Summary: OBPager is a simple pager dockapp designed for use with netwm-compliant WM
OBPager is a simple pager dockapp designed for use with netwm-compliant window managers like OpenBox. OBPager shows a miniature representation of the windows on a virtual desktop, as well as the desktop number. Clicking on an OBPager requests a switch to that desktop by the window manager. OBPager is very lightweight, requiring only glibc++ and Xlib; no Gnome or KDE necessary, thank you very much. The general rationale is that if you are running something like OpenBox, you don't want all that extra baggage anyway. Unlike other pagers, OBPager is designed to manage a single virtual desktop, so it is expected that you will run multiple instances of the applet-- one for each virtual desktop. This was done intentionally, since it looks better, IMNSHO, and it eats up what is otherwise wasted real estate in the dock/slit. If you don't like that, then change it, or use a different pager.
