I want to create kiosk using GNU/Linux. I need to show GUI one application full screen.
I've found that
ratpoison suits my needs. But I also want to allow user to see and change keyboard layout and display digital clock on a panel. It's clear that I don't need all 1280 horizontal pixels to display this information. My full screen application has main menu and it would be great to use empty space on the right to overlay it with the panel.
I've achieved that with those lines in
panel_position = top right horizontal panel_size = 150 24 strut_policy = none panel_layer = top
It works well with a "normal" WM (like
kwin), but I cannot get the same result with a tile WM (I suppose it's easier to strengthen simple tile WM than a "normal" one). I've already tried
How can I achieve my goal? I can easily change WM or panel to a different one.
