It is also a very flexible little application. all of the icons are "single click" so you can quickly get to what you want. Additonally, you can drag the icons around to move them where you want, resize the window, reposition it, and when you close and reopen it, it will remember all the things you did.
Additionally you can drag and drop icons from your desktop to the configure panel and it will automagically create them there for you! Give it a second or two (depending on the speed of your machine) after you drag and drop, and they will appear!
Lastly, if you would like, you can edit any of the shortcuts in configure by simply right clicking on them, or create a new one of your own by right clicking on any open space. You can specify what to execute, the icon, the text, and even to close the configure panel after it launches.
Please remember this is a version 1 utility, and I have many plans to improve it and add other neat things for future releases. The good news is wattOS has its own software repository now, so you will be able to update via the software package management software when updates become available.
I am not the original author of the program. I took an existing excellent utility written by the same author that wrote fotoxx - Michael Cornelison. He made an outstandling little program called MyStuff. I edited the source, changed a few settings, setup the default icons and things I thought would be helpful for all specific to wattOS, repackaged as a .deb and made it available to wattOS in a software repository. It is a free open source GPL piece of software, so we all benefit from work on it. Be sure to drop Michael a thanks, and his email address is available on his web site.
http://kornelix.squarespace.com/ - So thank you to Michael for his excellent work, I plan on continuing development now of this utility I have called "configure" and will add things / change things, etc. that you the community would like to see. I thought it would be a great way to simply add a familar control panel type inteface to the desktop without a ton of re-engineering and very little overhead. So its light and fast :)...
Feel free to add your wish list of additons here. I know things like double click - vs- single click, changing ICON sizes, locking things, etc..etc.. But feel free to add away.
By the way, xfce4-appfinder is a nice 900 kb menu, prettier than the two-dimensional menus installed in the "big" distros. It will appear in "Accessories", from which you can make a desktop link if that is your desire. Only fault is it requires one more click to launch an app. than the regular menu or "myStuff"!
