    I downloaded and installed the latest pypanel (2.2) but get the same problem with xfce 4.2 -- I get pypanel only on one desktop. Is there a fix?

    I took out all the 'special case' handling code in 2.2 but it looks like XFWM4 still has issues with _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DOCK.  To get around it, comment out the code that sets the pypanel DOCK property in the setProps method -

    win.change_property(dsp.intern_atom("_NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE"), Xatom.ATOM, 32, [dsp.intern_atom("_NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DOCK")])

    Thanks, that fixed the problem. Also, is there a way to display all the desktops and highlight the current one, in a similar fashion as with applications?

    Unfortunately, there's no way to do that right now.  At some point I would like to try and add some type of pager though ..

    I have seen screenshots where folks use a standalone pager (eg. fbpager) and place it up next to pypanel.  That may be a solution for you?
