It doesn't really...seamlessly integrate? The window just sort of maximizes itself. It's still clearly running in a window, any tips?

Do you mean you want fullscreen mode? or would you like it to be displayed as one face of your desktop cube maybe?

Well what I gathered from a screenshot in the tutorial I was reading is your startbar would be displayed on your desktop and any applications you open from it. I'm not too familiar with the cube, but that is def. a viable solution.

I think what I'm wanting is my windows taskbar to be displayed at all times.

Pressing 'host-key' + L should do that. Pressing that again should switch back to windowed mode. 'host-key' + F does the same for full screen.

Yes, that's true. CTRL+L works perfectly until I click on something else, i.e.

I'm chatting with Digsby in my XP environment. On my Linux taskbar "Sean [Running]" is the active window. Let's say I have an instance of FireFox open on my Linux desktop. Clicking on that will open up firefox and cover up my start bar and any windows app I had open until I click on "Sean [Running]" again. Any way to work around this?
