    aterm for me, mainly because it is the default in Vector The transparency is really nice. I'm not sure what I use in Morphix, it could very well be aterm as well.

    superdan, are these aterms you call with .xinitrc or equivalent, or aterms you load manually from the flux menu? If in your .xinitrc, the solution may be as simple as loading your background from the .xinitrc before anything else instead of your theme, and possibly calling aterm from a script which sleeps for a second or three.

    Re:

    AterMs loaded manually after flux. Also, I have my .fluxbox/init file edited to auto load my background according to what style I am on. So that my be the problem too. The terminal window picks up a default color background instead of the picture I have set, and so I said forget it. LOL..

    I reported earlier in this thread that I'm running aterm, but I've recently made the switch to rxvt-unicode and it's been really cool thus far:

    http://software.schmorp.de/

    rxvt-unicode is a clone of the well known terminal emulator rxvt.
    It's main features (many of them unique) over rxvt are:

    * Stores text in Unicode (either UCS-2 or UCS-4).
    * Uses locale-correct input, output and width: as long as your system supports the locale, rxvt-unicode will display correctly.
    * Daemon mode: one daemon can open multiple windows on multiple displays, which improves memory usage and startup time considerably.
    * Crash-free. At least I try, but rxvt-unicode certainly crashes much less often than rxvt and it's many clones, and reproducible bugs get fixed immediately.
    * Completely flicker-free.
    * Full combining character support (unlike xterm .
    * Multiple fonts supported at the same time: No need to choose between nice japanese and ugly latin, or no japanese and nice latin characters .
    * Supports Xft and core fonts in any combination.
    * Can easily be embedded into other applications.
    * All documentation accessible through manpages.
    * Locale-independent XIM support.
    * Many small improvements, such as improved and correct terminfo, improved secondary screen modes, italic and bold font support, tinting and shading.

    And it's main missing features (which users request but are not (yet?) implemented) are:

    * Complex script support, such as arabic or tibetian - more info is needed. (use mlterm)
    * Left-To-Right rendering - more info is needed. (use mlterm)
    * Tabs (although a supplied perl script implements a tabbed shell). (use mrxvt)
    * IIIMF (Intranet/Internet Input Method Framework) support. (use scim)

    There is an IRC channel for discussion on irc.freenode.net #rxvt-unicode.

    I use konsole when in KDE, but since I mostly use Flux now, I use Eterm.

    My sole problem with Eterm is the inability to right-click to copy to clipboard, which causes some problems. I know you can just select to copy and middle-click to paste, but in some programs that don't detect middle-clicks (for example, an MMO that I play), it won't paste like that. I have to copy and paste into a text editor, then Ctrl-C from there and Ctrl-V into my game...

    aterm and xterm don't do it either though.
