Wbar-config: Tool to customize and configure Wbar

In the article where talked about Wbar, I told them that to configure this application visually you needed an application from a third person called Wbarconf.

Well apparently already Wbar It includes its own configuration tool and I had not noticed. For the record that this tool is present in Archlinux and I don't know if in Debian Testing It is included in the package of Wbar, so it would be good if they made me a Feedback about. Anyway..

We open a terminal and put:

$ wbar-conf

And we should get something like this, which is where the icons or launchers are configured:

In the next tab we can see the options to set the size and type of font, the background of Wbar, the position on the screen .. etc.

And finally we have the tab where we configure the effects: Icon size, Effect when placing the cursor on them, Transparency of the icons and the background ... etc.

Please note: Please if anyone is using Wbar en Debian Testing or any other distribution that will tell me if the package is found wbar-conf, to add the data in the article.

    wbar has never included a configuration GUI: Yes, in fact, those images you put are from the GUI that I have to install to graphically configure wbar: S

      Well, in Archlinux I only installed wbar and I have the GUI that you see in the article. If wbar includes it, or if it was included by the package maintainers in Arch I don't know. That is why I asked for a Feedback about it in other distributions.

    In advance, very good website, good work.

    I have had the question for a while now but I have not found a solution. I have installed wbar in two distributions (can't remember which ones now), but it always stays below windows, I would like it to give the option to stay above maximized windows. At some point I used a parameter similar to something like this: »- above-desk», which I thought would solve the problem for me, but it was not what I wanted, I think it was in case it was not shown on the desktop and had nothing to do with it. so it will be displayed above maximized windows. 🙂

      Hmm, I've never needed Wbar to be above the windows. I would have to investigate 🙂

        Well, if I see it useful, since if I have maximized windows and I need to access a wbar link, I would have to minimize the windows to be able to access it. It doesn't seem practical to me.

    chlesdwin, I once had that question too, I configured everything I could and unfortunately wbar doesn't have that option. It is the cost of being the lightest GNU / Linux dock.

    Hello, I am using LMDE and wbar-config is not there… also my pc is 64 bits so there is no package for my architecture = (

      Welcome antolieztsu:
      If you don't mind, you can create your configuration manually inside the ~ / .wbar file. The file should have something like this:

      i: /usr/share/wbar/iconpack/wbar.osx/osxbarback.png
      c: wbar --bpress --above-desk --vbar --nofont --pos right --isize 32 --idist 5 --nanim 3 --jumpf 0.900000 --balfa 23 --falfa 84
      t: /home/elav/.fonts/ubuntu-font-family/Ubuntu-R/10

      i: /home/elav/.icons/Faenza/apps/96/Thunar.png
      c: thunar
      t: Thunar

      i: /home/elav/.icons/Faenza/apps/96/gnome-terminal.png
      c: terminal
      t: Terminal

      The most important thing is the first 3 lines, the rest are the pitchers ...

        Thanks for the welcome ... you know in the end I didn't load well = S I got errors, so I opted for docky ... good thing that in Linux we have multiple options.
