    How to change the look of aterm


    I am trying to change the way aterm looks with fluxbox on a debian system. I have seen tutorials on what to add to cetain "files" to get what I want. My question is, what file do I put this info into? I have seen reference to .xinit, Xdefaults, .Xresources. I have none of these files. Do I just choose one to create and add the info. Or am I missing something?

    .xinitrc probably they probably ment, in there is for automatic startup when you type "startx".

    I would put it in a menu, look at the man page for more information. Here is an example of aterm command:
    Code:
    aterm -bg black -fg green -tr +sb -sh 30

    If I don't use the startx command but rather go into flux via gdm will this still apply?

    Yes, just make your own .Xdefaults file (don't forget to put the dot at the beginning) and add whatever lines of code you want. Here's an aterm howto that might help:
