"On Desktop" setting + Ubuntu 7 Years, 2 Months ago  
Hi there,

I'm a longtime windows rainlendar user who recently switched to linux. I'm running the most recent Ubuntu release (7.04).

I've imported all my to-do's and dates from windows and setup rainlendar to run on startup, but there is one thing that I can't seem to figure out: I can't get the "On Desktop" setting to work. In fact, Options/Position/OnDesktop is greyed out and cannot be selected. Is it possible to enable the "On Desktop" setting?

Thanks in advance for any help, suggestions and your patience! I searched the forums before asking, so hopefully I didn't miss anything. Cheers!

The &quot;On Desktop&quot; hasn't been implemented in Linux. Are there any applications that have such feature (i.e. is it even possible to do)?

I'm not sure. I haven't encountered any programs in Ubuntu that have this feature, but as I said I am a noob.

Thanks for the reply!

Yes there is one =&gt; GDesklets


Isnt Rainlendar receiving an event if it gets minimized?
If so you can maximize if this event occurs or not?

This would not be nice, but solves the problem.



//edit:
I got a workaround. I think you could change the programm so the workaround isn't needed and the on Desktop Support will work.

I used the Tool Devilspie to change the window type of Rainlendar. You can find a Description here:
wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Devilspie

This Script would do the work:
(if
(and
(is (application_name) &quot;rainlendar2&quot;)
(or
(contains (window_name) &quot;Todo List&quot;)
(contains (window_name) &quot;Event List&quot;)
(contains (window_name) &quot;Calendar&quot;)
)
)
(wintype &quot;dock&quot;)
)

So i guess, that if you would change the WindowType in Rainlendar to &quot;dock&quot; it would work without that hack.

Thanks a lot!

I just tried it and it works flawless. For some skins one may need to adjust the window names thought.

Would be awesome if this kind of &quot;docking&quot; behaviour would be implemented in future Rainlendar versions, so it won't need Devilspie to work (Devilspie won't work in combination with Compiz or Beryl).
