Thread: root window shinanigans

  1. #1

    root window shinanigans

    First I'll apologise, because I know this has been asked before, but I can't find it.

    On various screen grabs I've seen there *apears* to be stuff like tail -f being out-putted to the root window. I'd like to know how. Is it more likley that it's just a transparent term or is it actually updating the root window?

    Ta.

    hmm .. you can do this with a borderless Eterm for example, but there are also a few tools around which print stuff to the root window..
