Notes: please use the second argument of the template to provide more detailed indications. (Discuss in Talk:Tint#)

Introduction

From the project's homepage:

ttm is a simple panel/taskbar intentionally made for openbox3, but should also work with other window managers. It's still in early development so please report bugs :)

Features

  • background button-border effect (see screenshot)
  • font shadow
  • option to center tasks
  • option to change panel width/height
  • tasks do now squeeze (more or less) when they hit panel edge
  • middle-click closes window
  • left-click toggles shade

Requirements

In order to grab the latest (svn) snapshot of tint's source code, you'll need to install subversion (a versioning system):

# pacman -S subversion

Installation

Tint is available from the standard repositories:

# pacman -S tint2

PKGBUILD from AUR

Tint's PKGBUILD is now available in AUR. Build it with Makepkg and install with pacman.

The config file will be created on tint's first run at .config/tint/tintrc

Compiling from source

Open your favourite terminal and enter:

$ svn checkout http://ttm.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ ttm
$ cd ./ttm/src
$ make
$ sudo make install

Now copy the sample config:

$ cd ..
$ mkdir -p ~/.config/tint/
$ cp config_sample ~/.config/tint/tintrc

Other Installation Methods

Edit your /etc/pacman.conf and add:

[rfad]
# Repository made by haxit | Contact: requiem [at] archlinux.us for package suggestions!
Server = http://web.ncf.ca/ey723/archlinux/repo/

And then run the following:

pacman -S tint

Running Tint

You should now be able to launch tint as you would any other application (e.g. Alt+F2 -> tint). To run it at startup, you can add it to the ~/.xinitrc, or ~/.config/openbox/autostart file, for example:

xscreensaver -no-splash &
eval `cat $HOME/.fehbg` &
conky &
visibility &
tint &
exec openbox-session
