Ah, I see. I don't usually have a visible menu so I didn't see it.

I still prefer to place my three console windows where I want them, but
it was worth having a look.

This is one place where those quake-like terminals comes in handy. I
use tilda, for KDE there's yakuake. Basically they allow you to press
a single key and a terminal pops down from the top of the screen. I
usually have one of those running all the time: I have a tab or two
devote to emerges, another tab handling an SSH -X session to some
other computer, and maybe a tab or two devoted to some command line
tasks. Press a single key and it all goes out of sight.

You'll probably want to run the compile in one screen session, then
tail -f the emerge log in one of the tabs.
