The problem that I'm having today is that, although I really do like xfce,
there is this incredibly annoying problem with the pidgin tray icon when
using it on my laptop (Slackware 12.0). The problem is that when I click
the tray icon to iconify the contact list (take it out of the task bar),
then click it again to bring it back, the window gets maximize; unlike the
nice 1/5-screen size that I like it. It doesn't do that on my desktop,
though (also running Slack 12.0). I have decided it might be hardware
dependent, but I'm not sure what could cause it. Any ideas or solutions?
Thanks.
