Xfce4


I have just got addicted to xfce4 but there are three things I'd like to do/know. 1. can xfterm use trancparency? 2. I want to use fluxbox instead of the xfce4 taskbar, is there a way I can use the panel in xfce4 in fluxbox? 3. can xffm use icon layout instead of list? thanks in advanced.

1.XFCE 4.2 supports transparency with XORG 6.8.1 but from what I have read it is still very buggy but then again it is very new.

2.Don't know.

3.Not that I am aware of, which tends to be a big complaint with xffm. But you could use Rox or Konqueror instead.

can't use konqueror because I crashed my kde libs. Rox pisses me off at times. I figured out how to get xfce4-panel to work with fluxbox but everything is all screwy. I might have to reorder some things in my ~/.xinitrc thanks for your answers though .

w00t!!! I got it to work. Fluxbox with the XFCE4-Panel. Look here to see what it looks like on my comp: http://todkon.uni.cc/screenie6.png. (sorry if it doesn't work when you try it. My site goes down sometimes :/.) I put the xfce-panel in my slit script for fluxbox so now gtk with a cool font, the panel, and a few other cool things automaticly load at start up on fluxbox :P.
