Gudday.

Here is how I gave my XASTIR a RADAR style display

Login as root

1) Modify draw_symbols.c

add this (to make all text green)

 // finally draw the text
    fgcolor = 0x52;
    (void)XSetForeground(XtDisplay(w),gc,colors[fgcolor]);
    (void)XDrawString(XtDisplay(w),where,gc,x,y,text,length);

2) Modify symbols.dat

delete all symbols except the first one and set it to a green diamond like
this
