       · taskbar - shows a list of the managed windows (tasks)

       · pager - thumbnailed view of the desktop.

       · launchbar - buttons to quickly launch applications

       · show desktop - button to iconify or shade all windows

       · image - display an image

       · clock - show the current time and/or date

       · system tray - tray for XEMBED icons (aka docklets)

       fbpanel requires NETWM ( compliant window  manager.
       You  can  run many instances of fbpanel each with its own configuration
       (see OPTIONS below).

       Most updated info  about  fbpanel  can  be  found  on  its  home  page:


       --help -- print help message and exit.

              -- print version and exit.

       --log <number>
              -- set log level 0-5. 0 - none 5 - chatty

              -- open configuration dialog

       --profile <name>
              --  use  specified  profile. The profile is loaded from the file
              ~/.fbpanel/<name>.    If   that   fails,   fbpanel   will   load
              @DATADIR@/<name>.  No -p option is equivalent to -p default

       -h     -- same as --help

       -p     -- same as --profile

       -v     -- same as --version

       -C     -- same as --configure


       To change default settings, copy profile file to your home directory
             mkdir -p ~/.fbpanel
             cp @DATADIR@/default ~/.fbpanel
       and  edit  it.  Default  profile file contains comments and explanation
       inside, so it should be easy. For full list  of  options  please  visit
       fbpanel’s home page.
