yes, I found that option, but you know if there's a way to hide the border on terminal so I can have a terminal stick on desktop?....maybe a command line option to run the terminal at startup?

Yes.

Code: Select all
echo 'x-terminal-emulator &' >> ~/.xsessionrc

Thanks for your reply....sorry to bother you again....but it's also possible to autostart the terminal keeping the process hidden inside the tarskbar?

Some terminals can do that but I don't think there's a universal option so you would have to make sure that the x-terminal-emulator alternative was linked to a terminal that actually supported the option (or replace 'x-terminal-emulator' with the specific terminal command).
