Question how_to_configure_aterm


Hello I have been trying to configure my aterm but all I can find is relevant information regarding Xterm.

How can I find the proper configuration file .*** of aterm?

Thankyou.

Not sure, but

I think that you may find that it uses the same Xresource file, and if the ATERM values are not set it uses the XTERM values from that file.
I could be wrong, but I seem to remember running into that information while trying to research something very different. I could be misremembering, but a little work with google should bring enlightenment.

hi again

Thankyou. However, in my ubuntu I created the .Xresources file, which did not exist, and it still only configured the Xterm and not the Aterm.

I have searched google and I have not found any help specific to the Aterm. Only to the Xterm.

Is it possible to have a solution specific for the Aterm?

It does use the standard Xresources (check the man page and FAQ).

Try the following:
Code:
echo 'XTerm*foreground: Red' >> ~/.Xresources
xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources
aterm
Do you now have red text in your aterm?

If not perhaps you provide some information about your setup.
