Fix for overlapping icons

June 09, 2008 — BarryK
There are reports of overlapping drive icons in 4.1alpha2.

Testing on my relative's PC I was getting this. It happens at certain screen resolutions. My relative's PC is running at 800x600, and it also has the problem of the text underneath the icon being obscured partly by the tray.

I have fixed both problems by changing ROX-Filer's default pinboard positioning granularity from 'coarse' to 'fine', which is from 32 pixels to 2 pixels.

Extra note:


Icons in taskbar

I know that it was an experiment in Alpha 1 to have the icons in the taskbar. Would it be possible to have both with a GUI to switch. (Or at least have the code to do it). Having any icon come up when inserting a device is great, but the taskbar is always visible vs the desktop. P.S. My 15 partitions did not play nice with the earlier HotPup (read: lots of icons - lol) JB
