CAW!!! CAW is a easily customizable taskbar written in Python. Dependencies -- libxcb 1.2 xcb-proto 1.4 xcb-util 0.3.4 xpyb 1.1 cairo 1.8.8 pango 1.24.5 Building --------- python setup.py build Install -------- python setup.py install Configuration ----------------- A sample config is provided: /etc/xdg/caw/config.py Copy this file to: $HOME/.config/caw/config.py for more information on widgets and configuration settings: http://caw.milkbox.net Running -------- caw *** Development Notes *** Running from the Build Directory (GIT) ---------------------------------------- 1. export your PYTHONPATH to use the development path (where arch is your architecture (i686 / x86_64) export PYTHONPATH=$SRC/caw/build/lib.linux-<arch>-2.6 2. build caw. python setup.py build 3. execute 'caw' or directly run your configuration file. bin/caw or python $HOME/.config/caw/config.py Make sure if you make modifications to your source you rebuild it. I normally leave one terminal open to the <src> directory then run: python setup.py build && python $HOME/.config/caw/config.py Notes -- I tried as much as possible to use the XPYB implementation but there are some things (such as cairo drawing) that cannot be done on the Python side using XCB. The choice to use XCB was two-fold: to learn xcb and to use something that is predicted to be the new xlib (maybe?). Anyways, I am using openbox, it relies on pango which in-turn relies on cairo so that is OK.
