I am using
awesome 3.5.5-1 and awesome-cinnamon from the Arch Linux AUR. The
awesome-cinnamon package basically just creates the
.session files to load
awesome wm as the window manager. This is almost perfect for me, but I would like to experiment with using the
cinnamon panel in addition to or instead of the
wibox, because the
cinnamon panel has attractive icons for the audio, wifi and power controls.
I can't seem to find any way to start the
cinnamon panel. I am left thinking that the
cinnamon panel must be part of
cinnamon's window manager. It seems from googling that there used to be a program
cinnamon-panel, but these don't seem to exist anymore. Does anyone know of a way to get this working?
