A question about Galeon and Eterm

Ok first with Eterm. I have it set up to have a transparent background. Now I know I can change the shade and font size but when I do it won't save for the next session. I've tried the save session but it just won't work.

With Galeon, it has the box up on the toolbar where you can increase the size of the font. It's set on 100 but when I move it up to like 130 it's easier for me to read. Only problem is it never saves at that size. Am I missing something? I tried going through the prefrences to set font and size but that doesn't seem to have the same effect. Is there a way to save this particular setting?

I've had the same problem with Eterm not saving settings, look at the man page for Eterm and find the options that you want to set, then add the apropriate command line arguments in the link used to run eterm from X.

For example, Instead of the command being:


It turns into:

Eterm -0

I think that turns on transparency
