By using startx, ~/.xinitrc is being used. But if you use
a display manager (usually xdm), this file is ignored and
~/.xsession is used instead.
To avoid the "two files problem" and additionally make sure
your C shell settings survive in X, use the following
Content of ~/.xsession:
Make sure ~/.cshrc exists; if it's ~/.tcshrc, adjust the
file name accordingly. Maybe specify #!/bin/tcsh. But I
think this is not needed, even on newer FreeBSD versions,
as it's tcsh anyway, and it has kept naming compatibility
to the "old" csh.
Content of ~/.xinitrc:
# ... your other startup initializers here ...
The first line of .xinitrc here is optional.
