I am using
fbpanel in openbox. I have 3 monitors: One in the middle, and two on each side.
fbpanel is spread along all 3 monitors.
Can I configure
fbpanel to only appear on one monitor (monitor 1) ?

It's not possible to put
fbpanel on only one monitor by default but
it's possible to do that using
-x option that is added by this
patch. After applying this it you can use
-x <MONITOR_NUMBER to display
fbpanel on a given monitor, for example:
$ ./panel/fbpanel -x 1
I tried and it works on my Slackware 14.2 with Fluxbox.
As correctly noted by OP in the comments below this patch cannot be
cleanly applied onto current stable version of
menu_pos() function changed. Instead of looking
for the differences I replaced current implementation of
with the implementation from the patch I linked above. To try it:
$ git clone https://github.com/ardrabczyk/fbpanel $ cd fbpanel $ git checkout xinerama-support
Then build and optionally install normally.
To apply patches to the Debian package build system:
$ cd debian/patches $ wget http://drabczyk.org/xinerama-support.patch $ echo xinerama-support.patch >> series $ cd - $ dpkg-buildpackage
gpg: skipped "Ulises Vitulli <firstname.lastname@example.org>": No secret key gpg: dpkg-sign.WfacYo70/fbpanel_7.0-3.dsc: clear-sign failed: No secret key dpkg-buildpackage: error: failed to sign .dsc file
but apart from that building succeeds. Install package:
sudo dpkg -i ../fbpanel_7.0-3_amd64.deb
(I guess that
amd64 might be different on non x86-64 machines).
