I love XFCE. I have three questions though:
1st) I am trying to add some launchers to the bottom and was wondering if people knew any good ways to find icons? Some (gaim and xscreensaver) put there icons in /usr/share/pixmaps which is nice. Others like, firefox, bluefish, xmms ect I can't find anywhere? Were they somewhere else or do I have to go online and try to find them?
2nd) Does anyone know of it's possible to get a program to not show up on the taskbar? I am using a really small monitor so things like XMMS take up space.
3nd) How do you change defaults? If I try to open a url it tries to load mozilla.
1. Not sure how this works, but when I type "firefox" in the icon name field, it somehow discovers it and displays it there. This works both in the panel and the menu. I only have 2 or 3 icons that don't show up this way.
3. Set the BROWSER variable to your favourite browser
1) I remember seeing Icons also listed in the share folder of gnome. I think it's something like /opt/gnome/share/icons/48x48? or something like that. you could always download icon packs from art.gnome.org and put them in your ~/.icons directory and tell xfce to load them directly from there.
2) don't really know. I've always used the iconbox and liked it. but don't how effective it is on a small screen. also, you could open things in a different workspace and tell the taskbar to show things only from that particular workspace. this way you can put the things you don't want to interact with constantly in a different workspace and have them going in the background while you work.
Thanks for the quick responses both of you. I don't understand the ""export BROWSER=mozilla-firefox"" part though, where do I put that?
append it to your ".bashrc" file in your home directory.
I have been looking for icons as well, and depending on what you have installed, these are places to look:
XFCE4 icons: /opt/xfce4/share/icons
