is 4.
-to seconds Specifies the number of seconds for the server to wait before declaring a session connection timed out.
ttyxx Specifies the terminal on which the server should start.
v Specifies that a blank screen is used for the screen saver. This is the default screen saver.
-v Specifies that a pattern (noblank) screen is used for the screen saver.
-wm Enables the use of Backing Store with WhenMapped calls.
-x string Loads the file string containing an X extension.
:num On a multihead system, specifies the head on which the server is run (0 or 1). The default is 0.
The following are device-dependent, vendor-specific options.
-bp color Sets the color of black pixels. The color argument may be a named color from the database or a number sign (#) fol-

the workstation to behave as if the X server is hung.
