    fbpanel and lxpanel are other alternatives.

    The openbox page on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Openbox describes a few more.

    to find out how to modify those panels :

    1. read the man pages : man fbpanel
    2. find the website : http://fbpanel.sourceforge.net/docs.html
    3. look for some existing config files : locate fbpanel

    Pypanel and fbpanel, as well as many other panels, are configured through text files. Read the documentation for the panel (type "man name of the panel"" in a terminal to find out where exactly it is located).

    Other panels are tint2 (formerly tint task manager), fspanel, lxpanel, xfce4-panel, visibility (only a task list and pager), kicker, barpanel, and quite a few more.

    It depends what you want. If you are interested in a lot of applets, then a panel like pypanel or tint2 will look too simplistic for you, while xfce4-panel or kicker (the panels of Xfce and KDE respectively), fbpanel and lxpanel might satisfy you more. If you like something light(er), don't use gnome-panel, kicker and perhaps even xfce4-panel, and try lxpanel, pypanel, fbpanel, or tint2.
