Mee, too... can´t be without it any more...

in fact, I made iconbar start automatically through the -loginrc, which raises a question:

how to avoid multiple instances of iconbar (interfering each other) when logged in as another user on the same desktop?

I've got a DCD and two monitors, whch appear as Channels 0 and 1.

What'd be useful is if, rather than having iconbar stuck on Channel 0, I could choose instead to have it centred on Channel 1 (which tends to be less crowded) or centred over the two.

(Apologies if this can already be done - a quick perusal of the manpage seemed to suggest not, but I could have missed something)

Infact, what'd be really great would be a "dualchannel" option, which would ensure that no icon was ever chopped in half over different monitors (by extending the bar off-centre when an odd number of icons are present) - and perhaps even by drawing an additional border down the centre of the bar, so that there's a break between the two screens. That'd look fantastic ;)

(Might it be possible to allow the iconbar to be dragged to any position on an edge of the root window, automatically detect where Channel boundaries lie, and add a border/break at that point? This sounds like a pretty major undertaking - but it sure would be cool!)

@edefault: I have the following line in my .sgisession (all one line)

Code: Select all

xset +fp /usr/freeware/share/emacs/fonts & /usr/nekoware/bin/iconbar & /usr/nekoware/bin/xscreensaver-command -exit; /usr/nekoware/bin/xscreensaver -nosplash


which avoids (I believe) the problem you're experiencing with .loginrc.

@stuart: I agree the dual channel needs a bit more work. I'm sure getting it to launch on channel 1 can be done fairly easily, and I'll look into it next week. What you suggest about display boundry smarts is also a great idea - now that I've got the channel size data using the SGI video extension ( v0.8 ) it should not be too serious an undertaking. I'll put it on the todo list.

And thanks to you both for the feedback. :)
