Window Managers "dwm is a dynamic window manager for X. It manages windows in tiled and floating layouts. Either layout can be applied dynamically, optimizing the environment for the application in use and the task performed. It is the little brother of wmii." And version 4.9 has been released.

Dwm 4.9 is just as perfect as version 4.7 was, but with more features. It is now easier to set up dual screen with the DEFGEOM values. I can't imagine ever going back to pure floating environments now.

Don't be afraid of recompiling source it takes to seconds and config.h is really easy to understand.

Actually the source is so transparent that hacking it and making room for a dzen2 bar or something similar is straightforward, even for non-programmer like me.

A highly recommended piece of software

Is it possible to turn off the damn bar like in 4.7? I hate the idea of branching.

Yeah, and why is display of stdin part of a window manager? WM != info bar. I hate the idea of branching.

But it sucks less, indeed.

I'm running CentOS 5.1 with the latest updates.
Using VM Workstation 6 on a Windows 2003 Server (host).
VMTools is installed.

My system uses KDE and with KWin as the default WM.

In my X session, I basically killed the KWin and started DWM. Started reading the man of DWM and trying the key combos (Mod1-J, Mod1-K...etc).

Then it crashed on me. Is there anyway for me to capture some debug output or error output from DWM and see what's going on?
