aterm, xcompmgr, and transset help.


Aight, I'm stumped.
I am running Slackware 10, kernel 2.6.8.1
xorg 6.8.1 or something similar to that.
And I installed aterm to use it as my "default" terminal, now that worked good.
However, I wanted it to look fancy, so I installed xorg 6.8, composite, and transset.
Everyting works, almost.
I made a file in /etc/profile.d/ called bash.sh, that includes the line:
PS1="[\d][\u@\h \w].> "
It's chmoded to be executable, and the funny thing is, it works as root, but as a regular user, I get this output:
[\d][\u@\h \w]:>, and not [Weekday Date][User@hostname directory]:>
What would the reason for that be?
I hade an .Xdefaults file that looked like this:
Code:
aterm*cursorColor:green
aterm*colorMode:true
aterm*pointerColor:yellow
aterm*pointerColor2:yellow
aterm*borderWidth:0
aterm*tinting:#ffffff
aterm*loginShell:true
aterm*shading:80
aterm*background:black
aterm*foreground:green
aterm*scrollBar:false
aterm*fade: 60
!aterm*font: 9x15
aterm*font: 8x13
aterm*saveLines:4500
aterm*geometry:85x30

aterm*color0:rgb:00/00/00
aterm*color1:rgb:cc/66/66
aterm*color2:rgb:66/cc/66
aterm*color3:rgb:cc/cc/66
aterm*color4:rgb:66/66/cc
aterm*color5:rgb:cc/66/cc
aterm*color6:rgb:66/cc/cc
aterm*color7:rgb:cc/cc/cc
aterm*color8:rgb:63/33/33
aterm*color9:rgb:ff/99/99
aterm*color10:rgb:99/ff/99
aterm*color11:rgb:ff/ff/99
aterm*color12:rgb:99/99/ff
aterm*color13:rgb:ff/99/ff
aterm*color14:rgb:99/ff/ff
aterm*color15:rgb:ff/ff/ff
Now, I borrowed this from a post here at LQ.


And another thing, whenever I start X, I would run xcompmgr and transset on the terminal, is there any way of getting this process automated? I don't want a solution spoonfed to me, but I've been searching google for what seems like a decade, and I don't know what to search for.

Oh, and yeah, I tried setting "777" as mode for the /etc/profile.d/ file.
