Icon only with minimised windows.(not solved)

Postby viking777 on Tue Feb 22, 2011 12:40 pm

When I open several windows in an openbox session I get a panel that looks like this:

Ignore the number at the front, that just tells you I am working on desktop 1

But when I open several windows in fluxbox it looks like this:

I prefer the openbox look. Can anyone tell me how to achieve that in flux?

By editing your tint2rc file, and changing the following under the task section : task_icon = 1, task_text = 0, and task_maximum_ size = 32 32 (you may have to try different numbers here)

Thanks very much indeed Richy - excellent information.

It wasn't actually the solution because my tint2rc was already configured the way you suggested, but it certainly showed me the way to go. What I had to do was this:

Autorun tint2 in Fluxbox
Remove fluxbox pannel and systray in ~/.fluxbox/init
Remove systemtray from the list of items in the line session.screen0.toolbar.tools.
On line session.screen0.toolbar.visible: true. Change true to false.
Add (sleep 2s && tint2) & in ~/.fluxbox/startup
Restart Fluxbox.


Taken from a different page of the site you linked to.

Anyway it works beautifully now, so thanks again.

Damn!

You are going to think I am an overly picky pain in the rear now. :lol:

My Panel now looks exactly like I want it to look but I find out that I have lost access to the fluxbox window menu. This is the context menu that appears when you right click on any minimised window and allows you to do things such as save the size, position, workspace, head (if you have two screens) that any window will open with. As I have two screens I use this a lot and now it has gone because I have have handed over control of the panel to tint2 instead of flux.

The functionality part is of more importance to me than the 'look' of the thing so I will have to revert to the fluxbox panel management. I have read the tint2 wiki and the fluxbox one and I can't find a way to have the best of both worlds - unless somebody knows differently??

yes, you can't get both.

In tint2 you have some action on task. See mouse section http://code.google.com/p/tint2/wiki/Con ... on_on_task

The workspace, position, ... of Window are managed by the Window manager. You can check rc.xml in openbox config directory.

Thanks for that thil7, I will just stick with the Fluxbox setup it is easiest to configure. Not as good looking as tint2 though.
