You will have to obtain and customize a private copy of XFTP's application defaults file, XFTP. (An application defaults file is a text file associated with an X-based application that can be modified by the user to change the way the application looks and/or behaves.) There are two steps to perform:
1. Obtain the application defaults file, Xftp.
The XFtp file comes with the Xftp distribution. If your system administrator installed Xftp, he/she probably placed XFtp in /usr/lib/X11/app-defaults (or perhaps in /usr/local/bin). If you have not already done so, my recommendation is for you to create a directory in your home directory named "app-defaults". Copy XFtp to $HOME/app-defaults. Add the path $HOME/app defaults to your XUSERFILESEARCHPATH environment variable. If you are not using this environment variable, add the line
setenv XUSERFILESEARCHPATH "$HOME/app-defaults"
to your .cshrc file (and then execute "source .cshrc").
2. Edit the application defaults file, XFTP.
3: Use your favorite text editor to modify XFTP.
Look for lines containing the patterns "foreground", background", "font", and "Font". Here are some examples.
to change much of the foreground color to red.
to change the font of certain components such as menus and push buttons.
Caveat. Changing a line of the application defaults file might not result in the desired effect (for example, replacing a font with a larger font might mess up the geometry of some of XFTP's windows). You will probably have to experiment.
