1.) For all I know flux' "--enable-kde" relates to KDE applets, not to the
menu.

2.) That's because the xterm started under X is not a login-shell.
You need to edit ~/.bashrc to get a different prompt.
export PS1="[\u@\h:\w]# "
Alternatively, invoke xterm with -ls, which is forcing a login-shell.


Cheers,
Tink

Mixer, calendar, clock, locker ... all the things that by
default end up in the KDE-bars right-hand corner ...

I'll have to leave the answer to the HOW to others
(personally I find it silly ;}) , but yes, you can :)

You could try reading the man-page for aterm
(or eterm, I don't think xterm supports trans-
parency).


Cheers,
Tink
