Bmpanel2 Config Tool uploaded

It is in the git repository. You can find it using this path: extra/py

There are few files:

  • – A future bmpanel2 python library, there will be basic functions for parsing config/theme format and interacting with bmpanel2 through the python script.
  • bmpanel2cfg – A PyGTK python script, the config tool itself, uses module.
  • – Draft version of the python distutils script. Installs both the module and the executable.

You can try out this tool using the script directly (./bmpanel2cfg) or install it first using the standard way (python install) and then just run directly (bmpanel2cfg).

There are few caveats however, for example script currently will work only with single instance of bmpanel2 and there are still no support for multiple launch bars (support for this also lacks in the panel, so it makes sense).

Anyway, just try it out and say what you think. Bug reports -> here <-.

Don’t forget to backup your bmpanel2rc 😉


Bmpanel2 Config Tool update

It’s almost there. All functions are complete, but I need to test it a bit more for rare usage cases before uploading to public. It looks like this:

bmpanel2cfgAll changes in the tool are immediately reflected on the panel. And as far as I’ve tested it, this amount of reconfigure signals doesn’t burst the CPU up, so it should be really nice addition to the panel. I’ll try to upload it in few days, keep watching blog for updates.
