View Full Version : Customize xfce panels.

Hello,

I have successfully got xfce working in my appliance. Now I'm trying
to customize the default panel layout. When I setup the panels to my
preference in testdrive, and run sync, there are no file changes. There
are also no relevant files in ~/.config/xfce.

Could someone please tell me how I can achieve this? Thanks.

I am not sure if the default user gets its files from /etc/skel or not.
You might try copying the configuration to there. Someone more familiar
can tell me if I am wrong. I am newer to openSUSE.

Thanks, that's what I'm going to do once I have actually found where
the configuration files go. Does anyone know where xfce saves its
panel config? I have read that it's in ~/.config/xfce but the only
files in there are config files for the window manager.

If I remember correctly, the file change detection doesn't include the /
home path, so you may need to add that in order to have those changes
caught in testdrive - just add it when you scan for changes.

Try it in

Code:
--------------------
/home/your user/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml
--------------------

Thanks for the reply. There's only one file in that directory and
that's xfwm4.xml, which I've already changed to suit my window manager
preferences.
