I have a small touch-netbook with Ubuntu 11.10. I want to do either one of this (both solutions would be fine)

  1. configure onboard (or any other touch-keyboard) to always be at the bottom and no other window can go above or under it. this includes maximizing!

  2. create a panel/application window of my own with this behaviour

basically I want the same functionality as a panel and configure onboard/unity/compiz to obey this configuration or create my own panel.

Any hints would be really appreciated!
