Yeah...it is silly though; just changed it in svn.
Bah, but in this case, using god-mode kills(*) my classic panel
so it's at least a little bit misleading, don't you think?
It shouldn't overwrite the existing config; the code just adds new panel
configuration to GConf, then changes the default, effectively.
(*): It did that the last time I tried it out and I probably
it out again unless somebody vouchsafes for it not treading over my
carefully crafted configuration again. If you want me to try something
out, I want to be sure that I can easily go back to what I had before if
I don't like it(**).
"god-mode 0" should have reverted to the old config; however
bonobo-activation-server sometimes locks up during panel changes, and so
you may have to restart the session (and killall
(**): The benefit of the Bigboard menu learning what applications I
to use is much outweighed by its eating a good share of my screen real
Well, we have the "Minimize to panel" option, but it's not a very good
solution yet. We'd talked about a design where it would minimize very
small, then slide out on top of apps, then go back when you launch an
app or something else.
Be my heroes and tell me that my concerns will be addressed in the
