Hi, I'm trying to get completely borderless and transparent aterm windows in Gnome. I'm able to do this in Enlightenment and *cough* kde. I have it transparent...No scrollbar...etc...but can't seem to figure out how to get rid of the border. Here's my .Xdefaults file that aterm uses:
aterm*scrollTtyOutput: false aterm*backspacekey: 10 aterm*deletekey: 177 aterm*foreground: white aterm*background: black aterm*transparent: true aterm*shading: 99 aterm*saveLines: 1000 #aterm*tintingType: true #aterm*tinting: #c0c0c0 aterm*fading: 50 aterm*transpscrollbar: true aterm*troughColor: red aterm*pointerColor: green aterm*pointerColorBackground: black aterm*loginShell: true aterm*colorBD: yellow aterm*colorUL: magenta aterm*cursorColor: red3 aterm*cursorColor2: yellow aterm*scrollBar: off
Anybody know what I'm missing?
1) Metacity doesn't support this option.
2) Aterm doesn't support this option.
Use a terminal emulator that supports it or a different window manager.
Which terminal does support this?
pacman -S terminal
it has a nice gui conf with an option for this.
Or you can just use Eterm without all the xfce dependencies.
Ahhh...yes. Both of those are great guys. Thanks a lot. I'll play around with 'em and see which one I like best.
Uhh... Last I checked, aterm does support a borderless option. At least that's what the man pages say.
Nice way to read the thread.
Sorry... I realize that a solution has already been arrived at. I'm just pointing out what I'm guessing is a minor error.
(Unless the man pages need updating or something...)
To err is human... to really foul up requires the root password.

terminal has nice and low footprint too. I use it on my bastardized gnome setup.

its nice, until it starts memory leaking

Terminal's nice. It's what I'm using now. I'm still trying to get the fonts set the way I like 'em.
