Mac OS X style app bar on crunchbang

Hi I am a newbie to crunchbang. I have seen several xfce4-panel desktops in crunchbang on the internet. I was wondering how I can do this. Please go step by step if you have an answer.

Re: Mac OS X style app bar on crunchbang

[Alt +F2 ] type in

xfce4-panel

That will start it....

Edit the Openbox autostart file and add:

xfce4-panel &

Then it will start when you boot up.

a friendly welcome to you!

but.

have you seen this?

of course you can still install crunchbang, but:

  • either you'll be running a debian oldstable release, and no updates ever whatsoever anymore for all crunchbang packages, plus you probably have to comment them out of /etc/apt/sources.list to avoid errors

  • or you have to transform your crunchbang into a current debian install, or bunsenlab. howto's here on the forums.

Be sure to remove the tint2 line from ~/.config/openbox/autostart when you add the xfce4-panel line wink

You have a browser obviously, so you have a search box. Type in "xfce4-panel configure" and get "This manual should provide you with all necessary information on how to adjust the panel to your liking"

You have to do some work yourself  roll

Do you mean something like Plank or Docky or Wbar instead of xfce4-panel? This can be done with tint2.
