Configuration for FSPANEL ?


Hello

fspanel is a panel for X11.
http://freecode.com/projects/fspanel

Would you have a possible configuration file for it? I couldnt find any on the board.

Thank you

Pretty old project, last release was 16 years ago - I looked at the code on github and there doesn't appear to be a configuration that I can tell. You might want to check another lightweight panel like "fbpanel". It is very easy to configure and looks like the last update was about 1 year ago so it's not completely ancient...

I disagree fspanel is much much better than fbpanel, which relies on too much dependencies.

You can compile fspanel with gcc and libx11, and you do not need more to get a panel to switch between windows. It was good and is still good.

However you do get config, but well, it is light. cons and advs.

I am not disagreeing with you or saying one is better, you asked where the config is and I didn't see one in the git repository. It may be that fspanel is configured in code or that there is no configuration.

i'm surprised to see gtk2 in there.
i guess it's only for the separate tint2config application, because tint2 itself certainly doesn't use gtk2.

maybe bmpanel, another hopelessly outdated linux app?

I'd expect a senior member to know better than that and to know it's just a web search away.
