Thread: XFCE Vertical Panel Icons

  1. #1

    Default XFCE Vertical Panel Icons

    I am using 12.2 and XFCE4. I have a vertical panel and a top horizontal panel, both with workspace switchers. The vertical panel workspace switcher does not diaplay application icons while the horizontal one does. I have used this same setup with Ubuntu and Debian, and had application icons in the vertical panel switchers in both.

    Does anyone know how I can set up the vertical panel so the application icons show?

    Any and all help appreciated.

    Thanks

    Have you added task manager widget to that panel??

    No, I haven't. I just looked at the items available for the panel and Task Manager wasn't there, Window Buttons was. Is that the same thing?

    What would a Task Manager have to do with application icons showing in the Workspace Switcher?

    I didn't see any suggestions for having application icons show in the workspace switcher in a vertical panel.

    You got a reply about the task manager from gogalthorp. You said there
    was no such thing. gogalthorp said that was the kde name. I said the
    xfce name is Workspace switcher.

    To this point, you have not replied to that, saying if it is what you
    are looking for, or if it does not work. Ie, you got a suggestion, but
    you did not comment on it. If you say that suggestion is wrong, and
    explain why, and explain again what is it you seek, then people may
    think about something else. Ok? :-)

    From my original post: "I have a vertical panel and a top horizontal panel, both with workspace switchers."

    I am looking for a reason that applications icons are not appearing in the workspace switcher in my vertical panel when they do in my horizontal switcher.

    If you have some suggestions as to why the applications icons are not appearing in the Workspace Switcher, I'd appreciate you sharing.
