Thank you for your reply,
I could not find any reference to a .xsession file in my set-up.  I found a 
reference to an .Xresources file, which I will create (the /home/../.Xresources 
file).  Please tell
me, does 'source' mean to copy the entire file into the newly created 
.Xresources file, or is there a way to get the xsession to 'refer' or 'read' 
the existing profile?

Sorry for my persistent questions, What is meant by the "'-ls' (login)"?
