Panel-like terminal app?
I've gotten my applications on keyboard shortcuts or the desktop menu, but I still use xterm in the place of a file browser (can't find one I like). But I never need the whole window taking up screen real estate, so I was wondering if there was some sort of terminal program that could sit at the bottom of the screen like a panel for when I need to type the occasional whatnot.
Or is there some window border-less translucent terminal app that would run right on my root window? I always see that sort of thing in demo screenshots, but I don't know which package it is or how to configure it such.
Thanks a lot! I've been searching Google with no luck..
