Font, Colors, BG Images for Terminal in KDE (RH 7.1


How do I configure these things? I can use xterm -bg <color> and commands like that from the terminal but is just opens another window. Do I enter those comands in the .bashrc to make them permanent?


Thanks Noffy


Actually now that it is too late I added the xterm line to the .bashrc. that was bad.

This can't be that hard

I am pretty sure this is configurable. Come on guys give some help. I am trying to make my terminal window either transparent or have some kind of background image. Can someone please reply?

If you'd like an xterm to be invoked with certain preferences by default, look into your home directory for .Xdefaults and make your adjustment there.

Note that you're gonna need to do a little research on X's command database (I believe that's what it draws from).

Example:

XTerm*scrollBar: false

will invoke xterm with no scrollbars by default.

You may have to restart X once you amke the changes.
