You know what i mean ;-)
Read manual page of emacs and/or docstring of initial-frame-alist.

This is working unless i don't put in initial-frame-alist anything else.
Otherwise, default-frame-alist is overhiding these settings.

Anyway that is not what is recommended in both docstring and manual of
initial-frame-alist when we use X settings + default-frame-alist.

So docstring and manual should be updated to explain that clearly.

This was the purpose of this post and also help find what happen in

Thanks anyway for your answer.
