I've packaged a new built of fbpanel for VL 5.9 and VL 5.9.1, a panel application for use with any of the minimalist window managers that don't have one. We have a number of such window managers in our repo, of course. The version which was in our repo doesn't work. This package does.
Package Size: 7K
Installed Size: 30K
fbpanel: fbpanel (lightweight GTK2-based panel)
fbpanel: fbpanel is desktop panel which provides graphical information and
fbpanel: feedback about desktop activity and allows interaction with the
fbpanel: window manager. You can run many instances of fbpanel each with its
fbpanel: own configuration.
