aterm transparency doesn't work.

Hi, can someone advice me with this problem: when I write aterm -tr, it opens aterm window which's bgcolor is the same as my X background color, but it's not transparent. I use fluxbox, if it may help.

well, it might be transparent but you can't tell, so try shading the transparency with -sh <value>, like this:

aterm -tr -sh 70

and you can set the font color with -fg <color>, so mine is set to

aterm -tr -sh 70 -fg green
