Customization of R8 Microwatt panel (tint2)

  • May 11, 2014 5:38 PM PDT

    Openbox was adopted newly in R8 Microwatt.

    Openbox oneself does not have a panel.

    Therefore Microwatt realizes a panel in "tint2".

     

    You may be troubled with how to open menus of Microwatt. I support it.

     

     

    Open the menu by a right-click from a panel



    Micwowatt cannot found a menu from a panel with initial state.

    It is very easy to solve this.

    (Openbox usually clicks the right-click of the desktop and displays a menu) 

     

    open ~/.config/tint2/tint2rc in a text editor.

    (Folder .config about hiding is careful) 

     

    Please find this line:

    wm_menu = 0

    Change this:

    wm_menu = 1

    Please logout and login once after having stored a file, or execute this command in a terminal:

    killall -SIGUSR1 tint2

    Please click the right button on a panel.

     

     

    Improvement of the further panel

     

     

    I made a panel indication such as LXDE, I add a menu icon.

     

    Please execute a command, install xdotool:

    sudo apt-get install xdotool

    Please confirm that a menu is displayed by this command:

    xdotool key super+space

    Please download a file "menu.desktop" and put file in /usr/share/desktop :

    Please download a file "tint2rc" and change ~/.config/tint2/tint2rc :

     

    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/1125999/wattOS/tint2rc

     

    Please logout and login once after having stored a file, or execute this command in a terminal:

    killall -SIGUSR1 tint2

    A panel changes.
