@vicmz

Also, in your pinstall.sh, you have
Code:
rm -r -f /usr/sbin/pfbpanel


That's tough. What if the user does not like your lxpanel variation
and wants to restore fbpanel and its configuration utility? It's none of
my business,
of course, but I think that
Code:
mv /usr/sbin/pfbpanel /usr/bin/panelpfb

and
Code:
mv /usr/sbin/panelpfb /usr/bin/pfbpanel

somewhere else, would be more respectful of the user.

Or do not do anything at all to pfbpanel, since it is not in the way,
at all, of lxpanel.


Only a thought.

Respectfully,

musher0

Hi vicmz & musher0 and All,

Musher0, yours suggestions are probably the better and safer way, but before you posted I had already followed vicmz link and performed the actions suggested by Stu. Big thanks to Stu for the instructions and vicmz for finding them.
After doing so fbpanel no longer appeared on install of pet, load of sfs, or reboot. And PupClocksetManager was able to change the clock format.

And while its a matter of personal choice, I like fbpanel, but use it only if lxpanel isn't available.

Glad to learn that you could solve it. I'll work on an appropriate fix.

In the first post, vicmz wrote:
It's recommended to test in a fresh RAM session first - if you're satisfied, you may save session and keep customizing, otherwise simply reboot and stay with FBpanel. You may install directly into your current save file if you are sure that you prefer Lxpanel over FBpanel.


However I understand your point and appreciate your help. I didn't think it that way. Also, if there are unexpected issues with Lxpanel the user will want to restore Fbpanel. So, as I said, I'll work on an appropriate fix. Thank you all for reporting.

A new version is available in the first post. It has musher0's fix.
