Fluxbox tab placement menu


I'm using Fluxbox-0.9.12 and I can't find the tab placement menu under the fluxboxmenu>configure menu. What version do I need to get to be able to control the tabs, all I can do is have tabs on the titlebar, I'd rather have them vertically.

Or if I'm missing something and I can do it with this version let me know.

I think (this is only guessing) that tab placement is no longer possible, since they are now embedded in the titlebar. Personally I prefer it this way, but i tried as a test to make them stick out the side of a window and couldn't do it.

I personally preferred them when they stuck out the botton or the side :\ I don't think you can change the tab positions with the new one...

You'll need to go back to 0.1.14 for that. The new(er) versions
have eye-candy added and features lacking ;)

Heresy!

multiple apps displayed in toolbar = feature
apps file (remember) = feature
fluxbox command dialog = feature
window snap = feature
window menu = feature
bindkey = feature
save slitlist = feature
poking tinkster in the eyeball = feature

These are a few of the additions to fluxbox which make it BETTER without the need for eyecandy, heathen
