Removing Menu

Postby fluxboxforever » Thu Aug 05, 2010 2:22 am

Hi guys, I'm having some trouble with Linux Mint.

Version: Linux Mint 9 Fluxbox

Ok, so you know how whenever you boot up Linux MInt, there's that menu with 4 icons and the clock at the bottom? I want to remove that so I can fit a dock in there, but for some reason, I can't seem to edit it, and you only edit the "invisible toolbar", that looks similar to the one in Linux Mint 8 Fluxbox. Can anyone help me, I'm really new to this, and I can't seem to remove it whatsoever. Please help me!!!

Thank you :D !

Open ~/.fluxbox (in other words its a hidden folder in your home partition). In there you will find quite a lot of stuff. Look for a line like this;

Code: Select all   prevworkspace, workspacename, nextworkspace,iconbar, systemtray, clock

I am not sure exactly what you want to do but since you mentioned the clock, if I wanted to remove the clock from my system I would delete the word 'clock' at the end of the line :D

Isn't flux marvellous! So easy even I can use it :lol:

The other desktops have all lost their way, it is about simplicity and control, or it should be.
