LM 18.3 Xfce up to LM 19.3 Xfce show xclock always on top of browser that is in fullscreen-mode

Post by secureIT »

LM 18.3 uo to LM 19.3 show xclock always on top of firefox or waterfox which are in fullscreen mode (without the use of compiz) :

For those who are interested to try it out :

xclock should be already installed on your system - so you dont need to install it.

1. for start of xclock create a keyboard-shortcut with command :

Code: Select all

xclock -digital -update 1
and append it to ALT+C

2. for further selecting it create a shortcut :

Code: Select all

xfdesktop --windowlist
and append it to Alt+W

3. Now open up xclock with keyboard shortcut : ALT+C

4. do a right mouseclick on window-title of xclock and choose "always on top"

5. open up firefox and press f11 to set it in fullsceen-mode.

Now xclock will disappear and stays behind of the browser-window.

6. to bring it back on top of the browser-window :

Press on Keyboard ALT+W

In the upcoming window choose xclock.

Now xclock shows up on top of the browsers fullscreen-window.

And it will stay there ..... even if you scroll- or do other things in that screen .........

Tested with Systems :

LM 19.1 32 bit xfce 4.12.3 ...... works !
LM 19.3 64 bit xfce 4.14.1 ...... works !
LM 18.3 64 bit xfce 4.12.3 ...... works !
