@ Boris_the_Bobcat

But you didn't say anything about whether you tried this too: :
I think i got now a Solution for your needs (without compiz) :

1. Create a keboard-shortcut with the command :

Code: Select all

xfdesktop --windowlist

and append it to Alt+W ....... (or whatever you want)

2. open up xclock

Do a right mouseclick on window-title and choose "always on top"

3. open up firefox in fullsceen mode.

Now xclock will disappear.

Use the keyboard-shortcut (see above)

In the upcoming window choose xclock.

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

And it will stay there ..... even if you scroll- or do other things in that screen :D
..... see my penultimate post

@all of you that follows this thread :

is there anyone who tried it, and can confirm that it works ? .... or is it just me, on my system ?

Hello again to all :
dont know why there is no response from others who tried my solution.

I 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 !

This Thread has now over 1200 views and i cant believe, that nobody tried the solution.
So why is there no response ?

I dont want to hijack this thread ..... only want some informations from others ...... and if the solution seems to be common, i will make a tutorial of it.

edit :

o.k. .... will now also give it up to ask for a respond from someone, who tried it .

Seems to me, that there is either in general no interest in doing it .... or that my posts are in common not welciome in this forum.

I will make a tutorial in the next days ..... and hope that it is helpful for some one, who wants to a achieve, that x-clock stays the on top of a browser in fullscreen-mode, like the OP wanted.
