    Rastar:

    Try putting this into your ~/.Xdefaults file:

    Code:
    *VT100.Translations: #override \
         <Key>BackSpace: string(0x7F)\n\
         <Key>Delete:  string("\033[3~")\n\
         <Key>Home:   string("\033[1~")\n\
         <Key>End:    string("\033[4~")
    *ttyModes: erase ^?
    I don't know if it works, but I've heard of other people having the same problem as you and the above had worked for them.

    For further info, try looking at these:

    I use Aterm's transparency(blackbox wm) to wow some of my customers. I do independant Winders(TM) support for folks in my local area.
    When I fire up my laptop and they see just how cool it looks, a few, just a few, ask how they could get something like that on their machine. Which brings the customer and myself onto the topic of Linux
    We then get into a serious discussion on what Linux is, how things work, and the advantages/disadvantages it might be for them.

    So, in essence, I use the transparency as a subtle, but powerful, Linux advocacy tool.

    I use transparent damm near everything. Well, konsole, xchat, and gkrellm are all running transparent. You do need to pick the proper background when you use the transparent stuff though...

    I use them all the time with Trans but I only have one terminal open ( I use KP's ATerm in FVWM and Konsole in KDE ) but I find myself just doing ctrl+alt+F1 for the console stuff ... It's so much easier to focus on only one thing at a time .... ( while doing CDPlay in X of course )....

    In screenshots I often see transparent terms. I find trans. terms, aterm in my case, to be cool looking but not very practical. I prefer white text on black background.

    So, do any of you actually use trans. terms or is it only for posing?
    I agree. It's kind of cool to see them but they're not very practical (sometimes, kind of hard to work with).

    I always use a transparent Aterm, but then again, I also make sure that my background of choice is of a dark base, with not too much going on, so I can easily read my terms. I design my layout *around* my terms, not the other way around.
