Hello, all.

I just discovered this trick.

Reference: http://www.info.com/searchw?qkw=opera+no+titlebar+icewm&qcat=web&q=opera+no+titlebar+icewm&qhqn=opera+no+titlebar+icewm&KW=opera+no+titlebar+icewm

Say you are using icewm or lxp-icewm, and you want to remove the borders from your urxvt console.

You load ~/.icewm/winoptions in your text editor, you go to the bottom of the file and and you add:

Code:
urxvt.dTitleBar: 0


Since in recent v. 5 Puppies, a distinction is made between rxvt and urxvt, the console material called by urxvt will not have a title bar while those called by rxvt will still have a border. This can be handy sometimes.

This works for other programs too, such as:
Code:

Conky.dTitleBar: 0
opera.dTitleBar: 1


True, Conky can be made borderless on its own. But if you use its "normal window" parameter, you may still need the above. Then Conky can be treated like a normal window AND have no borders.

The other example is with opera. In this case, instead of erasing the line, you use the "1" if you want opera to have a title bar. (Assuming you previously ran it before without the title bar.)

You can apply this "dTitleBar"trick to any program.

This feature seriously increases icewm's capacity. With this, you can make icewm look like a minimalist window manager (aewm, for example), and still benefit from icewm's other powerful characteristics (highly customizable panel, etc.).
