Fluxbox Window Cascading


I've searched high and low for this and can't find it. How do I prevent Fluxbox windows from stacking on top of each other? When I have a Firefox window open and then open a new Firefox window, it completely covers the previous window. Is there a way to cascade the windows so that it's easier to go back and forth between them? Is this a layer setting?

Thanks,
Kent

I don't believe thats possible. What version of Fluxbox are you using? If your using 0.1.14 you might want to upgrade to 0.9.10 which has the ability to dispay tabs for all the opened windows in toolbar.

Check out this one:
http://www.fluxbox.org/features/tabs.php
The only difference between the 0.1.14 tabs and the newer (0.9.10+) is their location. In 0.1.14, the tabs are external (which I miss) and in the newer versions, they are integrated into the window title bar. Once you get used to using tabs, you'll love it. I can't stand using a window manager without them.

That's odd...I didn't get email notices of these responses. Great minds off the same track.

Anyway, I figured out that by setting up Firefox as a group, the window tabs appear at the top. Now if I can just modify the titlebar color for more contrast between the active and inactive windows.

Thanks again.

how about rt click, fluxbox menu, configure, window placement? Maybe that doesn't do what your asking though.

That must be from an older version, I don't have that menu option.

You might also like to experiment with firefox's excellent tabbed browsing. With the optional tabbrowser extensions, that you can download, the options are many. You will not want to open a second window once you get used to it.
