RE: problem with ROX-Filer fixed?
by Jasper on Mon 1st Nov 2004 19:31 UTC

Both ROX and xfdesktop (and GNOME, and KDE) use a fullscreen window as desktop background.

Not true. Rox doesn't use a fullscreen window for the pinboard any more. It did ages ago, but that's history. I've used it with Openbox's, WindowMaker's and a few other WMs' root menus and it works just great.

Sure it does. It forwards events to the X root window, which are picked up by the window managers you mention.

Xfce is designed differently, using xfdesktop and a fullscreen desktop window and as a consequence what you want can not work for Xfce. Sorry.
