RE: need a taskbar

I'd really like to try OpenBox (currently using XFCE) but as far as I can see, it does not come with a taskbar, or whatever you like to call it. Is anyone aware of a standalone taskbar without Gnome or KDE dependencies?


lxpanel: http://sourceforge.net/projects/lxpanel/

fbpanel: http://fbpanel.sourceforge.net/

Personally, I am looking at the combination of Openbox and fbpanel.

This should be much "lighter" than XFCE, and it should run GTK2 applications just fine even on older, resource-limited hardware.
