A description of what your program is used for and what id does would help a lot!
Before now, I had never heard of tint2 Panel.

So what are its features?

tint2 is a simple panel/taskbar unintrusive and light (memory / cpu / aestetic). We try to get 'virtual desktop' and 'multi-monitor' easier to use. We follow freedesktop specifications.

0.11 features

•panel with taskbar, systray, clock and battery status
•easy to customize : color/transparency on font, icon, border and background
•pager like capability : send task from one workspace to another, switch workspace
•multi-monitor capability : one panel per monitor, show task from current monitor
•customize mouse event
•window manager's menu
•tooltip
•autohide
•clock timezones
•real & fake transparency with autodetection of composite manager
•panel's theme switcher 'tint2conf'

Tint2 is pretty nice (I used for a few POC desktop designs).
BUT it definitely needs the ability to add launcher buttons. For example, for a menu or for frequently used applications. That would make it a pretty good tool for window managers that come without a built-in panel, like openbox or metacity.

@axiz
Welcome to the forum, and thanks for the contribution Smile



@warmock

The next release should have the launcher.

the svn trunk tint2 has the launcher incorporated now. I grabbed this 2 days ago, and it works fine so far:
svn checkout http://tint2.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ tint2-read-only

the tint2rc additions look like this (snarfed from the wiki)

# Panel
panel_items = LTSBC

#---------------------------------------------
# APPLICATION LAUNCHER
#---------------------------------------------
launcher = 1
launcher_padding = 2 4 2
launcher_background_id = 5
# Icon size
launcher_icon_size = 22
# Specify one or more icon theme names with launcher_icon_theme (e.g. oxygen, Tango), in decreasing order of priority
launcher_icon_theme = oxygen
launcher_icon_theme = nuoveXT2
launcher_icon_theme = Tango
# Each launcher_item_app must be a full path to a .desktop file
launcher_item_app = /home/ovi/.local/share/applications/poweroff.desktop
launcher_item_app = /home/ovi/.local/share/applications/lock.desktop
launcher_item_app = /usr/share/applications/mandriva-drakconf.desktop

@upnorth
that's very good news, thank you. Very Happy
tint2 looks very good in conjunction with the wbar dock. Add a very small window manager to the mix, and you get a decent-looking desktop environment that requires little ressources and runs even on very old machines. Can't wait for the new version to be released and give it another try.

PostPosted: Sat 02 Oct 2010, 15:13    Post_subject: not working with libs
Sub_title: kernel implementation of imlib2?
 

Hey I can't get tint2conf to run after having installed imlib, imlib2 and tint2 with your pet files:
"tint2conf: error while loading shared libraries: libImlib2.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

I don't have it compiled in the standard lucid puppy 5.1.1 kernel.
What to do?

EDIT: I fixed my own problem by running:
ln -s ln -s /usr/local/lib/libImlib2.so.1.4.4 /usr/lib/libImlib2.so
ln -s /usr/local/lib/libImlib2.so.1.4.4 /usr/lib/libImlib2.so.1

Python and python-gtk2 is also required, I noticed

Sub_title: Thanks from french user to host this translation
 

How to use it translation to french :
"Tint2 réglages xinitrc bootmanager wmswitcher. tint 2 nécessite openbox.
Installez votre paquet
Ensuite modifiez xintrc ligne 164 et 169 pour remplacer fbpanel par tint2
Ouvrez le bootmanager où vous décocherez fbpanel
Ensuite Allez sous le menu Desktop verifier si openbox est bien coché et redémarrez x, voilà, votre barre tint2 apparait. "
Thanks from french user to host this translation, that avoid creating a special topic In french spoken forum.
