Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Dunno whether it's worth mentioning here - but I'm using slim, and am using a cunning way to switch between openbox and scrotwm at the mo...

I set up two user accounts, both mine, and both with the same password (so I don't get confused), but a different username.  The first one I left as the standard openbox as it came when I installed #! , the second, I edited /home/user/.xsession to start scrotwm.

So I login as 'Marc' I get openbox, I log in as 'forthy' I get scrotwm.  Simples smile

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ +1 too ...


Forgot to mention, I might learn summin from hiz adventures through all the Wm's too. Which is great ... don't mind trying to share what I learn along the way, is great when able to learn something from someone else's gnu/nix exploits too. Am certainly interested in 2Many's findings on which wm's he tries n likes and why. Think iz one of the many great things about #!, the community of people here and gnu/Linux the world over for that matter. Hoping 2Many has a great time and learns alot that serves to enrich him n others along the way, If it's something he feels like pursuing that is.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

So what are the 30 wms (actually the other 28)?

openbox, jwm, flwm, fluxbox, icewm, fvwm, pekwm, e17, Window Maker, evilwm, blackbox, AfterStep, dwm, wmii, scrotwm, stumpwm, ratpoison, awesome, xmonad, Oroborus.

That's 20. What will the other 10 be?

Great project!

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Pretty good guesses (and thanks for the suggestions!) I don't have a list yet. flwm tomorrow, fluxbox on Thursday, probably pekwm/icewm on Friday/Saturday, but there are a lot more tilers than you mentioned -- catwm, snapwm, dminiwm, monsterwm, I3, herbstluftwm, wmfs2; wait a minute, maybe I don't have 30 hmm Does tmux count (imagine me looking thoughtful like my avatar)?

^ you can use tmux as a WM, so it counts for me.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

This was an awesome idea 2Many! I am really looking forward to your future posts. I haven't left openbox sense installing #! so it will be interesting to see what else there is

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@2ManyDogs: aewm sounds bizarre and self-aware and intriguing. Great idea to work through 30 of these window managers. I'm sure you (and all of us) will learn a lot and this will be an awesome resource!

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@2ManyDogs..  Great post, have seen 'scrotwm' and 'awesome' mentioned frequently and have been interested but not brave enough to try myself.  Look forward to the following the rest of you journey. big_smile

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

nice project- but one thing: could you possibly create a list of links in the first post that direct to the posts about the managers? With all the comments it'll be a hard time finding stuff in the thread, thanks!
