XTERMSET(1) FreeBSD General Commands Manual XTERMSET(1)

xtermset - change settings of an xterm

xtermset [-option ...]

xtermset allows you to change the characteristics of an xterm window from the command line. Most options have the same names as those that you would give xterm at startup.

-store [<filename>]
This option will save all the other command line options given to the filename. If filename is omitted then the options will be written to ~/.xtermsetrc.
-default [<filename>]
This option will load options from the specified filename. If the filename is omitted then the options will be loaded from ~/.xtermsetrc. Options specified on the command line preceed those that are in the options file.
-f, -force
xtermset normally checks if you are using it on a correct terminal (xterm (derivative) or dtterm (derivative). With this option you can override this checking.
-T string, -title string
Sets the window title.
-n string
Sets the icon name.
-fg color
Sets the VT100 foreground color.
-bg color
Sets the VT100 background color.
-mousefg color
Sets the mouse pointer foreground color.
-mousebg color
Sets the mouse pointer background color.
-tekfg color
Sets the Tektronix emulation window foreground color.
-tekbg color
Sets the Tektronix emulation window background color.
-cr color

-hc color

-fn font-spec, -font font-spec

-geom geometry-spec, -geometry geometry-spec

~/.xtermsetrc

bash(1), xterm(1), X(1)

-geom does not support offsets from the left or bottom of the screen. If the geometry-spec isn't in the correct format, the output will be strange.
