    [SOLVED] fluxbox-like toolbar that works alongside compiz?


    I have been using Fluxbox as my window manager for awhile, but can no longer resist the call of the wobbly windows . Is there a lightweight fluxbox-like toolbar that can be run alongside Compiz? Any insight would be appreciated.
    Alternatively, has anyone found a way to get fluxbox and Compiz to play nice together? The Fluxbox wiki leads me to think this is impossible, but stranger things have happened.

    Fluxbox and Compiz are both window managers, so no, you can't use both together.

    As for toolbars, I assume you mean a panel? There are many options.

    LXPanel - LXDE.org
    PyPanel
    PerlPanel - Summary [Savannah]
    BMPanel’s page
    fbpanel

    what I thought, but worth asking, I guess.

    as for the list, thanks. That was what I was looking for.
