Notes

Monster IV

This is my most recent setup with monsterwm and it feels pretty damn nice. It’s been a long road modify things with monsterwm and/or lemonboy’s bar. I think I’ll slow things down a bit. Feel free to ask if you have something in your mind.

EDIT. I added smaller screenshot file.

applications

web: dwb
irc: weechat
file manager: ranger
editor: vim
music player: ncmpcpp

fonts

To display “icons” in the bar you should get “Stlarch_font” because “icons” are just fonts alone. I use “berry” font for terminal(s) and cure for panel which is part of artwiz fonts

scripts

Remember to add “wmrun.sh” into .xinitrc (…exec wmrun.sh) and place both statusinfo.sh and wmrun.sh into your $PATH like ~/bin

github

I use Cloudef’s personal multi-monitor monsterwm branch
$ git clone git://github.com/Cloudef/monsterwm.git

LemonBoy’s bar
$ git clone git://github.com/LemonBoy/bar.git

Cool desktop.. Can you share the script you are using for the dwb browser?

Shinryuu said about 1 year ago

Oh.. I haven’t logged in for a while. Hope you won’t kill me but here’s the script I used to make my homepage https://github.com/ok100/homepage.py :)
