桌面栏是默认放置在屏幕右上角的小面板,类似于 windows 的带着开始菜单的任务栏。它包含了桌面栏菜单,通过它您可以启动应用程序和首选项,时钟托盘和其他系统工具,以及底部运行中的程序列表。


You can move the Deskbar to any corner or as a bar along the upper or lower border of the screen by gripping the knobbly area on one side of the tray (see arrows above) and drag & drop it into the new position.
You can also fold it into a more compact layout by drag & dropping the knobbly area onto Deskbar's Leaf menu. Being only the height of a regular window tab, even windows that take up the whole screen won't obscure the Deskbar tray with its clock and icons.

By gripping the other knobbly widget of the tray, you can change the width of the Deskbar by dragging the mouse left or right:


A wider Deskbar allows for more icons in the tray on a single row. It also truncates longer application names in the list of running programs less often, especially if you use larger icons.

While the first couple of menu items of the Deskbar are fixed, you can customized the ones below Shutdown....
Here you can set the number of recent documents, folders and applications that are shown in their menu in the Deskbar, or if you want to see them at all.
The button Edit in Tracker... opens the folder ~/config/settings/deskbar/menu/. In it you'll find the files and folders that appear in the Deskbar, by default these are Applications, Demos, Deskbar applets, and Preferences.
You can delete or add entries like links to applications, documents or even queries by simply copying/deleting them to/from this folder.

Programs installed from a package automatically put an entry into the Deskbar. Depending on the number of packages you have installed, this can become a bit crowded. If you prefer to have total control, and only want to see applications you link there yourself (possibly in categorizing sub-folders), here's how to do it:
You create a link of the menu folder in ~/config/settings/deskbar/ and rename to menu_entries. From Terminal that is achieved with:

ln -s ~/config/settings/deskbar/menu ~/config/settings/deskbar/menu_entries



置顶 桌面栏位于所有窗口之上。
自动提升 The Deskbar pops to the front when the mouse pointer touches where the Deskbar meets the screen edge, and is lowered when it leaves the Deskbar area.
自动隐藏 桌面栏自动隐藏,受到鼠标点击则弹出。

index 系统托盘


在其他方面,系统托盘可以停靠时钟。在其上悬停鼠标将会在工具提示中显示当前日期。左键点击用于切换时间和日期,右键点击用于显示/隐藏时钟,或者启动 时间 首选项对其进行相关设置。

任何程序都可以在系统托盘上安装图标,从而为用户提供一个接口。 例如,当您有未读邮件时,邮件系统将会显示一个不同的标志,提供一个右键菜单用于创建或者检查新邮件。进程控制器也是个典型的例子,它同样在系统托盘中使用自己的图标来显示相关信息(CPU/内存的使用情况),并且还提供了右键菜单用于相关的操作。

index 运行程序


You can change to a specific running application by clicking on its entry in the Deskbar and choosing (one of) its windows from the submenu. By right-clicking you can Hide/Show all windows or Close all and with them the entire application.

A SHIFT CTRL click on an application hides all its windows, a CTRL click shows them again.

When using the "expander" setting to show all windows of an application, you can middle-click on a window or app to start a new instance. For example, middle-clicking a running StyledEdit will open a new document window.
Maybe more useful: while holding SHIFT, a middle-click on a window closes it. Handy when you'd like to close some of many open Tracker windows, for example.

Sometimes an application may hang and even though all its windows are gone, the entry in the list of running applications in the Deskbar just won't disappear. In such a situation you use the Vulcan Death Grip to get rid of it: hold SHIFT CTRL ALT and click on the offending entry in the Deskbar. Fascinating!
