Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

I'm lurking as well.  You're good at providing teasers, one thing I suggest is trying to keep your posts structured very parallel-like to each other so they're easy to browse and compare.  I think you are to some extent already.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

seems it's not all in a .config file somewhere big_smile

really good review, i liked to read it. also really nice how evilwm (by accident?) paves the way for the tiling WMs you're going to be looking at later. great great great. and evilwm looks like a nice WM too!

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

I'd post to let you know I'm lurking but, in doing that, do I not then cease to be a lurker? big_smile

A brilliant read and an excellent contribution to the CB community.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Another excellent review!

These bare bones minimalist WM's look interesting but to be honest they scare me a little. lol
Sticking with Openbox for now, looking forward to the tiling WM's though, keep up the good work. wink

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Quick note to say I'm still here too!

I might have to give evilwm a go - I like the way you described it as 'feels like a tiler'.  I'm kind of loving tiling right now, so be interested to see if this 'floats my boat' (pun intended).

On a side note - thanks for all the hard work.  Just 'cos people are lurking, doesn't mean they do not appreciate the effort smile

Getting the post count up. wink

I'm really enjoying this thread and looking forward to whatever comes next...
Like the look of evilwm, but it's the name that makes me want to try it.

Keep up the good work 2ManyDogs! I envy your quest.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@2Dog

Would be better to suggest using ~/.evilwmrc instead of using the "executable + variables approach". Keeps things cleaner (I personally dislike seeing long lines in htop). Also saves time when you want to play with different settings, especially for those who don't rely on ~/.xinitrc

Probably stated in one of the guides you linked, but still thought I'd mention it.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^Ah, I see.
I'm not on my netbook (only remaining Debian install I have running) right now, so I can't verify. Highly probable I have a newer version from Git or something.

Edit:
A bit off-topic, but I notice many EvilWM users don't bother switching/using virtual desktops and just prefer the old fashioned Mod + Tab to switch between applications.  Part or the reason might be because ultra-spartan WMs like this don't have a workspace display, nor (as far as I know) any ability to parse workspace info to conky or dzen2. Terminal multiplexers like Screen, Tmux or Dvtm are highly useful for CLI work in this case. That way you keep all your terminal work in a single window. Maybe a topic for another thread.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@gutterslob: yeah, I was thinking about that, it would be easy to lose an app somewhere in the desktops with no display. I mentioned the desktops because they're there, but I probably would not use them either.

I'm not trying to tell people how to use these things (I don't have anywhere near enough experience with any of them). Just trying to give a little taste of each to encourage people to branch out.

Thanks for the feedback.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

I'm currious do people who use tilers (and the other lighweight WM's mentioned) do so because they have low spec/old hardware or are you running some blazingly fast super computer? wink
