XFCE - window list on panel, or panel objects on window list?


In XFCE, is it possible to either put the window list on the panel or put panel objects on the window list? That would be much better than having two separate bars. It would also work if I could just get them to be the same height and half the width of the screen, but I don't know a way to change the width of the window list.

Thanks.

There is a panel plugin called xfce4-taskbar-plugin which does what you're describing.
You can get the source and rpm from here: http://developer.berlios.de/project/...p?group_id=910

When I ran ./configure, it gave me this message:

Quote:
checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.4 glib-2.0 >= 2.4 libxfcegui4-1.0 >= 4.1... Package libxfcegui4-1.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libxfcegui4-1.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libxfcegui4-1.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.4 glib-2.0 >= 2.4 libxfcegui4-1.0 >= 4.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
I am running Debian; I installed xfce through Debian. I checked in apt and found that I have a package called 'libxfcegui4-1' instead of the 'libxfcegui4-1.0' that this wants; is there a way to make configure use that instead, or a link I could create to the correct library?

You just need the development package libxfcegui4-dev. However it seems that plugin requires libxfcegui4 version 4.1 or greater, and the current version in debian testing is 4.0.6. You'll have to update almost whole xfce4 just to get this plugin working.

The xfce 4.2 brach is stable now so official debian packages for it should appear pretty soon. There already are some unofficial builds such as this. Just in case you decide to upgrade; Xfce4.2 stores config files in ~/.config instead of ~/.xfce4. You'll have to transfer old config files manually to the new location.
