Aterm borderless in XFCE4???

Is there any hack to make aterm in Xfce4 borderless???
AFAIK the xfwm doesn't support disabling window decorations...Transparent aterm looks really cool but the borders are simply unnecesary 8)

I think the latest version of aterm can be run with -bl (border less), you could do it in gentoo, but portage uses patches beyond any reason.

Re: Aterm borderless in XFCE4???

According to the Freedesktop.org standards (which XFCE follows completely),  the window manager should not control whether or not the window has a border. The app should be coded for it. Hence there's no easy option for creating borderless windows.

Once again I convinced myself that in Linux everything is possible big_smile

If you want a borderless Aterm in XFCE4 just download the patch from:

http://mirror.datapipe.net/gentoo/rsync … erm/files/

Then patch the Aterm source and that's all. Thanks oscar_ for the clue and btw. it seems a little strange that one WM's choose to implement the settings of window decorations and others don't.

Stupid question here: How do you actually  patch the file? I have downloaded the source (aterm-0.4.2.tar.bz2) then I suppose I need to extract it? But after, what is the command I have to do next?

Thanks!

Copy the aterm-0.4.2-borderless.patch to the directory where you extracted the source and type:

patch p-0 < aterm-0.4.2-borderless.patch

..inside that directory. Then there's the usual ./configure, make, make install.

Ouch...sorry, my bad. Of course it should be:

patch -p0 instead of p-0.

I must have been tired yesterday wink
