just finished installing ubuntu 13.10 with xubuntu Desktop and i tried to have a "windows 7" look (I know, some of you will hate me but after 15 years using windows, it is hard to loose the habit of the bottom bar and the start menu. However, after fallowing the PCWORLD guide how-to-make-ubuntu-linux-look-like-windows-7 Installing and customizing Xfce, I would like to fix the Panel I have set up. Even if I followed the guide entirely, when I added the Window Buttons Item, I realized that it has a dynamic size and doesn't look like the guide....all the Items "on the right side" (Separator, Notification Area, Indicator Plugin, Show Desktop) do not stay fixed but they move from left to right and right to left depending how many "windows" I open.:
Anyone of you has an Idea how to fix the size so I will have my bar looking like the windows on with the Start button on the left, the clock and plugins on the right and then the middle empty when windows are not opened?
