Description:

This script calls the "kstart" application to start a terminal
which is borderless and transparent at a choosen position
of your desktop. This terminal has no entry in the taskbar
and runs like a daemon.

In this version the standart terminal is "Eterm"
because aterm's "borderless" and "transparency" options
seems don't working in some builds(e.g. SuSE).

The optimizing of the script is really easy.
You only have to change the geometries, colors and some other stuff.

Enjoy!
(...sorry my english is really bad :)




Changelog:

v.0.11 - script is working (hmm...aterm *grr*)
v.0.2 - Eterm is now the default terminal. I hope now all is working good ;)
v.0.21 - Little syntax error in eterm-command - sorry :/
v.0.3 - Some code changes, more info, looks better - final version I think ;-)

 good job

it works fine for me, only strange thing is: the eterm is not fully transparent, but instead seems to use my 'Transparent' setting for konsole, which is semi-transparent(darker).
i dont really mind though, it looks good! but i thought you might want to know.


# cd /usa/whitehouse
# rm -rf *

Remove the chmod 99 and it gets 100% transperant.
Works for me.

Hi friend,
I 'd like to know what's the name of the system montior (cpu, hd partition, memory) that works in transparency, which is on the left of the screen in your screenshot.

Tnx a lot in advance.

 Quit on shutdown

Is there a way to make the script quit when you shutdown?I'm using SuSe 9.1 and when I reboot I get two terminals if I didn't exit eterm before.

Thanx :-)

P.S.

Pretty smart script!

or disable the option in KDE3 to start all opened applications of the last session - there's no other way i think - :)

I think this should do:

Place this script...:

#!/bin/bash
killall Eterm

...in:

~/.kde/shutdown

...and make it executable with chmod +x

 A simpler fix.

For anyone having the problem with getting two eterms on a reboot, there is a VERY simple solution.

The cause of the problem is that you have kde set to restore your last session on boot. So, it opens one because of the script and one because one was open when you shut down. If you left them both and rebooted, you'd have 3 of them.

There's two solutions:
1. Set kde to NOT restore your last session and to start clean each time.

2. If you want session restore to stay enabled, all you have to do is remove the script from wherever you installed it. Then, open the script in a text editor and copy/paste the command that actualy opens eterm into a konsole and execute it. Now reboot. From then on, as long as you don't close the terminal, it will restart it for you each time you boot, because kde will remember you had it running that way when you shut down. It will even remember that you don't want borders and where it was on the screen.

I use #2 and I'm very happy. clever command. didn't know you could call that directly from the command line. kudo's

 newbie having issues

I really really would like to get this to work. Im running suse 9.1. First off how do i get this to run a start, real newbie at linux. The other and more major issue is when i tried to test this with $ sh odt_script.sh i get this

> sh odt_script.sh
> kstart: WARNING: Omitting --window argument is not recommended
/bin/sh: line 1: Eterm: command not found

then it just sits there without going back to prompt. I have to ctrl-c to get that back. Help if you would. Thanks.

you can ignore thw warning this is okay.
Eterm is not installed on your system. This is why he said: command not found.
Try to install Eterm with YAST or look for Eterm on sf.net ;)

I really don`t know what to do anymore. When I run odt_script.sh it says "kstart: WARNING: Omitting both --window and --windowclass arguments is not recommended", and nothing happends. I have Slackware 10.1 kernel 2.4.29.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
