    Transparent *terms

    found this cool link, and it worked well for me, if there is anyone out there that wants to do the same, check it out.

    Just in case the page changes, i will c/p it below:

    Have you wondered how people get those cool looking terminals that look transparent and have no borders? Here is what I do running KDE,icewm and aterm.

    To get rid of the borders on aterm(or any application) I envoke aterm by doing this:'kstart -type Override aterm'. Now you're probably thinking "Crap I can't move my window!", that's easy enough. To move your window(without borders) just press Alt+Left_click and move your terminal around as you please. To resize your terminal just press Alt+Right_click and resize. For all the other cool looking stuff I use .Xdefaults(in the home dir). You can find a copy of mine here.


    Once again, if the site disappears, just find me on IRC and i will send the .Xdefaults file

    Re: Transparent *terms

    They could also just start aterm with aterm -bl -tr -sh 50 -fg yellow +sb -ls

    What that does is give you only the aterm window with no borders, makes it transparent, tints it 50%, provides the text color yellow, no scroll bar, and gives working directory.

    From what I take of it, the no scroll bar is supposed to be -sb but it only works for me if I have +sb go figure, pretty much the same for the login shell. I have to use -ls instead of +ls.

    Doing an aterm -help will give you a list of what it can do.
