Question Where can I find fspanel documentation or fspanel.conf ?

I am using Ubuntu 10.10 (minimal install) with openbox+fspanel+conky in my netbook. I added fspanel and conky to the file without problems and they are working fine, but I would like to change how they look.

I managed to edit conky.conf to make it look as I wanted, but I cannot find the documentation for fspanel. When I type "info fspanel" it says "OPTIONS None.", so I guess there are no options to run it from the command line. But, is there an "fspanel.conf" or something like that?

You might be able to find something at /usr/share/doc/fspanel*, or, maybe, fspanel will create some rc file in your home dir when run from first time. Hopefully, that file will also have some hints on how to configure fspanel. You can search for ~/.fspanel* or ~/.config/fspanel* or something like that. The old fspanel web site seems to be down, I have no idea if there's any other place to look for info right now.

You can also check fspanel --help and see if there's anything relevant in there.

In the information about fspanel it says that it can be modified by playing around with fspanel.c , but I couldn't find such file.

I installed fbpanel and it was easy to made it look as I wanted it.



autostart, conf, conky, openbox
