Exclamation HELP with Themes/RXVT.


I use Window Maker. How do I make RXVT or any term program appear transperant or display an image in the background?

I have been curious about this too, I am looking for an "invisible terminal' so I can do a tail -f on my logs and have them overlap my wallpaper. I have seen several screenshots of people doing this, but I could never find any info on how to do this.

I am looking for something that will do what is in the upper left corner of this image.

In the terminal menu under Settings/Preferences/Image select transparent.

Then if you set frame type to none by clicking in the upper left corner, and then hide menu bar by going to Settings/Preferences/General you will have an invisable terminal.

How do you import an image into the terminal program? And which term program are you using?

I can get rid of the title bar, frame, menubar and scrollbar in konsole under KDE 2.1.1 but only if it is set at fullscreen.

I can also get a picture to set in it if I set it to transparent. If I do that it will use whatever you have set as the desktop wallpaper.

I tried doing this for RXVT but I couldn't find any menu so I could change any of these settings.

I don't think this is what either of us are looking for so maybe someone else has an idea.
