.

tint2 Wiki page >> http://code.google.com/p/tint2/wiki/Configure

Everything you need to know about tint2 panel and how to configure it.

Or trying searching in the Crunchbang/Linux or Arch/Linux Forums ... they both have great sections about using tint2

I have been using tint2 for so long ... I find it easier than any other panel, I've used before.

Tint isnt to difficult to learn once you understand the basics,
Go into Thunar click ctrl-h to show hidden files,
In there youll see .tint2rc
From there you can do stuff like making it longer or shorter.I prefer the full length of my computer.
So i looked for the line that said ,,[panel size] i increased the length to 100% 30
if you want it shorter you can make it 50 or what ever your preference is. the 30 afterwards is the height,you can increase or decrease that.

The next thing to know it color codes,,Sounds scary,but its quite simple,I download gcolor,Its a color picker that gives you the color code.
In the text you see something like [background_color = #ffffff 40] the #ffffff is the color code. and the 40 is the transparency.

You can choose to have icons in your tabs or not by using 1 or 0
This will be in Tasks section. and will say [task_icon = 0] if you change it to 1 youll have icons in you tint tabs.

Heres something i always change,I prefer a 12 hour clock than a 24 hour.
Change the stock clock setting were it says [clock] time1_format = %_I:%M%P this will give you a 12 hour clock.

Anywere it says fonts is pretty self explanatory,you can change the size or style of font.

Backgrounds and Borders is fairly easy also,were it says rounded = 7 is the shape of the panel or tab,you can change the shape by changing the number.

Save the changes and after reboot you will see your changes.

Here is my changes to the Stock tint2rc.
You also can auto hide your tint2 by changing the 0 to 1.I havent tried that yet.

At the moment ... the tint2 panel does not do application launchers. :cry:

They say the next updated version of tint2 will.

I good way to make it easier to launch firefox or any program for that matter would be to just add it to the top of your fluxbox menu... Although an application launcher in tint2 would probably look pretty nice.

If you want an application launcher you could try wmdrawer, it works for Fluxbox's slit.

I was actually looking for something similar and I found a program called wbar.. I haven't got it to work yet though.. There's also a program called docky but I'm not so sure it's compatible with fluxbox cuz I haven't played around with the config files yet.

I use wbar, and it works great. I launch it in startup with (sleep 5; wbar -p top) if you don't use the delay it will launch to fast. the -p top tells it to start at the top of your desktop.
With MintFlux 9 there is no wbar config in the repo's so you have to manually edit the config file. But it looks and works good, and only uses about 5 mg of ram to run.

I hope this isn't going to far off topic but does anyone have a config file for wbar then? I'd like to get it on the top of my desktop and stuff. I'd like just a basic type of thing then i can change it..
