Transparency with aterm under fluxbox


hey ho

I'm using fluxbox and just searched for a terminal emulator with transperancy. I chose aterm and it works fine with the "-tr" option.
But if I enable shading with "aterm -tr -sh 50" or another value for "-sh" the background is just black. I can't explain this behaviour, so I think it's a bug.
Is there anyone with a solution for me?
thanks

Try something like
Code:
aterm -tr -sh -50
or
Code:
aterm -tr -sh -60
Code:
aterm -tr -sh -100
You get the idea.

i tried nearly every variation :/

EDIT: the only thing that works is "aterm -tr -sh 100" (full transperancy)

you have to install "feh" or another application mentioned above. These programs have git the task to set your background image.
just have a look at

http://fluxbox-wiki.org/index.php/Ho...the_background

for further information

comprookie2000: how did you create these nice bubbles on top of the screen?
