Opera won't run on this machine. No Qt.
However, here is the deal, yo. Removing window borders when maximizing
and app has been discussed to death, and won't likely be done. See the
list archives for details. This is why it "works" in Gnome and not in
Removing just one border of a theme is not possible, I believe. You
could make a feature request, but it seems unlikely.
A possible solution is to run a WM with the behaviour you like. You
can run Metacity, which works, as you note, or if the dependencies are
too much, blackbox at least also has this behaviour. Xfce is designed
to be very modular, and allow this kind of mix and match,
Olivier, since this is an oft requested feature, just off the top of
my head, does it add signifigant complexity to make the "Window Border
disappear on maximize" a per theme feature? That may be an awful idea,
it just came to me.
