I would like (in Unity) to open a terminal as startup application; I created a simple script

gnome-terminal --profile=Startup --geometry 40x24+920+300

and put it in my startup applications. Anyway I would like the terminal window to appear WITHOUT its button's bar ont the top of the window itself (the one with the maximize, minimize and exit buttons). Is that possible? I cannot find any way to do it on the Internet.

Why not use the virtual terminal then: ? – i08in Mar 29 '13 at 17:20

I found a better (in my opinion) solution, which is tilda terminal emulator.

You can use the terminal screenlet.

sudo apt-get install screenlets-all

Can you provide instructions on installing this? – Seth Mar 29 '13 at 16:25
It's in the default screenlets-all iirc. sudo apt-get install screenlets-all and use the config gui. It's really straightforward. – RobotHumans Mar 29 '13 at 17:10
Great then! Add it into your answer so its an "answer" ;-) – Seth Mar 29 '13 at 17:11
