|hmm, first thing i see is that 60%/70% of the taskbar is dominated by buttons with text.|
| plz remove that text!|
No, don't! Most icons don't render cleanly enough to be included on the tray.
|text is for the menu, not for simple quickstart buttons.|
Change it in your own settings. I think it's better as a system default to make things as clear as possible. With trays usually 24 pixels or smaller, the icons just aren't clear enough for most (and especially new) users to sort out. Users are free to reconfigure to suit their own tastes and thresholds for bloat.
i've already changed it in my own settings ;)
but you're indeed right about the fact that it should be as clear as possible, but then give the user a simple way to get those buttons outta there. this brings me back to making a add-button-to-jwm-tray-in-lua-thingy, i was thinking of that earlier. would be a great learning process
and what you say about that the xpm's aren't rendered well (or something), thats rubbish. roberts even made the taskbar bigger, its now 38 at default (i changed it to 24 myself), so you can see the icons well enough
i was thinking, maybe we could set popup texts as default in stead of labels on the buttons itself. (you know, that yellow thingy that always pops up when u stay to long above something with your mouse.)
then the buttons will be smaller, and they will be clear
