have you tried, or are you using the manageDocks manageHook?http://xmonad.org/xmonad-docs/xmonad-co … Docks.html
So it turns out, I had xmonad.hs as ~/.xmonad.hs not ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs... Pretty embarassing. But I'll resist the temptation to delete the thread in hopes someone gets a chuckle out of it. In my defence, I did figure it out all on my own.
This is a modified xmonad.hs I got from the internet... it works, but the panel only gets shown after I open a program, and the gnome workspace switcher isn't aware of xmonad's workspaces.... ( What else am I missing from gnomeConfig, and how can I fix the issues ?
There is an old bug report with some workarounds here https://code.google.com/p/xmonad/issues/detail?id=200When I was using xmonad, SAL_USE_VCLPLUGIN=gen fixed it for me, but you lose your gtk-theme in libreoffice.
HiI am configuring my xmonad and I came across this link: http://www.haskell.org/wikiupload/6/63/And1_xmonad.pngI can't figure out how they got the slanted background for the different components (cpu, date, time etc.)Can anyone tell me how I can do this?
First off: are you sure you need it? Secondly, what you found there in your link is an extension which should come with the xmonad-contrib package. You don't paste that into your xmonad.hs.This should give you an idea of what you need to do.You should probably read up on XMonad in general though, to figure out how to configure xmonad properly.
