X - make everything in a window transparent except the text?


I have a chat program (psi) that I *hate* the look of, but love that its a minimal install. Has anyone ever just made a program completely transparent, except for the text?

I'd like to push it up to the corner of the screen, so it looks like im typing into my wallpaper

Thanks all

Check out transset or transset-df. Looks like I picked it up from the rpm-sphere repo
