^ Just in time; borked my vsido install trying to get nvidia drivers installed. It use to be so easy to get that done; now .... not so much.

Tinkering around, Xfce4 with bspwm as the window manager. True tiling with xfce4 session and desktop management:

   

xfce4 still handles the key bindings which is nice (and a bit of a surprise). Entering the bspwm window commands in xfce4 was a bit tedious, but so far worth it. Pretty smooth operations so far. Need to do something with the taskbar. Like most tilers bspwm doesn't support "iconify" (spectrwm is the only one that does as far as I know) so the iconbar is kind of pointless.

^ Nice. Is that weather app a KDE-only thing?

Thanks, and yes, a 'desktop widget'.

So, four for four...

VSIDO KDE Plasma.  5.9 is really slick.
Clean;


Xfce4-terminal in drop-down mode...

I wonder if you're just missing a dependency. There may be some package needed to allow for rotated text, but it's not getting installed as a dependency for fluxbox since this feature appears to require a patch. Maybe look into that.

Thanks for the confirmation that rotation of iconbar buttons is currently impossible. The commit mentioning a "fix" so that complete text is displayed, it considered the current rotation (orientation). I suppose I too-hopefully misread its intent. Ah, BTW, that reported issue remains -- I'm seeing the last character getting truncated from button labels (the dev probably didn't consider, and text, a variety of fonts) and for Boldface fonts, quite a few characters are being truncated/hidden. MAYBE the issue only arises when a certain setting (or combination: left / right / center / relative / justify) is specified.

The patch I mentioned in earlier post, it refers to files that no longer exist (like "FbTk/Container.cc") so I'll have to hunt for apropriate places to insert the changes.
Apparently the result would be a new button exposed in the Configure}}Toolbar submenu, enabling toggling of "Always horiz button labels".
Hmm, maybe whoever wrote that didn't think it through ~~ toggling on-demand is sort of pointless, b/c in order to fit the horiz textlabels, need to select a theme that specifies wider (taller?) toolbar.

I can't get that functionality working either.

One thing to note though, tabs are different than the iconbar -

these options:

Code: [Select]
session.screen0.tab.rotatevertical: If True, will rotate text on the tab so it is readable on vertically- placed tabs. Once again, use the Configuration/Tab Placement menu.
session.screen0.tab.width
session.screen0.tab.height

relate to window tabs; so if the tabs were positioned on the lesft side of the window, they cold be rotated horizontal and made readable.

these options -

Code: [Select]
toolbar.windowLabel
toolbar.button
toolbar.justify
toolbar.font
toolbar.iconbar

relate to the toolbar/icon bar. As far as I know, those have never had a rotate option should the user want the bar vertical. Probabaly easiest to go with tint2 or some other taskbar for that.
