    Hi,

    Openbox3 + pypanel+idesk+xdaliclock+torsmo+Esetroot.

    within a desktop, open say about 30 odd xterms. That seems to crash/hang pypanel. Not sure how to recover it except by kill -9. Even switching desktops does not help.

    also, is there a way to change the pixmap of xterm icon, emacs icons, etc (no, i read abt the xbm. that no color. An eyecandy panel deserves an eye candy icon (read lilac) )

    thanks,
    Kiran.

      That's a lot of xterms, have you considered mrxvt (multi-tab rxvt) or were you just trying to crash pypanel ;)

      I'll see if there's anything I can do about that ..

      As for apps with no default icon, I'm not sure how to assign them anything but an XBM.  Getting pypanel to display custom images for certain application types might be a good feature to add, it's something that keeps coming up ..

      Thanks. For the reply and for pypanel!

      i sometime run sims on like 100 machines that are not running mosix. to monitor them i setup many xterms, to simulaneously see results :( so, mrxvt might be pushing it

      also, i have setup a patch on
      http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-318810-highlight-openbox+icon.html

      to set icons for paricular applications. i have 2 problems with my patch

      1. i dont know python and hence am brute forcing the ppicon.
      2. it crashes after 40-50 refreshes. so not for regular use.

      thanks,
      Kiran.
