Tint2 + Trayer
In my last screenshot-post I was still using LXpanel, which is part of LXDE (something I’ve been wanting to write a review about without ever getting to it). It’s a perfectly good panel, with the added benefit of easy GUI configuration. It’s just that it looks a bit boring…even with transparency turned on.
Of course, it doesn’t have a systray, and that’s more of a problem. Lucky us, there are separate programs that don’t do anything except provide a tray.
