Did you know?
« on: March 01, 2013, 08:41:02 PM »
A thread to park some tweaks that we do once installed

Here is one

For some reason, the tint2 icon for SpaceFM does not show up as it is supposed to

To correct it do this:

In SpaceFM go to View / Window Icon and put in

vsidosfm

Click OK and the issue is solved

The first time you boot to a Fluxbox session, you may see a terribly fugly brown menu

To correct this click the desktop Right Click Menu / Styles and select vsido_black and the problem is solved

That OB and Fluxbox use the same tint2 files

Code: [Select]
tint2 -c /usr/local/bin/.tint2oblaunchers/tint2rc &
tint2 -c /usr/local/bin/.tint2oblaunchers/tint2rcallbtm

but Xfce uses

Code: [Select]
tint2 -c /usr/local/bin/.tint2launchers/tint2rc
tint2 -c /usr/local/bin/.tint2launchers/tint2rcallbtm

This is because the menu button on the Tint2 bottom panel is controlled differently with Xfce

Fluxbox and Xfce also use the same .conkyrc file becasue both can handle the panel setting while OB uses .conky_ob_rc because it needs:

Code: [Select]
own_window_type desktop

To eliminate the top right hand tint2 and make it a part of the bottom tint do the following:

Code: [Select]
sudo medit /usr/local/bin/.tint2oblaunchers/tint2rcallbtm
or if in Xfce

Code: [Select]
sudo medit /usr/local/bin/.tint2launchers/tint2rcallbtm
and make this happen under Panel

Code: [Select]
panel_items = LTS
That will add the systray to the right of the bottom Tint2

You can now then disable from Autostart or startup this

Code: [Select]
tint2 -c /usr/local/bin/.tint2oblaunchers/tint2rc &
or in Xfce

Code: [Select]
tint2 -c /usr/local/bin/.tint2launchers/tint2rc

Thanks for all of the above, appreciate it, I also set my bottom panel to autohide whilst at it, so now my debiverse is in place again. Just a little suggestion though, change the thread title to something more like "How to...":)

Thanks blaze

All the panels use to autohide by default but some complained that they did not know they were there

I appreciate the feedback
