Running a brand-new install of BrowserLinux on my eeePC 701.

I tried to add the virtual desktop displays by usng the JWM Configuration Manager. Nothing changed, even though I clicked the "Restart JWM" button.

I also selected Autohide to "On", and that's when the taskbar disappeared Sad
I have no tray icons, only the right-click menu is working.

How can I get my taskbar back?

hi jeff,

1. test config.
-open a terminal
Code:
jwm -p

this will show you, if you got errors in your config-files.

2. editing tray-config
open rox. open /root/.jwmrc-tray as text.
the line to look is
Code:
  <Tray  autohide="true" x="0" y="0" height="40" halign="center">

set autohide to false. save. restart jwm.

3. recover original tray-config
- backup /root/.jwmrc-tray
- copy /initrd/pup_ro2/root/.jwmrc-tray to /root/.jwmrc-tray
- restart jwm
this should give you the original tray back.

hope this helps.

aragon

Thank you for the helpful reply, aragon.

1. jwm -p gives "Segmentation Fault"
What does that mean? Just a corrupted file, I hope. Everything else is working fine.

2. /root/.jwmrc-tray and /root/.jwmrc-tray.bak are blank - 0 bytes.

3. /initrd.gz exists. I copied it to a new folder, extracted initrd from it, tried to open it as text, but it is just 0s and 1s.

Is there any other way to restore the orginal jwmrc-tray?

- Jeff

Look if you have hidden file /root/.jwmrc-tray.bak, if so, you copy it as /root/.jwmrc-tray, then restart X

I appreciate your help, trio. But as I said in my previous post, BOTH /root/.jwmrc-tray and /root/.jwmrc-tray.bak are blank - 0 bytes.

Awesome! That worked beautifully, thanks, trio!

Now, do I dare try to set autohide = true?

hi,
I think you do this better manually like mentioned above:


open /root/.jwmrc-tray as text.

in the line:
<Tray autohide="false" ....blablabla
change to:
<Tray autohide="true" ....blablabla

In my opinion, BrowserLinux is very nice puplet but it doesnt like if you mix in JWM Configuration Manager
