Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@Dogdude: you seem to be getting more thorough with each review. so much so that your Openbox-review looks pale in comparison to your coverage of flwm smile
however, i think we've covered Openbox to quite some extent on these forums already.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ I did not try be as thorough with openbox -- I think we are all pretty familiar with that one. hmm Maybe if I have time I'll go back and add a little more about the config files.

We'll see if I can keep up the standard I set with flwm -- it took a while, and I have to work today and Friday...

(edit) plus honestly, I like flwm and jwm more than I like openbox, and I'm trying to encourage people to branch out a little... smile

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ yeah, i agree. well, in essence, all i'm saying is 'really thorough post on flwm, really worth the read for anyone considering trying this WM out. i'm sure the rest of your coverage will be just as interesting, and i look forward to reading it!' smile

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^dwm isn't really that "elitist"
It's all pretty sensible if you spend a bit of time reading the documentation. The rebuilding and patching (for the most part) is pretty straightforward as well.

Now StumpWM and Sawfish ... those are elitist.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

I was joking about the elitist attitude -- I've built (and rebuilt) a few of the arch tilers; if I can do it anyone can...

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Thanks again PackRat. I'm actually using mydefcon_3 from tenr.de as my default now, so I'd agree those are some nice styles!

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@theflux. grouping/tabbing is one of what i like most about fluxbox. I know our elder statesman here on cbforums can tell yall much more about tweaking and configuring and ahh...
anyway @2many keep going. Great thing you're doing here cool can't wait for the tilers.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

See, that's why I wrote the disclaimer. Fluxbox has so many features I knew I'd miss someone's favorite hmm

Having fun with pekwm right now. Lots of nice built-in key bindings..

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

I always see Fluxbox appears in our screenshot section and I like what the people do with it. I think one of the masters here are @Elder & @vrkalak.

And I have to say due to the "over options" I like the simplicity of Scrotwm and still can tweak the things I need to be productive instead of general appearance. Though I think you have to live long enough in Fluxbox to make it entirely yours.
