tint2 - lightweight panel/taskbar


tint2 -c /path_to_config_file


This manual page documents briefly the tint2 command.

tint2 is a simple panel/taskbar intentionally made for openbox3, but should also work with other window managers. It's based on ttm code. The goal is to keep a clean and unintrusive look with code lightweight and compliance with freedesktop specifications.

On the first startup tint2 creates a config file in $HOME/.config/tint2/tint2rc.

See the wiki page at for more information.


-c config-file
Specify which configuration file to use instead of the default.
