Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

That was a nice review, 2many. I almost missed it since it wasn't linked to in your original post(I always check back there to see if a new one is up). I now want to try evilwm. I love these barebones minimal wm's now. That's what I love about ratpoison. You log in and there's nothing but a black screen. But admittedly I'm getting a bit tired of hit two keys to initiate a keybind(c-t). I'm so used to hitting Mod+ to get where I need to go. So I think evilwm will be better suited for me. Just wish it was a tiler. Hopefully I'll come across a tiler that's barebones and doesn't use the c-t type of setup.

Thanks for keeping this going for us.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Thanks h8u. I'll add the link in the first post now. I wonder if the xbindkeys technique (check the Debian group or the Gentoo wiki I linked to see how this is done)  would work with ratpoison, or if there's any other way to modify the keybindings. I have not yet used ratpoison for more than an hour or so, so I don't know, but I would not be surprised if someone has figured out a way to make the mod key work...

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

That's a good idea. Because really that's the only thing holding the wm back from being used constantly by me.

Thanks for the tip. I'll search around and see if I can find anything.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ Thanks, I'm using a laptop with only two mouse buttons, I presume a 'middle click' would be pressing both left and right at the same time?  Sorry for asking what may appear to be a dumb question as I'm not actually on my PC at present.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ Just test it smile But yes, pressing both buttons together simulates a middle click. This doesn't always work in vanilla Debian, but it does work in #!.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^{1,2} Clicking my mouses scroll button stimulates a middle click.

Also if you are using a touch pad something like

synclient TapButton2=2 

assigns two finger tap to a middle click.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@dkeg..  You can stop your apps from overlapping your Conky by changing the margins of your desktop, thats's what i did.  I just changed the top margin to leave a gap for my Conky which runs along the top.

@2ManyDogs great thread. looking forward to the Tilers.  Sorry if it keeps getting hijacked. big_smile

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

I've just realised that I can't get the full size images in this thread (or any other) where people are using postimage.org - Just getting a 'could not connect' page.

Same if I try and go to the website itself - as though it does not exist.

This makes me sad sad

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ I see a thumbnail in the thread and when I click it, a new page opens with a larger image. When I click that, a larger version is shown.

Is something blocking postimage.org? Maybe a plug-in/add-on/extension or script/ad blocker? Or your /etc/hosts file?

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ I see the thumbnails, but when I click I get an error page hmm

As I say - also happens if I try to go direct to postimage - It's like they've vanished off of my internets!

Weird as hell.

- re the second bit - shouldn't be - I'll look...
