If you are running MC and don't load flwm, there won't be any title bars ( or any window management ).
Just launch your desired programs in the background from .xsession.

hi gerald_clark,
                 Can you please elaborate on he same for Tinycore, im not using MicroCore.
Which line in .xsession or which is the application responsible for showing up the borders and title bars around, in TC needs to be commented out/ removed.
Please help

Comment out the line in .xsession that begins '"$DESKTOP"'.

you can use xsetroot to set the cursor but that is in the Xorg extension

you can also use the evilwm extension to get a minimalist wm.

I remember myself not using any wm back on my Debian machine. Just added a command line to launch an aterm with size and position stated via -geometry parameter.

In fact it was irssi running in that aterm. Then, via aliases, I launched every needed app with its corresponding -geometry parameter. As I defined position and size at launch time, I never had the need to move or resize anything.

But I do agree evilwm is more user friendly. By far. Just keep this at hand:

Not from a user's standpoint unless the developer added it into the app and/or the wm allows you to.
