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.

Squeeze with Fluxbox on a P4 with 4GB RAMs.

I run a little script that changes the wallpaper, all of which has been obtained from legit wallpaper sites, such as gnome-look.org, every 30 minutes.

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.

Well, I'm using terminator ... and the OB entry is:
Code:
terminator --geometry=950x600+500+25 -b
it's the " -b " that does the borderless thing

Thanks, I'll have a play with terminator.

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.

Code:
$ 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.

Thanks, I'll have a look. I must admit most methods of doing it sound to have their own complications and drawbacks.

In openbox there is the option to hide the decoration of any window, also is possible to set that in the config file to have all windows undecorate at launch time.

I recall doing that with urxvt on my old lappy with openbox- but the details currently escape me.

One of the terminals I use is xfce4-terminal. So to hide borders I use the command
Code:
xfce4-terminal --hide-borders --hide-menubar
I also use Konsole, which doesn't seem to have the ability to be called from the command line without borders. So I let Fluxbox handle that for me.
Code:
[app] (name=konsole) (class=Konsole) (role=MainWindow#1)
  [Dimensions]	{800 400}
  [Position]	(UPPERLEFT)	{20 630}
  [Deco]	{NONE}
And if your terminal emulator and window manager can't hide borders, there's always devilspie.

If it's borderless there is still a task bar? That kind of defeats the purpose doesn't it?

I'm use to:
1. [Ctrl]+right-click near an edge to resize, (with conky too)
2. [Ctrl]+left-click to grab and move, (with conky too)
3. [Ctrl]+centre-click to goto open apps behind the one being used.

Another desktop: CrunchBang 11 (Debian Stable) + OpenBox

Also the multiple windows in terminator are cool:

Everybody has their preferences.
