howto config X11 xload windows once borderlessnot resizeable or moveable
[Problem solved see reply]
I cannot resize or move the xload graph/windows,
since I have right-hand clicked and said I did not
want windows borders.
How can I make the application not borderless?
I cannot use ALT F3 as there is no focus on xload with ALT TAB
(Mandrake 10.1 CE)
Impossible to find which file I need to edit.
There is a hidden .Xload file but it does not seem
to have any properties in it to do with the windows
borders and menus.
Update: I tried KDE hidden files, and log on as a different user.
I have not found where the file is.
xload -bw 20 does not make any change to the new xload window
I have searched quite a bit of the HD, X11 and X86? directory
being carefull with non case sensitive searches and looked a bit
into the display option for X but I am too green.
All the text files I look into did not have any striking
parameter to me to do with allowing the xload window to be sizeable etc.
I can kill xload but it always come back with the same
parameters. If lauched twice in a row, one xload windows has border.
Where do they hide?
What do I need to change to be able to use the mouse again
with the xload application
Is it inside the xload.tar.bz2?? within all the code?
I am fine with CLI if this can solve the problem
Thanks in advance
PS: will not have access to my linux box for 24h
