A script for BE::Shell by
The script displays the current workspace number inside a monitor icon.
The archive includes a monitor icon you can resize, and other ones already scaled ( 60 x 60, 48 x 48, 32 x 32 ).
- Download the archive, extract the folder, and move it to your be.shell scripts dir ( on kubuntu: ~/.kde4/share/apps/be.shell/scripts/ ,
while on certain distributions the path might be ~/.kde4/share/apps/be.shell/scripts/ )
If the scripts folder is missing, create it.
- Open a terminal inside the same dir of the script, and give it permissions to be executable: chmod +x workspace.sh
- Create an applet in your be.shell's config, with the following attributes:
Remember: the path in Exec must be the same where you placed the script!
- Add the applet to the Applets list of a panel of your choice.
- Reload the config
Further options are available through the script: you can change font color, padding, or the icon.
You can also resize the monitor.png icon to the size you prefer( with gimp or converseen).
Just remember to edit the other variables, as explained in the workspace script.
In case you use it in a panel with other applets, edit you BE::Shell's theme, adding:
padding-left: 10px /* just as an example*/
padding-right: 10px /* same as over*/
