Borderless windows in Gnome?

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?
Thanks,
Tim

Re: Borderless windows in Gnome?

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.

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.   wink

Re: Borderless windows in Gnome?

Uhh... Last I checked, aterm does support a borderless option. At least that's what the man pages say.

Re: Borderless windows in Gnome?

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...)

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

Re: Borderless windows in Gnome?

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