I really like Tint Task Manager (http://code.google.com/p/ttm/) and Visibility (http://projects.l3ib.org/trac/visibility). However, it's sometimes a hassle to change their themes.

After talking to BOBSONATOR, I thought it would be nice to start a thread similar to "Post your .conkrc files w/screenshots" in order to share themes with others.

Note that the theme file for Tint is:

~/.config/tint/tintrcand the theme file for visibility is:

~/.config/visibility/configHere's my current Visibility look:

http://i103.photobucket.com/albums/m128/envyouraudience/visibility.png

and here's my config file:


orientation top_right

so the clock isn't part of visibility? it's a clever illusion!

it took a bit of tinkering to get conky's text centered vertically (as visibility's is), but other than that it's just a matter of setting all the colours and fonts the same and lining them up :)

for the few who are so inclined:

i compiled a deb (something that i have never done before) for tint. pal has posted it under the "Downloads" section of the tint project page on google code.

i don't really expect it to work, but please try it out and let me know whether it does :)

The deb works for me, thanks. I'd never heard of this before, it's pretty nifty. :)

I keep getting that nasty PANGO error... I don't get it, since pango is installed.

btw: what's going on with visibility? the website has been down for a few days now


Pango-CRITICAL **: pango_font_description_from_string: assertion `str != NULL' failed
I already reinstalled everything with the name pango from synaptic. any ideas?

post your problem on the "issues" area of the tint website. pal (staura) will help you.

The Deb worked liked a charm for me! absolutely brilliant, since i'm behind a school firewall (even at home, as i live on campus) and can't use svn to get stuff... Cheers dbbolton!

anyway, my current tintrc (only just downloaded/installed), so still working on it:


font = zekton 10
font_color = #000000
font_alpha = 50
font_active_color = #000000
font_active_alpha = 100
font_shadow = 0

task_text_centered = 0
task_width = 120
task_margin = 0
task_padding = 5

task_background = 1
task_background_color = #ffffff
task_background_alpha = 50
task_active_background_color = #ffffff
task_active_background_alpha = 100
task_background_as_border = 0

panel_width = 0
panel_height = 36
panel_tasks_centered = 0

panel_background = 0
panel_background_color = #ffffff
panel_background_alpha = 0


screenshot attached. Any ideas on how to improve, give me a shout. Also, can anyone recommend a good system tray program? I can't seem to get docker to work - i run it, but nothing shows up at all...

you might give pypanel a try. you can make it into just a system tray by editing your ~/.pypanelrc file. there is a section that looks like this:


#------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# Panel Layout: -----------------------------------
# [ 1 ][ 2 ][ 3 ][ 4 ][ 5 ]
# -----------------------------------
#
# The panel layout is split into 5 sections numbered 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 as shown
# in the diagram above. Each of the following objects can be enabled by
# assigning it a section number or disabled by assigning it 0:
#------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DESKTOP = 0 # Desktop name section
TASKS = 0 # Task names section
TRAY = 1 # System tray section
CLOCK = 0 # Clock section
LAUNCHER = 0 # Application launcher section

yeah - i was using that, but i couldn't see it: i realised i had it hidden underneath the tint panel. All sorted now - looking good. Just posting latest desktop with tint to the desktop thread!

did you find where you can put pypanel at the top of the screen?

I'm trying tint (finally it's working)
Any idea how can I make windows don't expand further than tint's height? So that I can still use right-click on my desktop (like I used to do with xfce panel)

That is one of the reasons I don't use tint. It looks nice and is useful, but if you maximise windows, tint covers the bottom part of it (it doesn't use a strut), which is very annoying if you actually use that bottom part (statusbars, etc.). I searched, but couldn't find a way around it.

Yeah it's very troublesome. I find the little free space left by the panel very useful to quickly open apps, tint doesn't allow this.
It makes my desktop gorgeous though, so I'll take screenshots with it but I'll use xfce panel most of the time, because I can't get pypanel to work

Installed Tint .deb, got this error:

I guess i'll have to try compiling it myself.

i think you need libglib2.4-dev installed first.

i think you need libglib2.4-dev installed first.

apt-get install libglib2.4-dev
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
E: Couldn't find package libglib2.4-dev

I tried to compile it before this but I didn't have checkinstall installed. I tried to install it but it wasn't in etch's repos. I did just find a .deb of checkinstall on the checkinstall site though. I'll try it now.

