Gkrellm on desktop(background)

Hi all,

You know how you normally have a border around apps? With the minimise icon, the maximise icon, and close icon, etc? How do I make apps load up in FVWM without that border?

I want to load up gkrellm, but don't want it to move, or focus on it, or minimise/maximise/etc. I just want it there in the background.

Any ideas?

found it

Ok I found out how:

in .fvwm2rc add:

AddToFunc StartFunction
+ I Exec exec gkrellm
And then further down in the Style section add:

Style gkrellm NoTitle, Sticky, WindowListSkip, StaysOnBottom, NeverFocus
