Yes i did clik the ok button. But then the icon become to error icon. The path to the rxvt is

/usr/local/bin/rxvt
And when i put it to /usr/local/bin/rxvt -bg black -fg white
or
/usr/local/bin/-bg black -fg white rxvt
or
-bg black -fg white rxvt
then the icon become to error icon.

oh, I thought rox can handle parameters.

But this works:
Open /root/.Xdefaults in the editor (in rox click on the "show hidden"-icon to see that file).

Add these 2 lines:

Code:
Rxvt*background: NavyBlue
Rxvt*foreground: White

It will work in higher versions of ROX. I think v2.3

I have this problem wayback in Puppy 1.0.4 Smile

Yes Mark and your first way is the better way. Only boo-boo is put the parameters in this section of the icon dialoging:

Arguments to pass (for executables)

Being lazy my way to go white bg black fg to the other is -rv

I have another favorite parameter added for rxvt worthy of note.

Ever notice how the scroll bar in rxvt is on the left side of the window and the browser scroll bar is on the right side? Well, I found this infuriating. So I use the parameter -scrollBar_right

FMI, open rxvt and type rxvt -h or rxvt --help
