SystemRescueCD Xfce panel buttons’ grouping
 
Hi guys. I have a SystemRescueCD version which is not the most recent one and it already has this Xfce feature — panel buttons’ grouping. I was searching the environment for “grouping option” and couldn’t find it. Basicly I wanna turn it off so buttons will be just buttons and not groups. Any hint on doing it?

why not look at the way xfce did it? Right click on the desktop in an xfce session.

OK, I looked, and what am I supposed to see there?

Right click on a blank desktop and I see "Arrange Desktop Icons". Works here. Has to be a blank desktop. and with a rescue cd it could be a read only system, so nothing would do it.

No, I don't have anything like this. It's Xfce 4.10 by the way. So they just made it this way for SystemRescueCD with no way to customize? It's worse than Windows.

I'm running the latest SystemRescueCD 4.6.1 startx graphical environment, and the panel Terminal buttons(? rectangles?) at the bottom are grouped into one rectangle called "Xfce Terminal" even though one is just the command prompt and another is the partimage dialogue running a backup... my old version 1.5.8 spread them out (like Windows XP) so I could easily click them, now I have the extra click each time of selecting that group rectangle but now both icons that pop up show as just "Terminal" so I can't even tell which is which until I click into them; at least before I knew that the command prompt was on the left and partimage was on the right, and any other Terminal windows appended to the right and I knew right where everything was.

I right-clicked the Panel > Panel Preferences and found nothing about expanding them out, and tried every other right-click option I could find on it or the Desktop; nothing. Very frustrating, this shouldn't be the default on a temporary-use boot CD GUI, I'm not using this for my normal desktop where I have a dozen windows open that are pinned to the task bar like on Windows 7.
