Eterm can do it on its own. If you use flux-devel or ice, it's a window manager-specific setting for aterm. In ice, set

aterm.dTitleBar: 0
aterm.dBorder: 0

in winoptions.

In flux, you remove the 'window decorations'. For most any terminal dumping the scrollbar is

aterm*scrollBar: False

in .Xdefaults or .Xresources. The command line option is +sb.

No problem. I mean the 0.9x versions - the 0.1x versions don't have the capability.

-- Try to clear that up - yep, fluxbox will work if it's in the 0.9 series.

Should have to do with
aterm -bw 0 (as a command line)
or
aterm*borderWidth: 0 (as an .Xresources line)
but neither seem to work in flux or ice for some reason.

For flux, near as I can figure in that case, it's not doable with 0.1x and with 0.9x it'd be
Code:
[app] (aterm)
  [Deco]        {NONE}
[end]
in the ~/.fluxbox/apps file. There's also a 'toggle decor' bit (define an action in the 'keys' file) and a 'remember' item on the right-click titlebar menu but they seem to be remarkably stupidly thought out - kinda hard to get to the menu to 'remember the decor' when you've just 'toggled off the titlebar decor' that gives you the 'remember menu'. (I'm sure there's an easy way to do it but I don't use flux and didn't feel like figuring it any further than the lines above.) So, yeah, try the apps file. The man page has stuff about most of what flux does.

I have it set up in ~/.fluxbox/keys so I can press the Windows key + F4 to toggle window decorations on and off, just add this line:

Mod4 W :ToggleDecor

Well, like I say, the man page - 'man fluxbox' and '/APP'. Or the website might have some more stuff. Glad it worked.

Yeah - that one's 'man X' and '/GEO'. Basically "WIDTHxHEIGHT+XOFF+YOFF" where +0+0 is the top left corner. X moves it off vertically (left-right) and Y moves it off horizontally (up-down).
