Some information on Pypanel.


PyPanel is a lightweight panel/taskbar written in Python and C for X11 window managers. It can be easily customized to match any desktop theme or taste. PyPanel works with EWMH compliant WMs (Openbox, PekWM, FVWM, etc.) and is distributed under the GNU General Public License v2.


This package is no longer in Debian, see below for link to project page.



Configuration is done in the .pypanelrc file located at ~/.pypanelrc and is in fact written in python itself and therefore its editor must be aware of this fact. The default file that installs with the package is extremely well documented and provides examples in order to cater to those not familiar with the python scripting/programming language. An example snippet from the default configuration file:

# Application Launch List: Ordered list of icons and applications for the
#                          application launcher.
# Add entries using the following format -
#     ("<executable>", "<full path to icon>")
