…no, I did not begin to stutter 😉

I just tried once again Awesome Window Manager. And I have to admit – it’s brilliant. Awesome is a tiling Window Manager. It was based on dwm at the beginning – but now  it is rewritten and many nice features are added.

Awesome has relatively easy to understand configuration file through which you can tweak it to your liking. You can change keyboard shortcuts, colors, fonts etc. And still you can take an advantage of tiling Window Managers – that is – window manager is taking care of the placement of the desktop windows. I find it very relieving and… hm – “Zen”-like.

I used one of the first versions of Awesome in the past – and I’m glad to notice the quick development of it. Awesome is small and very quick (at least here and for me!) but in the same time it supports basic “eye-candy. With the help of xcompmgr, one can acquire shadows and if you set the background with the help of feh + configure your urxvt and xorg, you can also acquire real transparency in terminal.

Today I will just share some screen shots I made. I would also like to share some links with you, I found helpful while editing my .awesomerc. So, here it goes.

Nice introduction to Awesome especially for Arch Linux users

Interesting tread about Awesome on Ubuntu forum

and last but not least – fantastic Wiki by Awesome WM users and developers!

If you are interested in my .awesomerc – hmmm…it’s still “the work in  progress” – but, here is the link to pdf with it:

Enjoy – and Joyful, Peaceful Easter!
