Aterm - a way to store its settings (getting rid of a mile long argument list)


When I start aterm I have to specify a looong list of arguments (geometry, font, fg, bg, tr, sb, etc., etc.). This hasn't really been a problem as I just had that stuffed into .fluxbox/menu..

But I'd want aterm to start with my settings _everytime_, i.e. just by typing 'aterm'. I hope you get the point?

Just one question now: HOW? I'm assuming there's -some- conf file..
