View Full Version : [xubuntu] xfce 4.8 xubuntu 11.04:windows restricted by panels' space

December 31st, 2011, 11:13 PM
I have been using xfce 4.8 xubuntu 11.04 and been quite pleased by the appearances and possibilities of the desktop environment.
However, I am annoyed by the fact that windows are restricted by the space occupied by panels. As one can play with the enter and leave opacity (transparency) of the panels, I wonder why the opened windows could not go over or under the panels.
I have been looking around (googling and specific forums search) and found no instructions to resolve the problem. Is there any strategy to permit overlapping of windows and panels?

I swear I saw an option for this somewhere....unfortunately, I might have been confusing it with KDE (I just did the desktop environment merry-go-round)

A temporary solution might be to enable auto-hiding. I'm not sure if that will accomplish what you want, but auto-hidden panels can have windows under them.

That is not exactly what I was looking for.

Nonetheless, thanks.:)
