X-resources are read from either ~/.Xdefaults or ~/.Xresources . It
depends on method that was used to start X Window System (startx or
XDM). I write my X-resources to ~/.Xresources . ~/.Xdefaults and
~/.xresources are symbolic links pointing to it.

If you want to be really sure, you may want to add lines like these to
your ~/.xinitrc (and/or ~/.gnomerc):

xrdb -merge /etc/X11/Xresources/*
xrdb -merge $HOME/.Xresources

In my machine ~/.xsession is just a symbplic link pointing to ~/.xinitrc .
Which one is read during startup, depends on method you used for
starting X. IIRC startx-script uses ~/.xinitrc and XDM uses ~/.xsession .

Gnome reads ~/.gnomerc. I don't know, if KDE has correseponding file for
same purpose.
