what version are you running? things hve changed a lot recently. make suer you're on 0.9.10, not a 0.1 branch, and right click over the time (among other places) this shows you the slit menu. go nuts.

just get 0.9.12, it's so so easy to install, and has a huge amount of extra stuff in it you'll wonder how you did without.

Chris,

did they fix the TABs in the more recent 0.9x?

Personally I prefer the 0.1.14 w/ remember patch
because I can create a new group member from the
tab of an existing window ... with 0.9 (at least all
versions I tried [didn't test in 5 months, though]) the
tab was integrated in the titlebar and thus had no
special right-click menu ... bad mistake ;)


Cheers,
Tink

well they got rid of tabs in the visual sense, they get embedded into the title bar. much neater. still a waste of time though.

heh - that's a matter of (bad) taste ;)

I often have about 20 xterms open, and find it
quite handy to group them in "logical groups",
e.g. ssh sessions over external interface, ssh
sessions over internal interface, local consoles.

Tink

it will install just like any other piece of software. what in particular are you after information about? if you install the slack package, then it will just be the new version next time you load it.
