Easy access to panel preferences from panel profiles


Description Yousuf 'Jay' Philips 2020-03-06 05:09:23 CET
Similar to the easy access to panel profiles from panel preferences, it would be good to have the opposite, with easy access to click a button in panel profiles to open panel preferences. One major reason is that if you apply a panel profile, it will close panel preferences if it was open.

Moving to correct component: xfce4-panel-profiles.

I have a simple idea. When xfce4-panel spawns xfce4-panel-profiles (in this function[0]) we can give a command line argument to the latter. Then when the user closes xfce4-panel-profiles, if it has been launched with this command line argument is reopens xfce4-panel.

What do you think? I can write an implementation, but I need to modify xfce4-panel code.

Open xfce4-panel on close button (bug #16505)

This is my proposal. To work I need to modify this function on xfce4-panel source code[0]. I am working on a patch also for this package.
