Subject description: 2008-04-13 updated
 

This was compiled in Puppy 4 and may not work on other Puppies.

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=180858

This is just a light weight panel for your window manager. Useful if you want to use a window manager with no panel (like pekwm or openbox).

This new version uses a different config file and location for it. Now it's at:
$HOME/.config/lxpanel/default/config

I hacked the source of lxpanel to natively build the Puppy menu instead of needing a xdg generator. I also added the Puppy icon paths into the source code so no temp icon path needs to be created. This new version of lxpanel also includes its own gui configuration tool which you can start from the "Preferences" selection in the menu. I suggest adding this line to /usr/sbin/fixmenus if it isn't there already so the fixmenus selection in the lxpanel menu will restart lxpanel.

Code:

#support for lxpanel..
[ `which lxpanel_menu_refresh` ] && lxpanel_menu_refresh


I'll include a package of the hacked source files incase you want to compile for a different puppy version.

I tried lxpanel with open box in puppy 3.01
i works quite well

is it possible to insert tray applets like glipper or fbxkb( keyboard layout indicator) into lxpanel

also gaim does not recognize the panel as a tray
i see there are some good aplications on the lxde page

http://lxde.sourceforge.net/

I'm not sure. I'll mess around with that stuff sometime tonight and see what I can get to work. I would think it should work though since there is a tray plugin.

glipper sits in the system tray of lxpanel just fine for me. I didn't try the other program though but if it sits in the tray it should work just fine.

I think he still had icewm running, see the fbpanel thread.
So the icons went to the icewm-tray, that was covered by lxpanel.

To use trayapps in lxpanel when you use icewm, remove icewmtray from "startup".

Thanks plinej. It seems fine in 301 with openbox.

Is there a way to get the panel to cover the little square (in the bottom right)? And to have just 1 desktop and no pager icons? These aren't indicated in the comments in the default and pager config files. And there's only a small faq online.

Thanks plinej.

Simply removing the pager plugin is fine so long as there's no way to accidentally find you're in one of others. Maybe no plugin = no others Idea

The panel in fbpanel and those in jwm and fluxbox are above autocutsel. I need it because I copy from rxvt a lot.

Hello,

Did you know that running lxpanelctl configure brings up a configuration dialog?

However, I'm interested in your gtkdialog configuration program for another Linux distribution. Do you think you could post the script or a link to it? Thanks.

Thanks much. I think I'm going to work on this a little bit because I think there's more that could be added in. If I do I'll post it back here.

I just wanted to point out one thing. In my experience, it's better to use:

export MAIN_DIALOG='

than

export MAIN_DIALOG="

Then you can freely use double quotes inside the program without having to resort to backslashes.

Shocked even shows the KDE-icons...
And is very fast...

Must look at the source, to see what it uses as resourcefiles.
This makes my own menu almost obsolete.

Works in Muppy (Puppy3).

Many thanks, this is brilliant, Mark

Well thanks. I spent a couple of hours hacking at the source and I'm very happy with the results too.

This works great in fluxbox, puppy300 retro.
I can't get it to start in Golem wm. It shows up and then disappears.


Code:
# lxpanel
lxpanel: symbol lookup error: lxpanel: undefined symbol: g_once_init_enter_impl
#
