[SOLVED] Make the panel show up above maximized windows

Postby oracle2b » Thu Sep 06, 2012 11:46 am

http://www.webupd8.org/2011/05/get-minimalistic-wingpanel-like-xfce4.html

I successfully used the instructions from the above site on xubuntu 12.04 but it didn't work on linuxmint 12.04 xfce.

The command :

Code: Select all

xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -p /panels/panel-0/disable-struts -t bool -n -s true


did not make the panel to show up above maximized windows .

What can I do to fix it.

I Solved the issue..

I went into

Code: Select all

 xfce4-settings-editor
and saw that linuxmint uses "panel-1" by default and not "panel-0" that xubuntu uses.

This command fixed the issue.

Code: Select all

xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -p /panels/panel-1/disable-struts -t bool -n -s true
