Eterm - 2 short questions

1. having some problems with the --geometry syntax to start my Eterm in the bottom left corner of my desktop. ie. starts up at the bottom.

my command so far is...

Eterm --geometry=200 'this allows me to start it with the size of 200 (length x width) however i cant seem to get its location. keep getting an error.

can some1 give me the proper command? thx.

2. when i place my

exec Eterm -x --scrollbar=0 --menubar=0 --geometry=200 &

into my .xinitrc file to start up Eterm at the start of X. i cant seem to get it transparent... always uses the default background...

any tips?
