Description:

This script calls the "kstart" application to start a terminal
which is borderless and transparent at a choosen position
of your desktop. This terminal has no entry in the taskbar
and runs like a daemon.

In this version the standart terminal is "Eterm"
because aterm's "borderless" and "transparency" options
seems don't working in some builds(e.g. SuSE).

The optimizing of the script is really easy.
You only have to change the geometries, colors and some other stuff.

Enjoy!
(...sorry my english is really bad :)

if you type aterm -help or --help
can you find a "borderLess" or "-/+bl" option anywhere?

"-/+bl turn on/off no decoration"

or

"borderLess: boolean"

the -bl option of aterm is the "borderless" option.
This is fatal for your problem XD

hmm - make sure you have aterm version 0.4.2 installed ;)

In next version(0.2) there will be an Eterm exaple too.

konsole don't work - you can't remove the border - and for transparency you only can load a "schema"-file - you can't give him options like: "--trans 50"

You can get rid of the Window Borders the following way:
1. Right-Click Titlebar
2. Advanced->No Borders
