Done some fixing on scripts for desktop switch, wheel now makes desktop either go up or down in terms of numbers.
Audacious script just removed the “am I running already” part in it, it will exhaust my HD with al write/remove PID every second. Also fixed icons and it will display on “playing”, “paused” and stopped.
Both script were provided by Mabox and are NOT written by me, just changed.
The panel will autohide to have max screen space available…
Napcok already fixed the found conky you see on screen.

In my case, I could set Audicious & Pyradio notifications just within @napcok Network Conky… instead of setting in tint2 panel because my panel is running out enough space to monitor so many notifications (including your great weather full script… :slight_smile: ) Still working in the brewery and emptying all beer tank valves :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Yes I will in the correct section. But don’t expect major changes and again, these are my own preferences.

Hello @muzqs and welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Just out of curiosity, why did you replace Tint2 with the XFCE panel?
Is something missing in Tint2?

Something wrong…

:slight_smile: probably wallpaper from windows bug

Hi @napcok,

Thanks for the welcome.
I am using xfce4 panel because I am using a genmon script for my vpn. The green dot turns red when my vpn is not on. It also shows my public location with ‘ipgeo’. And when i click the dot, speedtest-cli with yad shows the speed of the connection.

I have not yet looked into how to add a script to tint2, to do the same.

Though i think tint2 suits better then xfce4 panel. The xfce4-panel has limitations using with openbox.

At the moment I know my way around better with xfce4-panel.
Soon to check out tint2.
Mabox encourage to explore further.

small clarification scrot.

Background generated with magic tool.

At the top are separate panels, with their settings.
I tried to respect the mabox layout. Like the side menu panels. (jstools)

On the bottom right a panel with shortcuts to the most fav music streams, played with audacious.
This panel is set to auto-hide

The bottom panel displays track info from audacious.

The last picom .conf helped me a lot to be able to get the panels like this.

It’s easy to become an artist with da mabox tools . . . .

Very tempting to play around.

I figgert that i only can generate backgrounds with only one monitor active.
