Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ thanks, I have got the startup script and wifi sorted now. Just wondering if I should be adding Xfce power manager to the startup to? And what about the alsa mixer/ volume control?

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@kri5: Why not adding the Xfce power manager, if you need it and it is very convenient, of course you could go without.

For the volume control, easy, just use alsamixer from the terminal or at least make some keybindings to access the volume with your keyboard. I do not use DWM, so I cannot be more precise but it should be similar like in Scrotwm.

I have this as keybindings to control the volume:

program[VolumeUp]     = amixer sset Master,0 1+
bind[VolumeUp]        = XF86AudioRaiseVolume
program[VolumeDown]     = amixer sset Master,0 3-
bind[VolumeDown]        = XF86AudioLowerVolume

It would be the same on DWM but the configuration is different.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@Ivanovegro..  Noob time again, I have those keybinds already in Openbox, I presume they won't work unless I specifically set them in DWM or what ever WM I'm using?

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Yes, you have to set them with the right syntax for DWM.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ Cheers, shall have to look into that then.  I'm guessing there are more scrotwm users than DWM on here, perhaps that would have been better for getting my toes wet.  lol

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Thank you for the nice review, 2MD. Very nice WM's. My distrohopping days are over(debian is the shi#!) but my WM-hopping days has just begun. You're giving an awesome lecture to the possibilities we all have to explore GNU/Linux...

Keep the sweetness coming.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@PackRat

The XF86 keys are declared in  XF86keysym.h, try adding this line to the config.h (right at the beginning)

#include <X11/XF86keysym.h>

and referring the XF86 keys as XF86XK_{FUNCTION}.

PS: I am not on my linux box right now, so I can't just try this out -- sorry if it does not work.
