Rock The wbar Dock

Filed under
Software
HowTos

wbar is a quick launch bar similar to the OSX dock. It's a lightweight and fast piece of useful eyecandy written in c++ using imlib2. While it isn't as full featured as Gnome-Do or Avant Window Manager, wbar's low overhead, speed, and efficient dependencies make it an ideal for netbooks.

Configuring wbar can be done two ways:
1. By editing the config file manually
in a terminal type:
gedit ~/.wbar

To launch wbar when manually editing the config file, use the command:
wbar -above-desk
- You can also add other startup options to the command to change the position or other variables. Consult the wbar manual for options.
