Tint is a simple panel/taskbar intentionally made for openbox3, but should
also work with other window managers. The taskbar includes transparency and
color settings for the font, icons, border, and background. It also supports
multihead setups, customized mouse actions, and a built-in clock. Tint was
originally based on ttm code. Since then, support has also been added
for a battery monitor and system tray.
The goal is to keep a clean and unintrusive look with lightweight code and
compliance with freedesktop specification.
