Fluxbox - vertical taskbar


Well, there is such option: right click on it -> Placement -> Left Center. But nothing happens. I want the taskbar to take place there and be upside-down (now it is horizontal, and can be put at the top or at the bottom, only).
Flxubox 0.9.10

no, it's not possible. the slit can be placed there, but not the bar.

Then what is that option about? It is in the taskbar's menu, not slit's. Well, there is similar, too, but I think it is different.
So there's no way verticalising the taskbar? I think that's a big minus for fluxbox ...

Is there a way to change the size of the taskbar? I want it to be around 30 px tall. There is a percentage around the menus, but it is not the same.
I've saw many fluxbox shots, but there is only the thin taskbar ..

"Is there a way to change the size of the taskbar?"

I've posted this question in this forum, never got an answer from any fluxbox users...

it is only possible by editing the theme itself.

It is possible.. what do I have to edit then in the theme file? I tried adding toolbar.width, or toolbarWidth, but nothing changed. Give me an example of that.

for the width, there's normally i setting on the menu somewhere, it depends which part of the toolbar you right click on for which menu you get. it's a percentage value that you need to set, and it's in the ~/.fluxbox/init file by default i believe. my last reply was referring to the height, not the width.
