i have since switched my file manager to thunar and my terminal to xterm and no dotted edges they seem to be better applications so far.

Oh god no .. sometime I worry about your taste ;)

There may be better file managers and terminals out there .. but Thunar and Xterm are not them  :o

DO NOT under any circumstances remove pcmanfm as it's not just a file manager, it also controls your desktop.

are there anyother lightweight terminal/file managers i can try out? as a graphic design grad the little dots i get sometimes are really ruining the flat look of my theme
 i didnt get these with either of the apps i mentioned above is there any others i could try instead? or any possible reason why im getting those dots?

i tried guake btw and really liked the style but could not get it to autostart if i can get it to autostart on boot i would not mind using that terminal.
unless you know of any better options.

i installed xfce4 terminal has the same effects as lxterminal and no weird dots so sticking with this pretty much seems very similar to lxterminal.
still can not figure out what the other 'dots' are from.
