bmpanel2 - X11 NETWM compliant panel (desktop switcher, taskbar, systray, clock, launcher, etc.) with themeing capabilities.

SYNOPSIS

bmpanel2 [-h|--help] [--version] [--usage] [--list] [--theme=<theme>]

DESCRIPTION

BMPanel2 (bitmap panel) is a tiny little bar on the top of the screen or on the bottom. It contains different "widgets" - the pieces of functionality which help user to interact with his desktop. Some of the default widgets include:

1. Taskbar - A list of tasks (windows) on the current desktop.

2. Desktop Switcher - Allows user to choose current desktop.

3. Systray - Also known as notification area.

4. Clock - No comments.

5. Launchbar - Allows user to run different programs in one click.

The main goal of this project is to create a simple, lightweight, nice looking, but still useful panel, that will be accompanied with another piece of a really good software - the Openbox 3.
