Openbox Suite - collection of system indicators and utilities

This is really interesting project…

Openbox Suite (obsuite) is a light and modulable complement to Openbox and other minimalistic window managers, which often requires packages from other desktop environments. It relies on Python and Qt, with little dependencies.

Obsuite provides a basic set of tools which make it easy to manage or monitor volume, network connection, batteries, backlight, microphone and temperature. Moreover, it includes a great application launcher, an exit splash screen and a basic Bluetooth devices manager (to do; full-fledged manager).

It is highly customizable and use Numix’s icon set. With OpenBox, tint2 and ObSuite, you’ll get a solid start for a light and beautiful custom desktop environment.

Installation:

yay obsuite-git

For easier testing you may add some commands to the top of Left Sidepanel:

echo -e "^sep(OpenBox Suite Test)\nOBSuite Preferences,obsuite --preferences\nOBSuite launcher, obsuite --run\nOBSuite splash,obsuite --splash\nOBSuite quit,obsuite --quit" >> $HOME/.config/mabox/places-prepend.csv

Nice ! I test it now and use it partly to replace the xfce-battery icon. Load obsuite in the autostart file to get it started at login.

OBsuite loaded in system tray :slight_smile: :
