Re: Window borders?


Presumably you are running GNOME without any windowmanager....?
GNOME itself contains no windowmanager, if you want to be able to
move, resize... applications you will have to use one, for 
instance enlightenment, icewm, windowmaker .... there are many around.

Good luck... :)
