Package:Awesome (Window Manager)
Awesome (Window Manager)
Awesome is a highly configurable window manager. It handles both tiling and floating layouts. You can go into a fine-grained customization to suit your needs with Lua scripting.
- A physical monitor plugged into your computer.
- A window.
- A tag is something like a workspace or a desktop that you may find in other window managers. However, it is slightly more flexible as you can attach a client to multiple tags. Moreover, each screen has its own range of tags.
|dbus||Enables awesome to receive signals from dbus (eg. to trigger events on hotplug)|
|doc||Includes extra HTML documentation (using doxygen)|
|gnome||Enables you to use awesome as gnome's window manager (See. Quickly Setting up Awesome with Gnome)|
Just emerge it :
root # emerge -a awesome
Then you can add this line to you
~/.xinitrc exec ck-launch-session dbus-launch --sh-syntax --exit-with-session awesome
xinit to launch awesome. You can also configure a display manager instead, but this is not covered in this document.
