Is there a way to see only the viewport for terminal (Mac OS X 10.8.4)? (That is, can I hide the open/close/minimize buttons.)

The need is for more for a visual desire than a practical one. I'm working on a command-line tool and I want to hide everything else for the user.

    Which terminal? Any? What window manager and desktop environment? (xwinman.org)

    The user can do this themselves. I don't see why you should force it on them for purely aesthetic reasons.

  • @Sukminder Mac OS X 10.8.4, the basic terminal. Jun 5, 2013 at 21:40
  • @Wutaz I mostly agree with you. I still want to know how to do it. :D Jun 5, 2013 at 21:42
  • @cathy.sasaki: Sorry. Have no OS X to play with here, – so not much help I can offer. Had a quick search and it does not look to promising unless you write your own version of Terminal. Use the term "title bar" when you search. E.g. os x hide title bar.

This can be Configured via Compiz

Requires CompizFusion that is come preinstalled if you are running Ubuntu Gutsy or Hardy. If your computer does not supports Compiz, you can follow the method here