EDIT: Installed it, but when I try to run it:

Could not grab wallpaper, panel background alpha will be disabled
Segmentation fault

Probably because I have no wallpaper. I'll use feh to get wallpaper then...

EDIT: Did that;

sorry, i think the correct package name would be libglibmm-2.4-dev or possibly libglib2.0-dev

but it would probably be much easier to compile it anyhow. el mariachi had a similar pango error. he can probably tell you what's happening.

I made a visibility theme generator. As easy as it is to make the visibility config file, a theme generator may seem somewhat superfluous. This is just something that I wanted to play around with. Eventually, I would like to make a GTK app with a color picker and a live preview.

Anyway, if anyone would like to put it on his server, here it is.

the formula for the font is like this:

font = [FAMILY-LIST] [STYLE-OPTIONS] [SIZE]

so you could say:

font = BitstreamVeraSans 10

I got it from a deb in it's site (I think dbbolton did it [?]). I don't know if it's the latest version.
No TTF font works for me. I can change the font size and use Linux fonts like Monospace though.

font_active_color = #FFFFFF
font_active_alpha = 100
font_shadow = 0

task_width = 100
task_margin = 3
task_padding = 5
panel_width = 0
panel_height = 30
panel_tasks_centered = 0
panel_background = 1
panel_background_color = #000000
panel_background_alpha = 15
task_background = 1
task_background_color = #000000
task_background_alpha = 30
task_active_background_color = #C08275
task_active_background_alpha = 70
task_background_as_border = 1

gives you 30% black bar 100% width, left aligned tasks, faded non-active.

need to work on fonts next, nothing is changing at the min.

to start tint you need to issue the command tint.
it's best to issue it from a prompt like grun or any 'run program' prompt your Desktop Environment has.

The configuration file sits in ~/.config/tint/tint.rc
I think the default one is commented so it's easy to mod to your taste. If not, just thinker with it or try some settings posted on this thread.

Please tell us what Desktop Environment are you using, so that we can tell you how to set up tint to be launched on startup (if you want that, of course)

# (yes, a theme could 'inherit' from another theme by specifying a theme!)

#theme magicaltheme

orientation bottom_left # set this to the corner of the desktop that you
# would like visibility to be placed. valid options:
# top_left, top_right, bottom_left, bottom_right

gap_x 55 # the amount of space to leave between the pager and

# can provide its own borders for borderless
# windows.

show_desktop_names true # whether or not to show desktop names. these names
# are specified by your window manager. valid
# options are 'true' and 'false'.

# current desktop.

bg_colour 3C4746 # the background colour

border_colour 758C8A # the border colour

inactive_text_colour 758C8A # the colour of the name an inactive desktop.

# 'verdana-10'.

inactive_bg_colour 3C4746 # the background colour of inactive desktops.

active_bg_colour 3C4746 # the background colour of active desktops.
# if you hate this setting, set it to the same as
# bg_colour and inactive_bg_colour, and you will
# probably be a happy camper.

set_partial_strut true # whether or not to reserve space on the desktop
# edge. this is useful if you do not want windows
# to maximize over visibility.

set_window_type true # if true, visibility sets itself to be of 'dock'

Just installed tint2 and really like it - just what I've been looking for. :)

However I have an annoying problem: the first time I click a task the whole tint panel 'jumps' upwards by the same amount as its own height.

(If I set the panel to be at the top it jumps downwards instead.)

After this initial jump it stays in the same place when clicked, but if I move the panel back to where it's meant to be at the bottom of the screen it will jump away again.

It's almost like it tries to reserve a place for itself on the desktop and move everything else out of the way, but for some reason ends up moving itself. :confused:

I am left with a blank space at the bottom of the screen which windows won't fill when maximised, and the actual tint panel hidden behind open windows.

Any ideas about what's going on?

