Subject description: A handy trick to put in pekwm's autoproperties file
 

Hello, all.

To save space on your desktop, it is sometimes useful to do away with the title bar of some programs.

We've indicated how to do this in icewm earlier:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=77522

Similarly, here is how to have an urxvt window without a title bar in pekwm. In pekwm's autoproperties file (located at ~/.pekwm), insert the following:

Code:
 Property = "^urxvt,^URxvt" {
    ApplyOn = "Start New"
    Border = "True"; Titlebar = "False"
    Sticky = "False"
 }


If you call a cli program with "rxvt -e", rxvt is not affected, and therefore will show with a titlebar, while the same cli program called with "urxvt -e" will not have a titlebar.

If this sounds like splitting hairs... it is! Cool However, minute details sometimes make a big difference -- and help clear your mind!

Let's give credit to whom credit is due... This trick is adapted from:

Many thanks to the anonymous author! Smile

Incidentally...

I decided to use this configuration trick rather than the "-bl" parameter in the urrxvt calling script itself. Using the "-bl" parameter forbids the use of any input device in the console window. I've experienced it, and there are also a couple of reports on Linux forums about the strange behaviour of the "-bl" parameter in urxvt.

"-bl" also makes the window sticky. So in practice, its use would be restricted to displaying a clock in text format or some similar type of permanent data on your screen.
