Re: tilers unite!

I agree with xor in that tiling only works in some situations and for me they are outnumbered by the ones where proper tiling is in conflict with the programs I use.

My first tiling experience was with dwm which I am still fond of for its cheer minimalism but its fundamentalism collide with too many programs. Musca is the one I think worked best of the ones I tried.

For now I have settled for pywo-supported Openbox. Does that make me a tiler or some sort of heretic?

Some programs opening new windows for user interaction were not handled gracefully as far as my memory serves. I remember dwm and/or those pop-up windows ending up in some sort of self-oscillation. The stance of the suckless people was that this was not their problem, it was caused by others not adhering to whatever standard was cited.

All from memory...

No, I don't remember which programs were affected but  it must have been something I wanted to use.

Most stuff from suckles is great I think. I use dmenu daily (and whish it was possible to do that on W7 at work too) and surf on a regular basis.

Re: tilers unite!

pwyo?  is that another python tiling addon for openbox? 

iirc, there's pytile (? pytyle?  pytiler?  something like that) too.

Re: tilers unite!

We've had this sort of tiler gathering thread before, haven't we?
