Fluxbox Window Behavior

Hi there. I just migrated from WindowMaker to Fluxbox. I just have a quick and stupid question. How can I remove the titlebar from windows and set them in the background...i.e. -- in windowmaker, I could make my terminal simply appear as part of the background. How can I do that with fluxbox? I can't find window behavior in the documentation anywhere. I use Eerm, btw. Thanks.

Get 0.9.6 and toggle decorations off. I don't think 0.1.14 can do it.

If you use Eterm, you can remove decorations via eterm configuration files (borderless=1)

I am curious about the smae thing: I use aterm..
I dont have any decoration on my aterms,

Also i want the term to start at a specific location of my screen. That should be possible i guess?

I.e. Start aterm with no window decoration at X-pos 100 Y-pos 50 and (that one i know) -geometry 100x10 so i can see my logfiles realtime...

(i know use:
aterm -tr -trsb -fg grey -sh 50 -g 100x10 -e tail -f /var/log/messages

This is what i want, but i want to autostart it, and position the window at my screen on startup instead of moving it myself.... How to do that?

Just a quick one, what does the "-e tail " do?

Satriani - if you're using 0.9.6 set it the way you like it and right click on the window border and use the remember functions.
cclavey - the -e lets aterm know the config is done and the next command is the actual terminal command to run.
