Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

aterm -bl -sh 70 -tr -fg white -bg black +sb -color4 white -color12 yellow
'-bl' - no borders
edit: am using pekwm now but just checked one of my old fluxbox screenshots - I can't remember if I was using '-bl' then or not so I could be wrong. Here's what my current aterm code looks like in pekwm (and also looks like that in openbox)
Originally posted by mikshaw Fluxbox 0.1.14 doesn't use the apps file. You will have to either add the "remember" patch, or upgrade to Fluxbox devel.
Personally I recommend upgrading.
Guess I have to upgrade then. It's just as well really. I'm going to upgrade my system also, from Slack 8.1 to 9.1
8.1 came with Kernel 2.4.18, and my onboard VIA82c686 isn't supported until Kernelversion 2.4.20. Sound is a must when I'm at work. I might get an old SoundBlaster card, and use that instead, and only upgrade fluxbox.
I just upgraded to devel version 0.9.10, and borderless is great.
However I have one "problem" (I also had it before, just forgot to mention it).
I use the /home/geir/.fluxbox/keys file and the entry:
Mod1 a :ExecCommand aterm -tr -trsb -fg green -sh 85
The aterm shows up, but the prompt says something like: bashxxxxxx
When I type bash --login it shows geir@geir$, like it should.
Is there a way of bypassing this problem?
On another note: I upgraded to XFree86 4.4.0, because I want to run WINE for one program we use here at work. The upgrade was painless, and everything appears to be working OK.
Your bash prompt is apparently being set differently from bash_profile or profile (for login shells) and from bashrc (for non-login shells).
The quickest fix is to use the "-ls" aterm option to open a login shell which grabs the PS1 from profile or bash_profile.
Another option is to edit the PS1 variable in ~/.bashrc to your taste.
The -ls option in aterm did something with the transparency, and bg color. I don't use the -bg option, but the
background was set to grey... Go figure.
Another thing is: I don't have the ~/.bashrc file.. Is that a problem, or just the way Slack 8.1 works?
I do however have ~/.bash_history
