[SOLVED] Desktop Icons masked by panel

Hi,

Removable devices icons are displayed under the panel (transparent here) and masked by it. See picture :

Up to date Archlinux.

Thanks for your help.

Re: [SOLVED] Desktop Icons masked by panel

Hello, in the panel preferences window, see if you have "Don't reserve space on borders" option checked. It should be unchecked.

It seems that intelligently means hide the panel when a window is maximized.
Set it to never.

If set to never the icons are well placed but as soon as set to intelligently they are not. So, it's not a option because they should be well placed in intelligently mode too.

A bug ?

Re: [SOLVED] Desktop Icons masked by panel

The desktop icons are managed by gtk3 right ? Is there a way to control the icons spacing by the .css file like it was with the .gtkrc-2.0 which is now obsolete ?

class "XfcePanelWindow" style "xfce-panel-window-style"

style "xfdesktop-icon-view" {
XfdesktopIconView::label-alpha = 0
XfdesktopIconView::selected-label-alpha = 0
XfdesktopIconView::ellipsize-icon-labels = 0
XfdesktopIconView::tooltip-size = 128
XfdesktopIconView::cell-spacing = 0
XfdesktopIconView::cell-padding = 10
XfdesktopIconView::cell-text-width-proportion = 3.3
}

Re: [SOLVED] Desktop Icons masked by panel

If you are using xfdesktop 4.13 (the version in the repositories), it is based on GTK3. You would use something like this in ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css:

XfdesktopIconView.view {
	-XfdesktopIconView-label-alpha:0;
	-XfdesktopIconView-selected-label-alpha:0;
	-XfdesktopIconView-ellipsize-icon-labels:0;
	-XfdesktopIconView-tooltip-size:128;
	-XfdesktopIconView-cell-spacing:0;
	-XfdesktopIconView-cell-padding:20;
	-XfdesktopIconView-cell-text-width-proportion:3.3;
}

Re: [SOLVED] Desktop Icons masked by panel

Thanks again ToZ, problem solved with -XfdesktopIconView-cell-padding:30;

Is there a way to get the icons with a different padding for x & y ? Because they are a bit to distant from the x with 30 but perfect for y.

Unfortunately, I can not find a way to get finer control.

Re: [SOLVED] Desktop Icons masked by panel

I'm not sure but I had the feeling that it has to do with the size of the cells but I don't remember how to control that.

Anyway, thanks for your help ToZ.
