Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Running cwm (compiled from sources). Having no taskbar and no window decorations is kind of refreshing. All hotkeys not so much if you have a cat, but service-able. The more pixels on screen and other performance perks makes it a worthwhile look. If you're an old CLI guy like me.
How are people getting the "windowless terminal" working? I've been playing with guake and it's good but I'd like a terminal that sits on my desktop like a conky.
Eterm has --borderless but there's quirks going that route like having to move a window by right mouse on the task bar and select move, instead of just click and drag on the traditional decoration of a wm.
$ Eterm --scrollbar off --buttonbar off --borderless --foreground-color yellow --background-color black --tint 0x888888 --trans --itrans -F *-fixed-*-*-*-*-18-*
It's a pseudo transparency with that one, so you have to set your background image with Esetroot. And you have to do that before launching Eterm to have the transparency. Use xfontsel to identify possible fonts to use and their potential naming convention. Some fonts are not scalable, and support a limited set of point sizes. And some xterms support a limited set of fonts.
