    What about ibox or whatever it's called? I think it's integrated to e16 (and module in e17).

    I can't seem to find this "ibox" in Enlightenment.

    It's named ibox in e17, can't remember the name in e16... It's generally a small box, sitting in a corner with icons for different minimized apps.

    Just found a shot on enlightenment.org: http://enlightenment.org/Enlightenme...s/E_DR16-8.jpg

    See down in right corner.

    This is what I am looking for.

    The iconbox just has an icon of an already running program.
    What I need is a Taskbar which I can launch programs from.

    Oh, I thought you meant a taskbar = switching between running apps. What you meant is what I call a "dock" :P

    Dunno what's the right definision of what however

    Have you looked at http://user.it.uu.se/~adavid/utils/F...cher_help.html ?

    You can also use superkaramba, gdesklets or the imlib2 based adesklets.

    It's also fully possible to use idesk to configure something similar...

    Have you checked out engage? I use e16, but without any taskbar or anything, I've gotten used to running everything from the menu. Elive, the enlightenment live cd uses engage I believe, and it looks pretty cool.

    That is exactly what I am looking for, thank you.

    Hmm... another thing I've just come across is idesk (though it might not be exactly what you're looking for, it looks very configurable). I came across it in the Gentoo docs, when I was installing and setting up fluxbox. Here's a link:
