Try +sh. For some reason the flags in aterm are extremly wierd if you ask me. Some of them work when you use + and some of them work when you use -.

What do you mean it didn't work? It made it transparent right? Isn't that what you wanted? I don't understand what you are looking for here.

oh I see. Did you try using '-tint black' as one of your options?
