Aterm - a way to store its settings (getting rid of a mile long argument list)


Hey,

When I start aterm I have to specify a looong list of arguments (geometry, font, fg, bg, tr, sb, etc., etc.). This hasn't really been a problem as I just had that stuffed into .fluxbox/menu..

But I'd want aterm to start with my settings _everytime_, i.e. just by typing 'aterm'. I hope you get the point?

Just one question now: HOW? I'm assuming there's -some- conf file..

Anyone?

I use .Xdefaults
Code:
aterm*cursorColor: green
aterm*colorMode: true
aterm*borderwidth: 0
aterm*pointerColor: yellow
aterm*transparent: true
aterm*shading: 60
aterm*background: black
aterm*foreground: white
aterm*scrollBar: false
aterm*fading: 60
aterm*saveLines:4500
aterm*geometry: 90x25+20+5
aterm*loginShell: True
aterm*font: -xos4-*-medium-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1
debian uses .Xresources I think
