Question advanced fluxbox question

i've set parameters for aterm in ~/.fluxbox/apps
now all aterm windows open with those parameters... which is SUPER!

the only thing is that i wanna know how to open an aterm window that doesn't obey the rules in the apps file?

or how can i set the rules from the command line (so that i could apply them to each aterm session individually..)

i use the flux devel version
and i DONT wanna start a different terminal program...

Use the "-name" option for aterm. For example, if your apps file has settings for "aterm" you can launch aterm with "aterm -name not-aterm" and you should avoid the ~/.fluxbox/apps settings.
