I'm new to Linux, installed Slackware 9.0 and some very useful additional software and found myself comfortable right now.
I switched to Linux from Win2k and was using the Adress line in the taskbar very extensively because I like to control my PC via keyboard and it gave me very quick access to a lot of things. Is it possible to put such a shell command line into the taskbar? (note: I know about Alt+F2, just asking if it's possible) Thank you for helping!
thats a good question. I have never personally heard of such a thing, but it sounds easy enough to do in theory. Usually if I want to run a quick command without opening a terminal I just left click and use ¨run command¨
I would also be interested in knowing if there is some sort of applet that is a command line..
Sorry - I forgot to add that I'm using KDE 3.1... :-)
jalal: Which one do you mean at KDE? The Alt+F2 option? I'm searching for a plugin to the KDE taskbar which contains a field to type in something that does the same as if I was typing it into the shell... got it? :-)
the icewm taskbar comes with a run box on the task bar, i dont have the gimp installed so i cant take a screen shot but ive found one here notice the small white box in the taskbar, you can type commands in their and they get executed. icewm is a big step down from kde though.
Does anybody know how to change the font size in the application launcher? I set the taskbar size to "small" and now the letters in the app launcher aren't shown completely; they're cutted off at the bottom.
