A CDE-like panel emulator written in Tcl/Tk
Version: 1.6TkPanel is a panel software, greatly inspired by the CDE panel, with some other features; it is basically used to call other programs, that can be configured by the user. Thus, with TkPanel, the programs which are more often executed can be easily called.
Operating System: Linux
TkPanel is able to lock the computer, and can run arbitrary command on the fly. It can show basic information about the computer resources (CPU and memory usage), display the time in various formats, and has a simple schedule. There is a graphical tool to config, change all its variables, add/remove buttons and sub-panels.
The user can also use TkPanel to change the page when running at some specifics Window Managers, place it at any edge of the screen (thus, really fans of TkPanel can have a few programs running at the same time!), align it at the corners, turn it into a hidden mode, and select what tools to display as buttons (choosing its place). All its functions are available through some keystrokes.
TkPanel is written on a Linux system with Tcl/Tk scripts; first to allow easy modifications being applied; second, to be executed on systems where Tcl/Tk is available.
