View Full Version : [all variants] Openbox - Terminal in Background

Hello everyone,

I'm really interested in getting a terminal in my background with my wallpaper. I've seen countless screenshots of this but can't seem to do it myself. I've followed the ArchWiki guide to a tee but something must be going wrong. I am trying to accomplish this with urxvt. Whenever I try and start urxvt it's window overlaps every other window that is open. Here is my .Xdefaults and rc.xml

.Xdefaults


URxvt*transparent:true
URxvt*scrollBar:false
URxvt*geometry:124x24
URxvt*borderLess:true
URxvt*foreground:Black


rc.xml
