In KDE 2, you can start an application (window) without borders like this:

        kstart --type Override <appname>

So for example, to start a transparent Konsole without borders eterm-style,
you could say...

kstart --skiptaskbar --skippager --alldesktops --type Override konsole

...then remove Menubar, Toolbar, Frame and Scrollbar, and finally make it
transparent by choosing "Transparent Konsole" from Schema-menu.

I have one more question now. Is there a way to make the window always
tay on the back i.e an opposite to 'kstart --ontop'
