-Replaced NetworkManager with wicd (to use the awesome wicd-curses)
-For Time, Date and battery status, added those lines at the end of ~/.bashrc

date
echo "===================================="
echo "    Battery->"
upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0| grep -E "state|to\ full|percentage"
echo "===================================="

And now I can live without a system tray smile

Re: No system tray ftw :P

Now, ditch the pypanel and use Alt+Tab instead, and  .... live without panel AND with larger real-estate!

That's what I did, and got used to it very quickly. And then, I ditched windows decoration (apart from 1px border), too ... voila, I live with quite large monitor-estate. Of course, nobody necessarily is gonig to love such an 'anemic' setup ...

Re: No system tray ftw :P

Wat? No conkies?  wink

Seriously, I find conkies quite useful ... for example, I tend to forget rarely used Mod4 key combos, and static conky is prefect for this.

Also, a little almost-static calendar is handy too ... and number of emails ...

But, it is up to you to configure system to your liking ...

Re: No system tray ftw :P

-For my emails, calendar & weather needs -> my Android device stole the fun

-It was stil nice to check cpu & mem usage with my previous laptop but with this new Dell Latitude E5530 that comes with 8gb of ram ddr3 & a core i7 cpu there's not much action to monitor T.T

Conky and a task manager/panel would be mostly for appearance.

Re: No system tray ftw :P

My decorations are turned off as well, but I cannot live without a taskbar. How else would you close many windows without it?

mouse_right = close
