change panel’s layer in LXQT

The previous article (lubuntu’s panel keeps in top of all windows) explains how to restrain LXDE’s panel in the bottom layer by editing lxde-rc.xml. A similar method is available in LXQT. The only difference is the ‘name’ property of the ‘application’ tag.

Comment information at the start of application part explained how to find applications’ name property. You can get a window’s properties by running xprop, the first element of window’s WM_CLASS property is what you need. As for panels in LXQT this value is ‘lxqt-panel’. So the entire config information is as follows:


<application name="lxqt-panel" >
<layer>below</layer>
</application>