Hi :)

This happens even with the default config file :(

I am using compiz... I guess I could switch to openbox but I'd rather not lose my compiz setup...

edit: Just tried with openbox and it works fine. I guess it's a compiz thing. I know tint is designed for openbox, but the site does say it should work with other window managers...

Hey guys. I have a question for you.

I'm running Openbox with tint. How can I make tint stay above other windows?

I already have a margin set so that maximized windows don't cover it, but I'm referring to dragging a window around. I don't want it to cover tint. I could've sworn it already had this behavior until a recent update. Or maybe I'm crazy.

No, you are not crazy !
With the next release, tint is always behind other's window.

This is because tint use fake transparency.
So if tint is in top and you drag a window behind, tint will always show the background.
It's not beautiful...

While that is true, I still find it more useful to have a non-beautiful task bar above the windows, than a beautiful bar behind them. Oh well.

Hey guys. I have a question for you.

I'm running Openbox with tint. How can I make tint stay above other windows?

I already have a margin set so that maximized windows don't cover it, but I'm referring to dragging a window around. I don't want it to cover tint. I could've sworn it already had this behavior until a recent update. Or maybe I'm crazy.


Try adding this to your rc.xml in the <applications> section (probably around line 382):



<application class="panel">
<layer>above</layer>
</application>

I'm running gnome/compiz and was wondering if it was possibly to get tint2 to only display the running aps for each workspace. I know XFCE often has troubles with conflicting workspaces and compiz but I'm not sure about gnome.

I tried that, but it didn't have any effect.

Tint2 doesn't have a WM_CLASS or WM_WINDOW_ROLE, so you can't specify those either in the rc.xml.

tint doesn't show gedit task :(

As of tint2 displaing window decorations if you're using Compiz, open the CompizConfigSettingsManager (ccsm), go on "Windows Decorations" and on the "Decoration Windows", use: (any) & !(title=tint)

The problem is that if you open your tint folder or edit your tintrc, the window decorations won't show for that window. Not a real problem.

Now my turn seek help.. I'm running tint on Ubuntu 8.04, replacing the gnome-panel. I'm running compiz aswell. I'm getting these gliches, no matter what tintrc config I try.

Also, my first click on it, moves it down and it stays there. Any ideas?

toozler
August 29th, 2008, 03:23 AM
Instead of (any) & !(title=tint), use (any) & !(type=dock), works better!

Still, any suggestion on how to solve tint transparency glich? And moving after click?

tint have a bug with transparency...

the move after click is not done by tint. I think it's a bug in compiz.

check http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=875971&highlight=tint
and report if it solve the problem.

I'm having a problem with Tint. As you can see from the screenshots below it tends to divide the first task panel into two rather than create a new task panel for each task.

My panel is 1000 pixels long, so I defintely have enough room for more than one task panel (or whatever they're called).

@ Mark76:

It's not an error- it's the panel mode. Tint is putting windows from one workspace on one area of the bar. Try changing panel mode from "multi_desktop" to "normal".

Mark76
September 23rd, 2008, 04:06 PM
Ah yes, that worked.

I think I got a bit confused because I have it so perfectly blended into the background that if I go to a desktop with no windows open it doesn't appear to be running there.

Hey, letting you guys know tint development is active again and bugs are being squashed and new features being added.

For example, the "window title not updating" bug has been fixed. That and a couple of other bugs.

There is a repository containing the latest svn builds. You can find it here: https://launchpad.net/~killeroid/+archive/ppa

Hi guys, im new in the forum, and sorry about my english, spanish is my native language ^^.
I installed tint, and im using the Vorta theme. The only thing is that, the tasks don't flash if something is happening, like when i chat, and somebody talks to me, it keeps en the same color and i don't know if somebody talked to me or not. Is there any solution to this? Thank you

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 (http://www.visibilityacceleration.com) &
tint &
exec openbox-session

you can also use "apwal" set to the clock click for launchers. i already removed mine so no screen shots of that.

exit-options script:


#!/bin/bash

zenity --question --title="Exit Options" --text="Make your selection" --cancel-label="Shutdown" --ok-label="Log Out"
