Thread: Customize xfce panels.

    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.
