Hey all,

Sorry for the delay in responding, bad couple of days followed by more of the same.

prit1,
I am using icewm and start wbar from .xintric. I had sleep 3 at the beginning of the line when I was still getting the block. Following your success, I changed it to sleep 6 and it worked just fine. WhoDo had me use sleep 6 to get blinky to behave also. Now both look good. I noticed Meshica7 used 85 for his -balkfa value. Did you use something similar for your setup?

Meshica7,
Could you please post a copy of the file so I can replace it myself? I am using fatfree puppy and I have no experience with GIMP at all. I like your results and doubt I will live long enough to learn enough gimp to duplicate them. I can not even draw stick figures.Smile Off Topic, please excuse. Did you ever get your graphical interface from CatDude working? Mine works, but the website where the various screens are hosted just goes into a continious load/reload. I hope you faired better.

WhoDo,
Nice new avatar. Sometimes you just gotta shake things up. Nice work, did you create it?

Thanks all, Chris.

@wolfwatcher51: Am glad it worked for you. I used -balfa 80. You can play around with the values and settle for the one you think looks the best.

Nope. Got it online as the result of a ttuuxxx post about cute tux icons.

Here's the OS X Wbar backbar as promised.
Just right click on the image below and "save image as" to your hard drive.Then replace the osxbackbar.png file in /usr/share/wbar/wbar.icons with the new file.
Note:You can download it directly to the wbar.icons folder if you wish and accept the "replace" option when prompted,Just remember to save a copy of the original backbar png somewhere safe in case you don't fancy the new one Cool .

Meshica7,

Thanks for the file, I installed it and adjusted my -balfa setting and whoo whoo it looks great.

When I moved wbar to the bottom, it was partly covered by the task bar. I guess bottom means bottom of screen not window. I did not know how to adjust this, so i moved the task bar to the top. Not ideal, but I also hid it and I think it may grow on me.

I am very noob, but I am using grub with graphical, the first one they made. I have not tried the newer one because I cannot get onto the web site given to get the different screens. If you would like to go back and forth asking me what I have where, I would be happy to try and help that way. I hope that makes sense, Chris.

Hello all,

Wbar and gDesklets make for one cool looking puppy if I do say so myself.

I use icewm and have moved the taskbar to the top and hidden it. My wbar is bottom, or center bottom and I like it there a lot.

Is there a (easy) way to move it up from the bottom a little? I think it would just look a little better to be up some. When I had the taskbar at the bottom and unhidden, I could not place wbar at the bottom because it was partially covered by the task bar.

Thanks in advance and keep up all the good work on this thing, Chris.

I expect you are going to have to modify the C source and recompile it.
