I have configured my xterm using the following very long commandline:

$ tail -n 1 /opt/ma/bin/materm
exec xterm -T Terminal -bc -bg black +cm -cr yellow +cu -fg white \
	-geometry 80x25 +mesg +nul -rightbar +sb -sl 1000 -u8 \
	-en UTF-8 +mb -fn terminus-16 $*

Having "xfonts-terminus" installed this allows me to use
"/opt/ma/bin/materm" for a terminal-emulator with white text on black
background, a mid-sized and readable font, a yellow cursor and no
scrollbar (but scrolling up to 1000 lines up).

With CTRL-Rright Click the terminal can be further customized for one
session (if you e.g. want to reduce the font size to see more output etc.)

man xterm describes all commandline arguments if you like another
configuration more.
