You may be able to put settings like the following in ~/.Xresources
(Note: bangs (!) are considered comment chars in ~/.Xresources

You didn't mention what operating system you use but there was a time
when settings like these went in ~/.Xdefaults but in recent fedora
(redhat) desktops, this file name was changed to ~/.Xresources

These all take effect when I startx using recent Fedora core 2 and kde
desktop.  But I think it works for gnome too.
