Fluxbox layer eterms seperately

I would like to set different eterms with different layer settings. For instance I have two eterms that I would like to be set to the bottom layer, where as any other eterms opened I would like to be set at normal layer. Is this possible (I'm sure all things are possible), but does anyone have a feasible solution.

Also, I have two eterms I would very much like not to appear on the toolbar as applications, is this possible and or feasible.

Thanks in advance,

There is most definitely a solution to all your questions. Unfortunately I'm not on my linux machine right now so I can't give you my configurations but I can give you some sort of idea. First off you are going to want to check out this link:

Fluxbox Apps File Info

The basic jist of it is the following. Create the following in your apps file
 [app] (eterm1)
         [Layer] {4}
* 2 - AboveDock
* 4 - Dock
* 6 - Top
* 8 - Normal
* 10 - Bottom
* 12 - Desktop

Now the short cut that launches Eterm should be like this
Eterm --name eterm1
That will make it launch on the layer that you want. For the ones that you want on a different layer just name them differently and create another group in your apps file. As far as making it not appear on the task bar add this as an option
[Hidden|IconHidden|FocusHidden] {yes|no}
# [IconHidden] {yes|no}: Hides the app from the icon bar
# [FocusHidden] {yes|no}: Hides the app from the window cycling list used Next/PrevWindow key bindings.
# [Hidden] {yes|no}: is both [IconHidden] plus [FocusHidden]

Now this is all just a summary of the link above, but you should be well on your way. Good luck
