    Openbox Dock


    Hey all. I've switched to Openbox recently (I LOVE it), but I've got a question with configuring my dock.

    In my rc.xml, I found the following section:
    Code:
    <dock>
      <position>TopLeft</position>
      <stacking>Top</stacking>
      <direction>Vertical</direction>
      <floatingX>0</floatingX>
      <floatingY>0</floatingY>
      <autoHide>yes</autoHide>
      <hideDelay>300</hideDelay>
      <moveButton>A-Left</moveButton>
    </dock>
    Now, I want my dock in the bottom right corner. So naturally, I changed the position tag to "BottomRight". However, even after running Reconfigure, this didn't fix my Dock (my "wmxkb -wmode docked" command still put it in the upper-left).

    And for the record, "DownRight" doesn't work either.

    Since the Openbox site has almost no documentation on this file, how can I change my dock location?

    I'm running openbox atm too

    I'm not using any dockapps atm, but according to obconf, the dock can be placed in the "Bottom Right", try that

    Yeah, try obconf to configure and see what it puts into rc.xml. That's how I got my dock working how I wanted.
