gnome-panel 2.9.92
Posted on: 03/01/2005 09:26 AM

GNOME panel is, well, the panel in GNOME. You know, the bar you see at the top and at the bottom of your desktop, with menus and lots of applets on it. That's it. That's the panel.

Since gnome-panel 2.9.2, the gnome-panel use the /apps/panel gconf directory to store its settings. The settings that were previously stored in /apps/panel/profiles will be automatically migrated. Since gnome-panel 2.9.2 also, the panel depends on gnome-menus and we should finally enjoy the Desktop Menu Specification. If you don't see any items in the menus, then you probably forgot to set $XDG_CONFIG_DIRS to $(sysconfdir)/xdg
