Thanks - I finally had the chance to check these out.

It took me a long time to find where to make these changes, but it's now looking really nice. For the record (and I'll add it to the wik):

Open panel settings (e.g. right clicking on the "desktops" part of the panel)
-> choose Panel Applets tab
-> from the list, choose "Task Bar (Window List)"
-> click edit
-> to get just the icons against the background of the panel, select both "Icons only" and "Flat buttons"
-> "Show tooltips" and "Show windows from all workspaces" also available here.



There are still a few small advantages I see in tint2 (or maybe I haven't found the LXPanel settings yet) but overall LXPanel is now my favorite panel. For the record, tint2 still wins on these points:
As for being lighter, Marty is right - completeness is more important, since LXPanel is already light.

Thanks for your fantastic work!

Chris

Yes, one can choose 'Show only icons' and also 'Show windows from all workspaces'.

Your first point should be there, if I understand what you are saying.  Select Icons Only and Show Tooltips.

We don't have the click to raise in the Pager right now, but I know that is fairly widely implemented.  Should look at.

If anything there is more pressure to be complete than light.  Most of the feedback is of the form why don't you have this Gnome feature yet.

As always, please feel free to put your system together from whatever pleases you.
