Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Nice work on these tilers 2ManyDogs - some of those other patches for dwm look interesting; you'll have to post your patched final in the "starting with dwm" thread.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Wow. No one else has anything to add? I know you're out there reading (or at least "viewing") -- the thread went from 9890 views to 10,071 today (10k! -- a long way to go to the 25k+ the scrotwm thread has, but I can hope...)

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

2ManyDogs, I must admit I've been "viewing" a good deal wink I even installed i3 because of you! (And to update it I borked my computer changing all the ppas to testing ... oh well big_smile ) So anyway...thanks for all this work! It's really helpful!

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Another great review, well done 2ManyDogs!

I'm am a recovering Distro Hopper and fighting the urge to install all of these WM's lol
However I'm sure I am not alone here but so far my love for Openbox has been reinforced.
There's absolutely nothing wrong with any of these other WM's and indeed I'm very curious to give a tiler a go but Openbox is my true love and she's well and truely got her claws into me.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@2Many:
Good work as always!

It might also be useful to add possible ways of getting the DWM sources:

#either
 apt-get source dwm
#or
hg clone http://hg.suckless.org/dwm

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Nice dwm and musca write-ups, Mr. 2MD
Is musca still in development? I though it died and got forked.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ you're a little ahead of me there mr. G -- I haven't written the musca review yet (unless I did it and don't remember). I don't know if it's still being developed; what did it fork to?

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^Ack. Sorry.
There was some Musca discussion going on in another forum in another tab on my browser.
Excuse my brain fart. >_<

Again, good stuff on dwm. Haven't used it much lately, but it'll probably be the one I go back to one day. It's still the king in many ways.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

@2ManyDogs

Absolutely! smile
Just because it's "dead" doesn't necessarily mean it not useful.
I mean people still use ratpoison for example and have no problem with it.
I could be wrong but dwm didn't have an update in quite some time, too.

And I'm sure there are countless of others.

Looking forward to your review of musca and perhaps herbstluftwm and maybe even subtlewm big_smile wink

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

Somehow I lost track about the great DWM review, the weekend was birthday time anyway, too much Rakija I guess. smile

Great review on that one, @2ManyWMs. I really like it. It comes second after Scrotwm for me. If it just would not be this source compiling, not because compiling is a pain, I do not get it, that I have to recompile it after making changes to the config. Maybe I will try it again, definiteley one of the best tilers for me among Scrotwm.

Re: 30 Window Managers in 30 days

^ I agree Ivan, but the compiling doesn't really bother me. As much as I like the others I've looked at, dwm is the only one (so far) that might replace scrotwm on my main machine when I'm done with the reviews.
