[SOLVED] Skel messed up plank and xfce settings

Post by Alwayslearning »

I'm not sure what happened, when I did a skel after reboot, I have to go throw my menu to pull up my plank every time I reboot for my plank to come up, also I cant change the colors on the icons anymore. It was fine till I did a skel now I'm not sure how to fix. Any suggestions please? Desktop is openbox.

Openbox has a configuration file.

Open ~/.config/openbox/autostart.

It is as the name suggests.

Openbox will autostart anything in there.

I have made the decision to NOT autostart plank by default on Openbox anymore.

So the new code (my decision) is in /etc/skel - I never touch your directories.

Code: Select all

#(plank) &
Delete the # and it will autostart again.

But when you type "skel" you will copy/paste my code to your home directories and it will also make a backup of your .config so you can always go back to the state you were in by comparing folders with meld.

Colors of the icons... not sure what you mean there. An image will explain it better.

Awesome that worked for the plank as for the colors its the xfce4 icon sardi appearance. Can't change any.

not clear what your issue is.

you just change the icons with lxappearance and the xfce appearance app
