[solved]Text rotation in XFCE panel

Postby coco45 » 2021-02-11 13:28

I am using xfce-4 in vertical configuration and then clock and date indications are then also vertical ; is there anyway to put them in horizontal position , it will be much better to read them?
Note ; I tried to add a specific configuration in the xfce menu such as "/plugins/plugin-7/rotate-vertically" , but it's doesn't work ; I found that on the net , noting on xfce documentation .
I used during a short period Mx with xfce and the text were horizontal , as far as I remenber , then it should be possible .

Do a right click and select preferences. Just tested panel itself and orage clock, and bot had direction setting.

Same here, Debian Buster stable 10.8, Xfce 14.2. Ok, that was just a coincidence, those 2 what I tried had that option, but others did not.

Sorry, can not help further :roll:
