    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.

    http://www.linuxgoons.com/modules.ph...=article&sid=7

    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.

    Enjoy!


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


    Goodluck,

    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.
