I thought I'd mention, using `wmctrl', it's easy to set the panel (currently I only have one panel) to be below your windows. Below is a simple shell script I wrote which pops or pushes my panel. If I had more than one panel, I'd need to figure out how to identify it using `wmctrl' - although I suspect it may be doable with `devilspie'
pablo@oreo-1016-[bin]: cat toggle_panel_layer #!/bin/sh # # Toggle whether the panel is always on top or always on bottom. # # Each subsequent calls flips the state of the panel. # wmctrl -r xfce4-panel -btoggle,below exit $?
My plan is to create a customizable menu item which runs my shell script.
I hope the above idea helps someone.
You put this in the /bin folder? I did so exactly as written, but when I tried to execute the file it gave me the error:
/bin/toggle_panel_layer: 9: wmctrl: not found
I don't suggest you place the script in `/bin', I'd place it in `~/bin' and ensure $PATH includes `~/bin'
The `wmctrl' error is due to the application not being installed on your machine.
