I'd like to configure my openbox so that it can show/hide a window based on a 
keystroke (I have some unused buttons on my kb), but can't figure out how. 

What I want to do is to crate a windows, that will be invisible in a normal 
manner (cant alt-tab there, doesn't show in taskbar) and still be able to switch 
to it with a key combination (press to show, press again to hide). I'd like it 
to show my /var/log/messages all the time (like 12th text console, but I don't 
like switching to text mode).

I browsed the manuals and didn't find anything that would do it. Is it even 
possible? Does anyone know how to do it?

Best regards Ladislav Láska
