Panel width is reset and not read from config on boot

Postby vangop » Mon Jun 01, 2015 4:59 am

Hi!
I'm using only the panel only as a tray (because It lacks a proper drag/drop functionality). I've set it up in the lower left corner, adjusted the size. But each time I boot the panel width is reset to 150, and I have to manually set it each time.
What am I doing wrong?

Hi vangop. It's a bug in lxpanel 0.8.1 https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugrepo ... bug=784725

I had the same problem, then re-installed lxpanel 0.7.2. and everything is OK.

After I installed 0.7.2, I blocked the update so I wouldn't get 0.8.1 again until I know for sure the bug is fixed.

Code: Select all

apt-mark hold lxpanel lxpanel-data


After it is fixed, just release the hold on lxpanel:

Code: Select all

apt-mark unhold lxpanel lxpanel-data

Thanks a lot for pointing this. Will either downgrade or try some other panel like xfce.

If you just want a tray, just install a tray - much lower resource use. Docker and wmsystemtray are two nice lightweight trays that work well with openbox. See http://lxlinux.com/dock.html for more information.

Indeed will try, I'm using only weather and battery applets besides the tray icons.
