Re: Eterm compiled ok, but no pixmap loaded
Run Eterm with the debug option and check the log. Chances are its failing to to load the jpgs.
If so this could be down to imlib2 and/or libast not building correctly. Or Imlib2 is missing the loaders. If you installed Imlib2 with rpm then you need the seperate Imlib2-loaders rpm.
If you built from src check the Imlib2 and libast configure scripts to make sure they found the jpeg librarys.
