Running Openbox without a panel

Are there any tips or tricks to running Openbox without a panel?

May have to get Conky to display time... or figure way I can bring up time/clock via keyboard

Will tie windows list to a shortcut too

Or could I run a panel on one desktop rather than all?

Re: Running Openbox without a panel

I once tried Skippy and really liked it:
About Skippy
source: http://thegraveyard.org/skippy.html

Skippy is what (I think) is best described as a full-screen task-switcher for X11. It tries to provide an alternative when taskbars or regular task-switchers aren't the most efficient way of switching tasks (like when you have a lot of applications open). When activated (currently only through a hotkey), it will arrange and scale snapshots of all windows on the current desktop and it'll let you pick a window using a mouse or a keyboard. Yes, this is also what expocity and Apple's Expose do (yeah, I know, Expose does more than just this), but I don't like metacity (expocity is a 'hacked up' version of that) and I don't have a Mac.

It is just that I missed my beautiful tint panel.

If you want to try other panels:
see: http://urukrama.wordpress.com/openbox-guide/#Panelsetc to get an idea of the choice you got for panels.

Re: Running Openbox without a panel

Will check skippy out, think I have tried it many years ago.

You could always have tint2 auto hide [best of both worlds]

Thanks for the heads up
