Tint2, une barre de tâches / Wiki / Debian-facile

Tint2 se présente sous forme d'une barre de tâches très légère et facile à configurer.

Il inclut une zone de notification (systray).

Son installation et sa configuration sont faciles à réaliser en éditant son fichier “tint2rc”.

Cependant, un utilitaire graphique permet de le faire tintwizard.

Tint2 - ArchWiki

If Xcompmgr is used solely to provide tint2 with transparency effects it can be run at boot by changing the autostart section in ~/.config/openbox/autostart to this:

Launch Xcomppmgr and tint2 with openbox

if which tint2 >/dev/null 2>&1; then
(sleep 2 && xcompmgr) &
(sleep 2 && tint2) &

Other (better) ways to make Xcompmgr run at startup are discussed in the Openbox article.

To force tint2 to stay on top of the application (overlay), you need to set the panel_layer option appropriately. This can be helpful when you switch from a fullscreen window to a normal application using Alt-Tab. There is a discussion on this at Crunchbang Forum

panel_layer = top
strut_policy = follow_size
