Graphical layers configuration do not stick after reboot

Sat Feb 08, 2020 4:37 pm

Hello, for those that dont get what I mean with the title, if you use right click on an application you will see the option layers. You can put the window of the application always on top, bottom or normal.

So I put lxpanel always on top but after a reboot its back to normal. How to make the changes permanent?

This can be done in the openbox XML config files. Which application are you trying to permanently set as always on top?

Thanks for the reply. I want to have Chromium always at the bottom.

OK...

If you are using the default Raspbian PIXEL desktop environment, then the following should work...

1. Copy the default Raspbian PIXEL Openbox XML config to your home directory.

Code: Select all

i@raspberrypi:~ $ cp /etc/xdg/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml ~/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml
2. Edit the copy to add an application configuration for chromium-browser.

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ nano ~/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml

Code: Select all

  <applications>
  	<application name="panel">
	<skip_taskbar>yes</skip_taskbar>
	<layer>above</layer>
	</application>
	<application name="panel" type="dock">
	<layer>below</layer>
	</application>
	<application name="chromium-browser">
	<layer>above</layer>
	</application>
  
    <!--
  # this is an example with comments through out. use these to make your
  # own rules, but without the comments of course.
This command just shows how the contents of the file should look after you have edited it:

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cat ~/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Re: Graphical layers configuration do not stick after reboot

@ktb

Thanks alot you fixed 2 problems at the same time haha. The chromium browser layer and the problem I was having where the taskbar didn't pop up from below because the windows covered it. I just edited

Code: Select all

	<application name="panel" type="dock">
	<layer>below</layer>
	</application>
to

Code: Select all

	<application name="panel" type="dock">
	<layer>above</layer>
	</application>
I had given up on fixing that as I saw some threads about it but no working answers. Now I can help those others like this one

Hi, I saw your comment on this thread:
viewtopic.php?t=221096

I'm having the same problem with the taskbar but don't really know how to actually do the fix correctly as i'm relatively new to Linux and RP OS. Hope you could help.

Thank you in advance.

OK...

If you are using the default Raspbian PIXEL desktop environment, then the following should work...

1. Copy the default Raspbian PIXEL Openbox XML config to your home directory.

Code: Select all

i@raspberrypi:~ $ cp /etc/xdg/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml ~/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml
Hi, unable to copy it, please advise. Thank you in advance.

Below is the error:

Code: Select all

cp: cannot create regular file '/home/pi/.config/openbox/lxde-pi-rc.xml': No such file or directory
