tint2 — lightweight panel/taskbar

Synopsis

tint2 [-c path_to_config_file]

Description

tint2 is a simple panel/taskbar made for modern X window managers. It was specifically made for Openbox but it should also work with other window managers (GNOME, KDE, XFCE etc.).

Features:

·
Panel with taskbar, system tray, clock and launcher icons;
·
Easy to customize: color/transparency on fonts, icons, borders and backgrounds;
·
Pager like capability: move tasks between workspaces (virtual desktops), switch between workspaces;
·
Multi-monitor capability: create one panel per monitor, showing only the tasks from the current monitor;
·
Customizable mouse events.

Goals:

·
Be unintrusive and light (in terms of memory, CPU and aesthetic);
·
Follow the freedesktop.org specifications;
·
Make certain workflows, such as multi-desktop and multi-monitor, easy to use.

Options

-c path_to_config_file
Specifies which configuration file to use instead of the default.

Introduction

These are instructions for configuring tint2 directly by editing its config file. You may also use instead the graphical interface tint2conf.

The first time you run tint2, it will create the config file in $HOME/.config/tint2/tint2rc (This applies if you have done a clean install. Running tint2 in the source directory without doing 'make install' will not create the config file.)

You can also specify another file on the command line with the -c option, e.g.: tint2 -c $HOME/tint2.conf. This can be used to run multiple instances of tint2 that use different settings.

If you change the config file while tint2 is running, the command killall -SIGUSR1 tint2 will force tint2 to reload it.

All the configuration options supported in the config file are listed below. Try to respect as much as possible the order of the options as given below.

Backgrounds and borders

The tint2 config file starts with the options defining background elements with borders:

·
rounded = number_of_pixels : the corner radius
·
border_width = integer : the border width in pixels
·
border_sides = LRTB : the sides to draw the border on (left, right, top, bottom). If not specified, all sides are used. (since 0.12.12)
·
background_color = color opacity
·
color is specified in hex RGB, e.g. #ff0000 is red
·
opacity varies from (0 to 100), where 0 is fully transparent, 100 is fully opaque. Note that for a transparent panel you need to enable a desktop compositor (such as compton or compiz).
·
border_color = color opacity
·
color is specified in hex RGB, e.g. #ff0000 is red
·
opacity varies from (0 to 100), where 0 is fully transparent, 100 is fully opaque
·
background_color_hover = color opacity (default: same as background_color) (since 0.12.3)
·
color is specified in hex RGB, e.g. #ff0000 is red
·
opacity varies from (0 to 100), where 0 is fully transparent, 100 is fully opaque. Note that for a transparent panel you need to enable a desktop compositor (such as compton or compiz)
·
border_color_hover = color opacity (default: same as border_color) (since 0.12.3)
·
color is specified in hex RGB, e.g. #ff0000 is red
·
opacity varies from (0 to 100), where 0 is fully transparent, 100 is fully opaque
·
background_color_pressed = color opacity (default: same as background_color_hover) (since 0.12.3)
·
color is specified in hex RGB, e.g. #ff0000 is red
·
opacity varies from (0 to 100), where 0 is fully transparent, 100 is fully opaque. Note that for a transparent panel you need to enable a desktop compositor (such as compton or compiz)
·
border_color_pressed = color opacity (default: same as border_color_hover) (since 0.12.3)
·
color is specified in hex RGB, e.g. #ff0000 is red
·
opacity varies from (0 to 100), where 0 is fully transparent, 100 is fully opaque

You can define as many backgrounds as you want. For example, the following config defines two backgrounds:

rounded = 1
border_width = 0
background_color = #282828 100
border_color = #000000 0

rounded = 1
border_width = 0
background_color = #f6b655 90
border_color = #cccccc 40

tint2 automatically identifies each background with a number starting from 1 (1, 2, ...). Afterwards, you can apply a background to objects (panel, taskbar, task, clock, systray) using the background id, for example:

panel_background_id = 1
taskbar_background_id = 0
task_background_id = 0
task_active_background_id = 2
systray_background_id = 0
clock_background_id = 0

Identifier 0 refers to a special background which is fully transparent, identifier 1 applies the first background defined in the config file etc.

Panel

·
panel_items = LTSBC defines the items tint2 will show and the order of those items. Each letter refers to an item, defined as:
·
L shows the Launcher
·
T shows the Taskbar
·
S shows the Systray (also called notification area)
·
B shows the Battery status
·
C shows the Clock
·
F adds an extensible spacer (freespace). Has no effect if T is also present. (since 0.12)
·
E adds an executor plugin. You can specify more than one. (since 0.12.4)

For example, panel_items = STC will show the systray, the taskbar and the clock (from left to right).

·
panel_monitor = monitor (all or 1 or 2 or ...) : Which monitor tint2 draws the panel on
·
The first monitor is 1
·
Use panel_monitor = all to get a separate panel per monitor
·
primary_monitor_first = boolean (0 or 1) : Place the primary monitor before all the other monitors in the list. (since 0.12.4)

·
panel_position = vertical_position horizontal_position orientation
·
vertical_position is one of: bottom, top, center
·
horizontal_position is one of: left, right, center
·
orientation is one of: horizontal, vertical
·
panel_size = width height
·
width and height can be specified without units (e.g. 123) as pixels, or followed by % as percentages of the monitor size (e.g. 50%). Use 100% for full monitor width/height. Example:
# The panel's width is 94% the size of the monitor, the height is 30 pixels:
panel_size = 94% 30
·
panel_margin = horizontal_margin vertical_margin : The margins define the distance between the panel and the horizontal/vertical monitor edge. Use 0 to obtain a panel with the same size as the edge of the monitor (no margin).

·
panel_layer = bottom/normal/top : Places tint2 into the bottom/normal/top layer. This is helpful for specifying if the panel can be covered by other windows or not. The default is the bottom layer, but with real transparency normal or top layer may be a nice alternative.
·
strut_policy = follow_size/minimum/none : STRUTs are used by the window manager to decide the size of maximized windows. Note: on multi-monitor (Xinerama) setups, the panel must be placed at the edge (not in the middle) of the virtual screen for this to work correctly.
·
follow_size means that the maximized windows always resize to have a common edge with tint2.
·
minimum means that the maximized windows always expand to have a common edge with the hidden panel. This is useful if the autohide option is enabled.

If only a file name is specified, the file is search in the standard application directories ($XDG_DATA_HOME/applications, ~/.local/share/applications, $XDG_DATA_DIRS/applications, /usr/local/share/applications, /usr/share/applications, /opt/share/applications).

Mouse actions for taskbar buttons

The possible mouse events are: left, middle, right, scroll_up, scroll_down.

The possible mouse actions are: none, close, toggle, iconify, shade, toggle_iconify, maximize_restore, desktop_left, desktop_right, next_task, prev_task.

Use mouse_event = action to customize mouse actions. Example:
mouse_middle = none
mouse_right = close
mouse_scroll_up = toggle
mouse_scroll_down = iconify

The action semantics:
* none : If wm_menu = 1 is set, the mouse event is forwarded to the window manager. Otherwise it is ignored. * close : close the task * toggle : toggle the task * iconify : iconify (minimize) the task * toggle_iconify : toggle or iconify the task * maximize_restore : maximized or minimized the task * shade : shades (collapses) the task * desktop_left : send the task to the desktop on the left * desktop_right : send the task to the desktop on the right * next_task : send the focus to next task * prev_task : send the focus to previous task
