Hi Vicmz,

How can I get docked apps to show their task title under Openbox with lxpanel? Right now they are compressed, which gets confusing.

I'll show you what I mean.....

Right-click the panel, select Panel Settings and check the Panel Applets tab, maybe the Spacers are set too long. Or maybe you have too many tray applets/app launchers for your screen width, this should not be a problem if you have an HD-sized screen though.

You can also try this:
- Right-click lxpanel in the middle and select Taskbar (Window List) Settings.
- Tick or untick the Icons Only option and see what happens.
- If this does not work, click Menu > Setup > Choose Panel to reinstall Lxpanel.

Remember that the size of window buttons in the panel depends on how many windows you have opened and how wide is your screen. In a 1024x768 screen resolution, many windows opened at a time will automatically cause to compact window buttons accordingly. Tooltips are always present to display the title of the windows unless disabled manually.

Thanks Vic, that did the trick Very Happy

For bonus points you could tell me how to configure tint so that maximised windows don't cover the task bar (or whatever I was using a taskbar) but only if you know from the top of your head, I'm sticking with LXpanel for now anyway so I don't want to inconvenience you. Thanks again.

Right now I don't know about Tint2, but Openbox Window Manager Config (see Desktop menu) does have an option to set desktop margins. By default, Openbox desktop margins are set to 2 pixels, enough to right-click in any corner and see the Openbox menu. Try setting the top or bottom margin to the height of Tint2 panel.
