Hey, you can center any app on the desktop, using kwin (right click on the window frame, Advanced ...)

Well, right click on window deco of konsole (you can do it for any app).

Go to Advanced --> Special Application Settings...;

then select Geometry;

then check "Placement" and select "Force" and "Centered"

Your konsole will be placed on the desktop center.

instead of Geometry, select Preferences --> "No border"

For konsole there's also "--noframe" option, but it doesn't work with my style.

Slackware 12 guide
centershell needs eterm libast and imlib2
I have install imlib already. So I just need to download 2 more package from linuxpackages and install them (DO NOT use pkg from Eterm official website. It is old)

sudo installpkg libast-0.7-i486-1ms.tgz
sudo installpkg eterm-0.9.4-i486-1gh.tgz

make a link to /bin
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/Eterm /bin/Eterm

Make sure you can start Eterm in command line.

run ./centershell.sh or put it to ~/.kde/Autostart

If you are not using 1024X768 screen change eterm position in centershell.sh
Enjoy it
