xmonad-log-applet

xmonad-log-applet is for Xmonad users who find the GNOME or Xfce panel useful. The applet will show the active workspaces, the title of the selected window or whatever information you send it from your xmonad.hs.

xmonad-log-applet was originally written by Adam Wick, you can get more details on the old website.

Installation

There are two pieces of setup you'll need to get this working, assuming you are already running Xmonad within GNOME or Xfce:

  • An xmonad.hs setup file that will send properly-formatted information to D-Bus. You can use this xmonad.hs as an example; obviously, feel free to change the colours to match your tastes.

  • The panel applet. You can either get the current stable build as a tarball, or pull the latest version from the git repository: git clone git://github.com/alexkay/xmonad-log-applet.git

The applet supports GNOME 2, GNOME 3 and Xfce 4 panels, just pass --with-panel=X to ./configure when compiling, where X is one of gnome2, gnome3 or xfce4.

If you are compiling from a git clone, you should run ./autogen.sh instead of ./configure.

FAQ

  • GHC 7.x cannot compile DBus from Hackage, what should I do?

    You need to rename Exception to OldException in Internal.hsc. See this blog post for instructions.

  • How to add applets to the GNOME3 panel?

    You need to hold the Alt key when right-clicking the panel.
