Configuring Panels
JWM (default for Puppy4 and Slacko) configure from the Menu option-
  • Menu > Desktop > JWM configuration
  • Then clicking on 'Tray Management'.

OpenBox (default for Lucid) configure from the Menu option-
  • Menu > Desktop > OpenBox configuration
  • Then clicking on tab 'Dock'.
  • Additionally, see the FbPanel configuration from the same submenu.
