tweaking aterm

Posted 03-24-2006 at 06:56 PM by divukman

Aloha,

So, you want something different and you want it fast.
Ok, no problem :)

1.) Change your default colors in bash or whatever shell you use:
(thanks to mailing lists for this tip :) )

dircolors -p > ls_colors.file
Edit the file and customize the colors.

Now edit your .bashrc:
Instead of this:

export LS_OPTIONS='--color=auto'
eval `dircolors`
alias ls='ls $LS_OPTIONS'

use this:

export LS_OPTIONS='--color=auto'
eval `dircolors ls_colors.file`
alias ls='ls $LS_OPTIONS'

2.) Change your aterm a bit: well read the fine manual for that, it's actually pretty good, "man aterm" should get you going. I soon came up with something like this:

aterm -tr +sb +trsb -sh 55 -fg orange -bg white -cr red -tinting Blue3 -shading 65 -colorBD green +vb -font -*-fixed-medium-r-*-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-* -geometry 90x24

3.) Or you could shut down your pc and go meditate until you reach enlightenment ;)

Good luck in either case!
