            dtigue: Did you every get a response? If nobody is maintaining the project and the author can't be found it can always be forked. I'm doing some work for myself to put together a touchpad UbuntuRemix of my own and wbar is one of the things I have found that I'd like to use. But to make it really work I'd like to add submenues and docking. If you or anybody else would like to join me in doing a little work on wbar leave a comment here or send me a message. Meanwhile I'll try to get intouch with the current owner.

            if someone could find a way to set wbar in dual head(screen) monitors it would be great!
            the thing is that I can't set it up on the monitor that I want.. the best way to get this right would be if there was an option to set X and Y variables..

            I love wbar all my business and personal computers use. You get the eyecandy without the bloat. I was wondering if this project is still being maintained, if not then I'd like to take over and keep wbar alive.

            Never mind, I figured it out: stdlib.h and it compiles just fine.
