Dwm window-panel

Hello,

I consider using dwm or openbox on my laptop. I generally like dwm, but I don't like that the windows are shown on the same panel as the the "menu". I want a panel for windows and the taskbar (ex.: pidgin im icon) alone. This should be in the bottom. In the top I want a "panel" with conky-like information (the "menu-entries" should also be in this panel). Can all this be done with dwm (dmenu?), or do I have to use tint2, pypanel etc.?

Hi Fleet
but I don't like that the windows are shown on the same panel as the the "menu"
I don't think that you can change that. Maybe if you set the same color with this of the DWM's panel but maybe a lot of things cannot also be seen with that (ex dmenu).
I want a panel for windows and the taskbar (ex.: pidgin im icon)
Xfce4-panel. Maybe already on your system as a dependency of a package like thunar :)
This should be in the bottom
If you want DWM's panel on the bottom on config.h file change from true to false this line:
Code:
static const Bool topbar            = True;     /* False means bottom bar */
In the top I want a "panel" with conky-like information?
You can do that setting the possition of conky
Is a menu for dwm that shows all your programs in the same bar with the DWM's menu.
