xterm


I have been using aterm for a while now.. but i need to use vi and aterm is not well built to use vi... does anyone knows if xterm create a separate file like aterm does so you can insert the consoles configuration and have it start the way you want ( i.e. Transparantcy )

how is aterm not well built? it's the only x terminal I use, and I never had a problem.

I don't think you can do transparency with xterm.

I use gnome-terminal

it's very friendly for me, I did notice problems with vi and aterm, vim seemed to solve that problem, but I'm not sure if it was just that I used packages from linuxpackages.net or not

Anyway, gnome-terminal, as I just discovered, has the same transparency functions as aterm. go Edit> Profiles >Edit (selected profile, in my case, it's Default) > Effects > Transparent Background

The more I use Gnome, the more I love it, really

What kind of problems? I've never used vi, but I use vim all the time with aterm and never had trouble...I'm just curious about the differences.

Well, with aterm, it only seems to display the first line, and that is just tagged on after the user@host:~$ part

gnome-terminal works wonderfully for me, but then again, I only use Gnome and XFce4, so I can't vouch for other de's or wm's.
