ok, i got what you mean, i will play with it a bit later. i just got fluxbox a few days ago and am working my way through it.
by the way, i am thinking of setting it up so that when fluxbox starts, 4 terminal windows will start at workspace1 and they will have no title, button bar, scroll, window frame and so on as if they are mounted on the root window. i have got aterm but am thinking of trying out eterm as lots of docs on the net seems to suggest eterm as the one to use. any advice?
From my experience aterm is a good choice, uses less resources than eterm. And with the xterm problem, just open up ~/.fluxbox/apps in nano or something and remove the workspace number for xterm. Can't remember the exact syntax now but it shouldn't be too hard to find
i thought it will be nice to position/size them in one workspace so that i can see all of them at once. and of course i would like the arrangement to be saved so that it can be done automatically when fluxbox loads up.
this is because that i found myself using 3 or 4 terminals at once a lot of time and i am tired of moving them around, so i like to arrange them like
aterm3 is twice the height of aterm1 and 2, in case i am reading long files.
and if i need to use other apps, i will swtich to different workspace.
