From bad sector@21:1/5 to All on Tue Jun 7 15:37:54 2016
I found a workaround to temporarily resolve the
issues arising with the use of vertical panels
on the sides and the insane expanding icons.
Gadgets like the pager, the systray and time/date
require a minimum of 90 pixels for me, but
providing that many leaves room for only a few
By using several panels the problem's severity is
reduced. I'd still want to see 90 pixels on each
side with the smaller (normal) icons in double rows
but I can't even park two narrower panels side-by-side.
Another associated problem is that a menu placed
on the right panel cascades back and forth L/R.
Finally custom icons need to be first created
using ApplicationMenu settings, then the canned
ones need to be removed before the custom icon
bearing entry is 'Add'-ed to panel. Else the change
may never take hold.
