Group same windows programs

Hi,

I am new using Crunchbang and I really like the OpenBox desktop, but, Can I make that differents windows of firefox (for example) stay in the task bar as one, which I can click and open a menu to choose what window I want?

Something like gnome does or Windows itself (like this http://area256.com/wp-content/gallery/s … kbarx0.jpg I haven't found any image better, sorry)

Thanks!

Re: Group same windows programs

dgz: If I understood correctly Frankicia did not want window tabbing but grouping in panel.

Frankicia: Answer is in your screenshot: use DockbarX or some other grouping panel instead of tint2.

Re: Group same windows programs

I am trying to install DockbarX but I can't do it from repos. Do you know if there is some repo that I can add to my sources.list?

thanks!

Have you read this?

DockbarX 0.90.3

INSTALL manually
Downlad dockbarx. Read up to date install instructions in the README file that comes with it.

Re: Group same windows programs

Obviously it's in the ubuntu ppa's, which you could use, but then there is a severe risk of crunch bang!

Have you tried docky?

I tried docky and I has window grouping, but u can't open a single window of a group, docky opens all the windows of the group (and I don't know if it can be changed)


Btw, I can't install dockbarx, it depens on python-gnomeapplet, but when I try to install it:
"E: Unable to locate package python-gnomeapplet"

and I don't know where to get it (in the instructions doesn't appear)

Search for python-gnomeapplet shows it is in the squeeze and sid repos

It's not like i dont want to install it:

root@crunchbang:/home/administrador# apt-get install python-gnomeapplet
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package python-gnomeapplet
root@crunchbang:/home/administrador# apt-cache search python-gnomeapplet
root@crunchbang:/home/administrador# 

Btw:

Plank has the same grouping, if I have differents instances of a same program, it opens ALL the windows when I click on their icon.

There is also magic right click on the icon, try it one day, you might get surprised.
