This project aims to continue the development of tint2, port it to C++, make it safer against crashes, and have it use XCB instead of Xlib.
How is this different from tint2?
It shouldn't be much different from tint2 from a user's point of view at this stage. The focus is mostly on having a cleaner, more robust codebase.
How stable is it?
Pretty stable. I use it daily and I haven't seen issues in a while, but if you happen to find any, please file a bug.
Is it packaged for my Linux distribution?
.rpmpackages are available at jmc-88.github.io/tint3.
- There's a user-contributed package for Arch Linux in AUR, tint3-cpp-git.
- You can easily rebuild your own
.rpmpackage through CPack. Check the build instructions at README.source.md for more info.
- Other distributions: please build and install it manually.
How do I build it?
Please refer to README.source.md.
