Aterm Text Colour


Does anyone know how (or if I can) change the colour of the text in aterm? Right now, this is my string:

Code:
aterm  -tr -trsb -fg black -bg red
I just want to make the text white, I have a dark wallpaper...

Change the -fg option to white.

aterm -bg black -fg white

will result in black background and white fonts.

Do not forget that you can set your Aterm resources in
an applications default file.

Aterm.geometry: 80x25+0+157

Aterm.loginShell: false
Aterm.utmpInhibit: true

Aterm.transparent: true
Aterm.transpscrollbar: true

!+:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::+!
!| color settings |!
!+:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::+!

Aterm.foreground: #ffffff
Aterm.background: #000000

etc etc
