Name

lxpanel.hints - Configuration hints for lxpanel plugins
 

Description

This text collects some background information for configuration of plugins available for lxpanel(1).
The templates below use keywords boolean, integer, and string to denote the expected type of value for each instance. Currently boolean supports only 0 and 1 values. A few exceptions below are using explicit values in order to clarify the common usage. The plugins are introduced by name in a semi-random fashion. In practice a mixture of different stanzas Plugin are written in the order that they are to produce in the actual panel on the desktop.
