Hi all,

Just wanted to pass along this info for anyone else who maybe missing their transparent eterm on kde4. (for the record, I would still prefer that, if someone knows how to make it work)

There is an applet to embed any window as a plasmoid here

Just grab all the files and build the applet. I'm using it with hellanzb and irssi. So far, I've had no issues. Just add to the desktop, click the Select Window link.. click the window you want to embed as a plasmoid and you're done :)

Here's the author's site


If you're new to this sort of thing, here's how I built it:

Code:

cd ~/path_to_where_you_downloaded_files
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` ..
make
sudo make install


cheers!
