transparent menus on windowmaker


First, I've seen a few screenshots of people using windowmaker and somehow getting it to have kind of translucent menu's, not entirely transparent but with a gradient or an image on it.. You get the picture, I hope. Anyways, does anyone know how to accomplish this? (On Mandrake 9.1 if that would make any difference.)

Second, is there any type of true transparency for terminals? Not just using a background for the terminal background, but a true transparency? Using aterm right now and have been very pleased with it, but just as anyone always striving for more.

Third is icons with WindowMaker that automatically pop up in the top right hand corner. I'm sure there's some way to change what is brought up. I've tried right clicking them and then going to settings and changing them from there, but they always change back on a restart of WM, and also is there any way to add icons that will auto boot? I don't remember how I did earlier, but I got to the point of setting where it says "Start on Boot" for one of the programs, but it also didn't work upon a restart of WM.

Thanks in advance.

Found there's no true transparency without more work than it's worth, so I'm stuck with the other two questions.

I finally found a way to get the transparent menu, but I don't know how to do it exactly. I downloaded it from http://vlaadworld.net/ and am lost on what to do after that. Anyone?

i think the configuration for window maker is in your home directory under
.GNUstep
what you edit in there should answer 1 & 3
