transparant terminal


I am trying to make my aterm terminal semitransparant, ive enabled (unchecked) the transparancy option in /home/my_name/.icewm/preferences

I run aterm (aterm -rv -tr) and all i get is a terminal with a strange black n white pattern...
Ive searched google for help and found no info.
What am i doing wrong?

If you installed it by source, did you compile with the --enable-transparency option?

Do you have Eterm or wterm? Is there transparency working okay?

i had no luck with above but thanks anyway.

I finally got it working by typing: aterm -rv -tr -trsb -sh 30
(dont ask me why this particular combination worked (im a newbie )

I tried eterm (and got it transparent) but i didnt like it, too much menus. I want a clean look.
+ i want to use the commandline as much as possible...

My eterm is version 0.9 and the menu is not at the top anymore. You
ctrl+right click
to get to the menu. I like it because you can
Shift + the + or - on the numeric keypad to change your font and through the menu can change the brightness of your background. Aterm is cool too.
