Re: Crunchbang/Fluxbox

Hi. I hope it's correct to attach my flubox question to this thread.

Following the instructions in the beginning of this thread i managed to get a nice, working setup rebuilding/copying the crunchbang settings (but with a rolling release based on siduction. Anyway ... if you'd like i could paste a screenshot).

My question now is: How do i manage the settings (in /home/$User/.fluxbox/init i presume) to get in the toolbar (iconbar) all 4 workingspaces present, but separated and  *showing* the numbers - but not the word "workspace", i.e. 1 thru 4 (i saw in an example of vrkalak a similar setup)?  In that way i'd have a perfect overview which programs are running and in which workspace.

Actually my setting is that minimized windows got to all (which also shows in a glance all minimized windows but not in which workspace they are sitting).

Thanks a lot in advance for any help!

Re: Crunchbang/Fluxbox

To rename your workspaces, look for this line in the $HOME/.fluxbox/init file -

session.screen0.workspaceNames:	1 , 2 ,

comma separated list of names.

if you want to see all the open windows on all your spaces, look for this line:

session.screen0.iconbar.mode:	{static groups} (workspace)

and change to:

session.screen0.iconbar.mode:	{static groups}

You can usually find these options in the: Fluxbox Menu > Configure >
You can then select Workspaces to rename them, or Toolbar > IconBar Mode for the iconbar.

I'm not aware of a way to show multiple workspaces on the native fluxbox toolbar - you may have been looking at fluxbox using tint2 as the toolbar.

Ah, ok i understand. That's possible ...

As for the rest, thanks a lot for the suggestions.

Renaming "workspace 1" to "1" does not make so much sense (at least for me).

If i set

session.screen0.iconbar.mode:	{static groups} (workspace)

to

session.screen0.iconbar.mode:	{static groups}

(1) the topmost window (the active one) is not anymore highlighted. I used this setting but in the end it was not really so useful.

Sincerely, i hoped in some trick to be able to have in the (fluxbox) panel all 4 workspaces with the respective windows in them.

In any case, the longer i work with fluxbox the more i discover its intrinsecal power big_smile

1) This can be done also in the (rightclick) Fluxbox menu > Configuration > Toolbar > Iconbar , isn't it?

Yes. Most of what you're trying to do is accessible from the fluxbox configuration menus.
