My machine has minimal Ubuntu server + openbox. I am very fond of this environment. Gets me do what I want without requiring a full-blown desktop.
Now I am looking at a way to display IP address on the screen. While browsing the Internet, I came across an applet called giplet that could do it. However, it appears I need to install gnome-panel to make it work.
I am wondering if there is a better way to display IP address in the background. The idea is to keep the desktop requirements minimal.
I guess if there is no better choice, I will install gnome-panel + giplet.
Thank you in advance for your help.
