From the project's [http://code.google.com/p/ttm/ 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 :)''
* 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
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
Tint is available from the standard repositories:
# pacman -S tint2
=== PKGBUILD from AUR ===
Tint's [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=40739 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:
# 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.sh file, for example:
xscreensaver -no-splash &
eval `cat $HOME/.fehbg` &
conky &
visibility &
'''''tint &'''''
exec openbox-session
