Question Disabling Window Decoration on Scripted Programs


Using Enlightenment on Debian with an .xsession startup script.

I am currently trying to use a script to start a program (a clock) and position it on the screen when a user boots Enlightenment (no problem). The only problem is, I want to get rid of the buttons and headers that come as standard decorations on windows.

What I tried to do was listed at linux-magazine.com/issue/11/xclock.pdf which instructed the following:

Code:
dclock -geometry -0-0 &
xnodecor -w dclock
I have not been able to find any information on this "xnodecor" program.

Any ideas?

-Matt

Note: I've only been using Linux for 6-7 months, so try and keep it simple.

Fixed it

Never found nodecor, but I did manage to use my .xsession file to start and position my clock using the --geometry tag, and then use the native "Remember" function in Enlightenment to save the border state. There's a few programs out there that said they would strip out the border for me, but none worked.

My faith is again restored!
