I didn't notice a thread just for dwm ( http://dwm.suckless.org/ ), so thought I'd start one. Seems like a very nice window manager once you get it set up the way you want it. Might take a while to get it set up properly though. There's a good tutorial on customization at the site: http://dwm.suckless.org/customisation/ Also found the info on how to launch it and set up the bar with custom info using xsetroot interesting. See bottom of the page for an example: http://dwm.suckless.org/tutorial The one thing I found strange when I was running it was that when I brought up conky in it, conky reported my CPU usage at 100%. Didn't noticed that when just looking at top without conky up though. Anyone run across a situation like this? It certainly seems to be a very lightweight window manager and appears to use less memory than other popular lightweight window managers like fluxbox and openbox, but I was a bit concerned over the reported CPU usage. Either it doesn't like running with conky or I have something in my setup not properly handled. I also really like the way dmenu (http://tools.suckless.org/dmenu) integrates so nicely with this window manager. Looks even better than it does in other window managers. It just blends in well. Still working on changing my config.h file. I did like the suggestion on using the Windows key in place of the alt key (http://dwm.suckless.org/customisation/windows_key). That way applications like SciTE (my favorite editor) can make use of the alt key combinations. If anyone has any customization or set up tips to share on dwm, please post. I'm just gettings started with it, but I'd be interested to hear what others have done with it.
