nitrogen --restore and xrandr --scale

Following this post regarding Eee PC 701: I added these two options to jgmenu:

800x480,xrandr --output LVDS1 --panning 800x480 && nitrogen --restore
1024x768,xrandr --output LVDS1 --panning 1024x768 && nitrogen --restore
1280x720,xrandr --output LVDS1 --panning 1280x720 && nitrogen --restore

I recently found out the --scale option for xrandr, so I attempt to try it out

It occurs that nitrogen --restore does not relocate the desktop arrangement to the scaled resolution, but uses the original 800x480 resolution.

Is this normal behaviour? If so, what command do I have to use to make the "taskbar" at the bottom as normal? Thanks

Nitrogen handles the wallpaper. Nothing else. With flags --set-scaled or --set-zoom, as mentioned in the man page (command "man nitrogen"), you can resize the wallpaper.

I recommend you to read throgh Introduction to the Bunsenlabs Lithium Desktop
Are you refering to tint2? When rezising the desktop with xrandr, tint2 will also be resized. But, it has its own configuration also.
If you present an image of the appearence of your tint2, it might be possible to advise you.
