Freeing the desktop from wbar
« on: June 30, 2009, 10:34:54 AM »
Hi Robert!

I guess that it's you a should address in this matter. I have commented out wbar in .xsession and it works fine but if I change the background, wbar reappears again. Is there a way to prevent this? Many thanks for a splendid release of MC!

Have fun,
meo

For microcore, I will pull wbar and offer as an extension in the same fashion that jwm is.
For now, use the noicons boot option.

Hello again Robert!

Thanks for your reply. It works just fine although I have a pretty special setup with 12 boot options. That has made that some things just don't work like they should. So at times I have to come up with some special workaround to keep things like I want it. By the way, I should have remembered the solution you mentioned since you mentioned in the same thread that Jason W mentioned the option to comment out wbar but this day has been very poor healthwise. My head feels like aking mush and no good to remember things. Thanks again!

Have fun out there in cyberspace with MC and TC,

It is a boot time code. See FAQ http://www.tinycorelinux.com/faq.html#bootcodes

Hi Robert!

I fully agree that wbar should be pulled out of microcore and be replaced with an extension. I also have another suggestion. I would like to see the picture viewer to be pulled out of microcore also. I downloaded the extension of flpicsee that came up in the forum and I think it would be a better solution to have that one as an extension to. In any case microcore is superb and I appreciate it very much.

Have fun continuing the development of MC and TC,
