Desktop panel for LXQt: The Lightweight Qt Desktop Environment




This module adds a panel, with optional plugins, to the desktop.


The panel can be run independently of LXQt, autostarted at logon, and have multiple instances. A horizontal bottom panel shows by default on the desktop, but the alignment, size, autohide, transparency (requires compositor), and other attributes are user configurable.

The panel is comprised of plugins which provide a visual widget; like the menu, clock, or volume. They can be added or removed in the panel Widget settings.

Several plugins are loaded by default; the desktop menu and windows workspaces are also managed here.


Right-click over any plugin to reach the panel Configure settings option, or that of each respective plugin.
