Post by: mocore on November 08, 2013, 10:18:07 AM
hi i have revisited (http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index.php/topic,12371.msg73392.html#msg73392) some available 'desktop terminal' options   
and found the step's from
https://pickboy87.wordpress.com/2010/03/11/embedded-terminal-on-desktop/

simple to follow / modify
to work with tc & openbox

this is what changed

URxvt.cursorColor:white
URxvt.foreground:white
URxvt*scrollstyle: plain
URxvt*thickness: 6
URxvt*scrollColor: #454545

Maybe you find these useful too:
Code: [Select]
URxvt*scrollstyle: plain
URxvt*thickness: 6
URxvt*scrollColor: #454545

The same can be done with Fluxbox:

By adding the following to ~/.fluxbox/apps
Code: [Select]
[app] (name=aterm-desktop) (class=XTerm)
  [IconHidden] {yes}
  [Sticky] {yes}
  [Layer] {12}
[end]

Then start aterm like this
Code: [Select]
aterm -name aterm-desktop -geometry 80x50+0+114 -bl +sr -tr -trsb -sh 80 &

thanks!
the slimmer scroll URxvt* scrollstyle thickness scrollColor   settings look better
with fluxbox
 uncommenting  'background: none'   disables fluxbox / lastwallpaper eg
~/.fluxbox/overlay
Code: [Select]
! The following line will prevent styles from setting the background.
background: none
