I got fbpanel working in pdaxii13v2. Should I start a new thread, since this one is about documentation?
BTW the fbpanel attachment in the "New Announcements" thread has gone missing. (forum bug).

I renamed ~/.xinitrc to .xinitrc-old, then using rox, I dragged /usr/bin/fbpanel-session-rox to ~/ and renamed it .xinitrc
None of the shortcut buttons work, is that implemented differently in fbpanel? Shortcut buttons are 6th row, ie calendar, address, etc.



fbpanel has been updated to work with pdaXiiv2

what you need to do is relink ~/.xinitrc to /usr/bin/fbpanel-session
if you want it to use rox instead of matchbox desktop, create a file called ~/.fbpanel/use_rox (assuming you actually got rox installed)

all the shortcut keys are controlled by openbox so if you upgraded to some unsupported version of openbox, then you would had lost all your shortcut keys...

I tried the updated fbpanel. It's fbpanel 4.3-3 from pdaxii13v2 feed
I have rox and depends fully installed. (that's the first thing I do when reflashing pdaxii13 akita)
I have reflashed since I tried the openbox version in the "New Packages" thread
The version of openbox I have is 3.4.4-2 (pdaxii13v2 upgrade, upgraded this).
I relinked ~/.xinitrc to /usr/bin/fbpanel-session and created the file ~/.fbpanel/use_rox
When I restarted X, all I had was a gray screen with my home folder, and no taskbar, so I couldn't access any programs.
None of the 4 (6th row) buttons worked. (calendar, address, mail, menu)
I set everything back to what I had before and now my menu button doesn't open the "start" menu.

Edit
I think some of my small problems are a result of using pdaxii13-akita and trying to upgrade pdaxii13v2 and the newer packages.
Meanie mentioned in the pdaxii13v2 upgrade thread, that there is no pdaxii13v2 base, and only the full version has been tested.
This is probably the reason I am having to find dependencies for certain packages manually, and why "some" packages don't work correctly..

I fixed my menu button. smile.gif I edited ~/config/openbox/rc.xml
It seems that a dependency of fbpanel 4.3-3 is causing a re-write to "rc.xml"
The dependency is mouseclick. Look at the below lines in rc.xml.
The first one is a copy that I extracted from spitz-full (hdimage-full.tgz)
The second one is what my "rc.xml" looked like after I restored my setup back to matchbox, after installing fbpanel 4.3-3 and mouseclick.
CODE
  <keybind key="XF86Start">
    <action name="Execute"><execute>mb-start-button</execute></action>

  <keybind key="XF86Start">
    <action name="Execute"><execute>mouseclick 0 480n</execute></action>

I had released the version 4.12 at:
http://www.oesf.org/forum/index.php?showto...8415&st=420

But menu postion is not correct when screen rotated.
I had modified the function called menu_pos in misc.c, and the menu position is really changed, but the size of rox's desktop is not changed.

It really confuse me, is it a problem of rox/openbox/fbpanel?

makefbmenu is in svn. I have updated it so it ignores certain desktop files like reboot and exit so they don't appear as duplicated.


new makefbmenu source based on SVN version, perfect fbpanel menu get from .desktop.

fbpanel 4.12 has been updated as following.
