The point of this is not for eye-candy. The point of this is to have
text that is viewable from a transparent terminal; maybe drop shadows
gives off the wrong connotation -- perhaps a text outline would work
As it stands, the background alpha channel is great; I can enter
information from windows under the terminal to it, but as soon as I
move my white/gray text over to a whiter background, it becomes harder
What I'd like is to be able to set the background to be completely
transparent, and have sort of an 'always on top' terminal that doesn't
block the vision of any windows underneath.
I've been trying to go through the source during idle times at work;
is the draw() function in rxvtfont.C where I'm looking for? I'm not
too comfortable in C++ and X programming.
