fluxbox iconbar

Recommended Posts

One complaint I have about Fluxbox: The list of windows on the iconbar is arranged by the order in which each window was opened. The window buttons on the iconbar can't be rearranged, as far as I can tell (if anyone knows differently, please leet me know!).

 

I like to have windows open on different workspaces, and I want the windows on Workspace 1 to be listed before (to the left of) the windows on Workspace 2, for example.

 

I found an old feature request here: https://sourceforge.net/p/fluxbox/feature-requests/94/

 

But they got the terminolgy wrong. "Rearrange toolbar buttons order" should have been "Rearrange iconbar buttons order", or "Rearrange iconbar window list order", according to how those things are named in man fluxbox.

I am the same way.  Which is why I disable the fluxbox taskbar and use Tint2 instead.  FWIW...

I've been doing the same thing, but I'm playing around with a new Fluxbox setup and haven't disabled the toolbar and installed tint2 (yet).

So that this wouldn't annoy me anymore, I switched the iconbar mode to show windows from the current workspace only. I can use the middle mouse-click on the desktop to bring up the Workspace menu. Showing KDE apps running here on Workspace 2:

Maybe someday that feature request will be taken care of!

I wouldn't hold my breath. I don't think much has changed with Fluxbox since I used it 15 years ago. Actually it hasn't been updated in 5 years.
