View Full Version : [gnome] Customizing the bottom panel

Help wanted...

In an attempt to try something other than AWN, I'm trying to configure the bottom panel but I'm still stumbling upon some problems:

1. When I uncheck 'Expand' the bar shrinks and nasty rectangles appear on each side of the bar. I wouldn't mind if they were transparent but they aren't. Are there any ways to remove these? (gconf-editor, config file)

2. When using the 'Window List' applet, I was wondering if there is a way to show only the icons and not the text in the little rectangles.

Thanks for your help.
