    Code:
    xcalc*geometry: 200x275
    xcalc.ti.bevel.background: #111111
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.background: Green
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.DEG.background: Green
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.DEG.foreground: Black

    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.INV.background: Green
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.INV.foreground: Red
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.LCD.background: Green
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.LCD.foreground: Black
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.LCD.shadowWidth: 0
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.M.background: Green
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.M.foreground: Black
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.P.background: Green
    xcalc.ti.bevel.screen.P.foreground: Black

    Thank you. I don't know if I like your colour settings better (white text on black background doesn't work for me...), but thank you very much for posting that. I had no clue you could change the colours so easily. This is great!

    i just copied the colors from a actual calculator i use to do my bills.
    but yeah it's very simple to change to what ever color you want, just count the keys from left to right for the button #, tip there grouped in 5, for easy counting. you can change any button with "xcalc.ti.button#.background: color" and "xcalc.ti.button#.foreground: color" so you can even mix the text color of each button. have fun.

    Hi guys

    This may sound like a stupid question but do you mind letting me know the type of fonts you are using with your terminal?
    I'm finiding gnome-terminal heavy and sluggish and I want to change to aterm/eterm so long as I can make the fonts look nice

    Cheers

    another option is the xfce terminal, that's what i was using in the screenshot, it might be called Terminal (with the capital T). i like these fonts for the term. -
    DejaVu Sans Mono
    Monospace
    Lucida Console

    EDIT you can get the mac fonts, which include Lucida Console, from here -
    http://www.osx-e.com/downloads/misc/macfonts.html

    in my ubuntu install i have the fonts copied to here -
    /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ttf-lucida

    when that's done you run fc-cache

    then log out and back in and the fonts should be available

    If you don't want transparency, then xterm (or uxterm) is a nice terminal.

    This is what I'm using:

    Code:
    uxterm -bg black -fg white +sb -geometry 100x40 -fa DejaVuSansMono -fs 10
    By the way, transparency works well on urxvt (rxvt-unicode) if you want to use that instead of aterm or eterm. Up to you.


    EDIT:

    ... and here's my screenshot as well.

    - conky
    - fbpager
    - no toolbar
    - no desktop icons
    - Noir theme with a few modifications (many thanks to happy-and-lost for mentioning that one; great-looking theme)
    - urxvt (rxvt-unicode) for a transparent terminal (eye candy)
    - uxterm for my regular terminal (getting work done)
