PostPosted: Wed 07 Jan 2009, 08:31    Post_subject:  evilwm Window Manager  

Home: http://www.6809.org.uk/evilwm/
version: 1.1.0

Quote:
A minimalist window manager for the X Window System.

'Minimalist' here doesn't mean it's too bare to be usable - it just means it omits a lot of the stuff that make other window managers unusable. Here is a list of features:

* No window decorations apart from a simple 1 pixel border.
* No icons.
* Good keyboard control, including repositioning and maximise toggles.
* Solid window drags (optional - may be slow on old machines).
* Snap-to-border support (command line option).
* Virtual desktops (compile time option).
* Small binary size (even with everything turned on).


Works with rox-desktop and panels (tested with fbpanel=>showdesktop does not work).

To start, logout and type
Code:
xwin evilwm


Compiled and tested in 4.3.1.

Help file is at /usr/share/doc/evilwm and online at http://www.6809.org.uk/evilwm/usage.shtml

Whats the difference between EvilWM and BadWM?

Some of the BadWM add-ons look very useful.
http://badwm.sourceforge.net/BadSoft/

BadBar & BadBar2 = replacement for yeahlaunch?
BadMenu = replacement for 9menu?

evilwm random wallpaper with either feh or xv
http://pissedoffadmins.com/?p=663

this little script below which gets daemonized by .xinitrc at login:
Code:
#!/bin/bash

while :;do
    files=(/path/to/*.jpg /path/to/*.jpeg /path/to/*.png /path/to/*.gif)
    N=${#files[@]}
    ((N=RANDOM%N))
    randomfile=${files[$N]}
    #/usr/bin/xv -quit -root -rmode 5 $randomfile
    #/usr/bin/feh --bg-center $randomfile
    sleep 60
done

Quote:
only things you have to change are the “path to’s” and you have to uncomment either the xv line, feh line or substitute your own.

Have not use this with my puppy - but it should work.

Sub_title: evilwm update?
 

Recently tried evilwm-1.0.0 in q142..

Indeed evilwm is very minimal. The binary only uses .2% of my 512 RAM (htop) but this is somewhat offset by convenience extras (like wbar or a panel/menu) that are not quite so essential in most other light wms. Iconify doesn't work in standard evilwm (this takes some getting used to!) .. perhaps MaxieZ's patch. Virtual desktops are different as well (keybd-switch only and pagers may not display current desktop as expected).

lxpanel may be preferred to fbpanel (some issues with fbpanel's autohide, plus lxpanel's menu/run gives a nice multi-choice in a simple ui) - some plugins like pager, desk#, 'taskbar' and wincmd are fairly useless as-is (a custom profile helps to trim). aemenu and aepanel-gtk¹ work well (this panel even has some functionality as a kind of client/window list, displaying titlebar text and status markers like * not visible in evilwm's minimal decor and using parentheses to denote windows not on current desktop).

Even tried the more recent evilwm-1.1.0, but make failed Sad in my environment - was quite interested to see how the improved EWMH would relate (as well as getting rid of the soliddrag, pretty annoying to have that as default rather than a lighter outline-type).

¹ had these already as part of wmx-7 wm (aemenu is super easy to edit), dmenu could be yet another option for those so inclined.

Did the -nosoliddrag not work or meaning having it as an default setting?
