How to run two different Wbars at the Same TimeThis is a little tip on how to run two different instances of wbar simultaneously.* In this case one is horizontal on the bottom center of the screen and the other one is vertical on the left side of the screen.More Like This
1. Set up your two configuration files and save them in your ~/ directory.
2. If not already there, create a folder in your home directory called "scripts".
3. Create a document to hold an executable script in the "scripts" directory named "StartWbars.sh" (or something similar).

wbar -config ./Vertical.wbar2 -vbar -bpress -above-desk -balfa 60 nanim 5.0 -pos left -idist 8 -isize 32.0 -zoomf 1.1 &
5. Make it executable (chmod +x file, or in most modern Linux distros you can "right click" on the file and choose the option to make it executable).
