Re: panels?

Tint2 is quite configurable, the tintwizard GUI saves most if not all editing of config file. You can put it on any side, pick its colours, position the various components, & it is light as can be.

xfce4-panel is highly configurable & has lots of plugins: http://goodies.xfce.org/

Its heavier than Tint2 but you probably won't notice that it is.

Re: panels?

avant-window-navigator ... usually filed under 'docks', but it can do panels, too, with MainMenu and all.
it's not as lightweight as tint2 but looks really nice and you can easily configure it to be anything like a Mint / Win7 panel or a Ubuntu/Unity sidebar or a MacOS dock, and everything in between.

Re: panels?

I would like to suggest Adeskbar; it is very configurable and very lightweight.

For themes see thisArch wiki page: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Op … s_and_Apps

Re: panels?

you can build a new one.
$ cp ~/.config/tint2/default.tint2rc ~/.config/tint2/yoursetup.tint2rc

then start tint2conf and you will see your new theme.
Select it and right click -> Properties
Edit as you want and apply to see changes

You can also use tintwizard.py from aur

Re: panels?

With tint2 running you are not going to be able to see changes, personally I would create a new theme in a working directory then use tint2 -c <name of config> to test. Also make panel show up at top of screen while testing, no sense in over writing your normal panel.

Re: panels?

You are probably better off searching for configs and guides on the web.

Re: panels?

Try playing around with the configs on this page to add a menu, launchers, etc to tint2
