Eterm Questions and Config??? post your .cfg file???


I have read posts about Eterm until my head is about to explode. I installed from source and that didn't go so well. So i installed a Slack package from (i use slack current).

All is almost well. in my~/.Eterm folder under themes i have been playing around with the user.cfg file. And for the life of me i can't seem to change the font. Finally got it to change to a larger size but not a different font.

Also, i have been able to make it borderless but i can't figure out how to get it to open at a specific place. Can i define an X/Y variable of somekind to get it to open at a particular space on the screen.

Also, whenever i open Eterm it opens to a random background..sometimes marble, sometimes some ugly read thing. them when i try to use the menus to chage it it won't change. I don't have a background photo specified in my ~/fluxbox user.cfg file. I would just like a plain black background. I would also like for the menus to work to change the background should i decide to. Can i make the main font be green?

If you have a really cool config you dig. Could you post your file here so others can get some ideas from ya?

Thanks alot everyone and Peace,
