How to Change the Taskbar in Puppy Linux


Users configure their computers to run the Linux operating system by installing specific distributions. Each Linux distribution includes a different set of commands and system utilities around the same standard Linux kernel. In particular, Puppy Linux is a lightweight distribution, well-suited to run on older hardware where newer distributions might be constrained by the lack of processor and storage resources. The ppp desktop includes a taskbar, located by default at the bottom edge of the screen. You can personalize the ppp taskbar by altering its configuration parameters.

  • Log into the computer in graphical mode. The JWM window manager will initialize and render your desktop, including the taskbar.

  • Click the "Menu" icon at the left end of the taskbar.

  • Select "Desktop," then select "Desktop settings." Click "Fbpanel configuration."

  • Click the radio button next to "Hide panel unless mouseover true" until it becomes selected if it was not selected, or not selected if it was selected. Click "OK." At that point, you will have changed the taskbar's behavior.
