Hi, about two months ago I created a thread asking for some help installing DWM to freeBSD 13 in a virtual machine. My main issue at that point was that I didn't have X running properly.
I've come back and finally installed FreeBSD to hardware and I've gotten a bit farther this time. I've...
This is for the RES (resident memory) RAM usage of window managers (from my computer in August 2021). The top command was used to get these numbers.

I'm curious because it's a pretty unique combination with Wayland on FreeBSD. I've taken a look from time to time but never tried it myself (and I have to admit that I'm not even running FreeBSD yet, because I wanted to wait for "13" to give it a first spin on my new laptop).
For me the...
I thought id give the dwm window manager a try,
im using i3wm at the moment
There is a dwm package but to change dwm's config you have to edit the source code and then compile it
Has anyone tried the dwm pkg and if you use the pkg i guess it means you cant change the config

and also if there is a complete guide to dwm (or i3) themes and patches that would be nice.
Also my last testing with freebsd was with freebsd 13 and kde plasma i installed every...

The following are sufficient to install the programs for a running Desktop system: x11/xorg, x11/xdm and your chosen window manager. If you're not using a graphical desktop login...
I am trying to set the background to my fresh awesome window manager running on a raspberry pi V2.

Not sure if this is a configuration issue, or if there is legitimately something wrong.
1) Installed Xorg no problems. Default window manager boots and works as intended.
2) Built awesome window manager. No errors on build.
3) Configured .xinitrc as such:

Ok, I have been browsing this forum (and others) looking for a solution to my problem, but I didn't find anything relevant, so maybe someone will be able to help me out. Like the title suggests, I have some issues with the "vicious" module for using widgets in the Awesome Window Manager.
I can't stand people who claim their thing is so well documented when it's not. I read all the awesome documentation and after spending almost a whole day with this frustrating thing I can't even get a simple application to run. I can type firefox3 from the terminal and it runs but I can't...
