Pantheon Lite is a fork of elementary OS's Pantheon DE, replacing their gala window manager and compositor with openbox and picom, as well as wingpanel with wingpanel-standalone (autohide; dropped gala dependent features).

See a brief demonstration on YouTube.

My custom openbox rc, menu, and autostart configurations are included in the package, but not installed by default (they may be copied to ~/.config/openbox/).

Also, relevant dotfiles.

In order to clean-chroot build this package, you will first need to (clean-chroot) build it's AUR dependencies: pantheon-workarounds and wingpanel-standalone-git; then preinstall them when building, such as:

makechrootpkg -c -r $CHROOT -I ../path/to/pantheon-workarounds/pantheon-workarounds-*-any.pkg.tar.xz -I ../path/to/wingpanel-standalone-git/wingpanel-standalone-git-*-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Where * represents the version of each package.

Update: If your next session after upgrading looks ugly; it may just be that picom (formerly compton) is not running. I have removed it from the gnome session file. The compositor has always been an optional thing, which I often find myself killing to free more resources.

I have newly included an openbox autostart config file that should initiate picom if it is installed.

Still on the fence about downgrading picom from a dependency to an optdepends.
