I made as small (16% width) top panel. It suddenly gets hidden behind overlapping or maximized windows. Neither '...panel as dock', 'Reserve space...', nor automatic hiding are checked.

How do I make it stay on top?

I already tried creating a new one, but the problem remained.

  • Lucky you... I'm looking everywhere to find a way to disable the "always on top" panel behavior. – Alexander Shcheblikin Oct 31 '17 at 2:13

To make lxpanel stay above other windows you should:

  1. in panel settings:

    • Make window managers treat panel as dock
    • Reserve space and not covered by maximized windows
  2. in Openbox Settings (obconf from console) in Dock section set all appropriate settings.
