I Can't configure the LXDE dock

I have just installed LXDE on my Debian Lenny system, and so far I am fairly happy with it. There is one issue though: I would like a simple, fast dock. After deciding on just using a panel as a dock, I created a semi-transparent panel on the bottom with the applications I use the most.


I would like to do something more like: in terms of icon size and dock placement.

Also, the dock should be below all windows, and, as of now, it is above all windows.

Thanks to everyone who responds.

lxde panel

Right click on the panel.

Lots of configuration right there.

Maybe not exactly like the other example, but something approaching it.

On the Advanced tab, try unchecking the line that starts with Reserve space and under Automatic hiding try checking the box.

What you said didn't work, but I decided to just ditch the idea and not have a dock. Instead, I put a link to google-chrome, lxterminal, and PCMan file manager on the top left as these are the applications I use the most.


debian, desktop, dock, launcher, lxde, panel
