Oh, you want the answer?  Sheesh, I thought you were just asking if it
could be done.  :)

I'm assuming you're running the devel version, that is, something like
0.9.12 or whatever.

Let's say the app is aterm.  Create, if it isn't in your $HOME/.fluxbox
directory already, a file called apps

[app] (aterm)
  [Deco]	{NONE}

Hopefully it's clear in the email, the word aterm is in normal
parentheses and NONE is in curly braces.

BTW, that's covered on my fluxbox page.

Buffy: Every time you show up like this, you risk all your parts,
you know that? 
Spike: I wouldn't be here if I didn't have a good reason. As 
usual, I'm here to help you and I... are you naked under there?
Buffy: Get out. 
Spike: No, I'm serious. I mean, not about the naked part...
