Project Information

BMPanel (bitmap panel) is a lightweight, NETWM compliant panel for X11 Window System, which contains a desktop switcher, taskbar, system tray and clock. The application is inspired by simplicity of fspanel. BMPanel has a modern look and feel, while keeping itself tiny and small.

It is written in C and has only a few dependencies, such as: imlib2, xlib, fontconfig, xrender and xcomposite extensions. Also, the panel has a few notable features:

  • BMPanel can select ARGB visuals providing, together with composite manager, a true transparency (but system tray doesn't work in composite mode).
  • BMPanel has no configuration files. Its behaviour is customized via themes.
  • Well, it is themable!

BMPanel doesn't try to be portable. It should work on a distribution with the latest Linux kernel and with the latest software (probably CVS/SVN/git versions). Supported architectures are x86 (32 bit) and x86_64 (64 bit). However, BMpanel may work on other distributions, kernels (like FreeBSD) and even architectures, but it isn't guaranteed.
