What WM are you using?


#41

I moved from XFCE to XMonad because I knew how to write haskell, and haskell is a cool language to configure something with.

However, XMonad has annoying bugs with regard to floating windows, and it doesn’t render unicode characters properly in title bars.

I want to move to another window manager, but I am overwhelmed by the number of windows managers.

Yabar looks nice! I’ll give it a try. I also use Polybar, mostly because it was so easy to setup.


#43

CWM on the desktop, SpectrWM on the chromebook. I’ll eventually get around to trying Stump and HerbstLuft.


#44

yabar looks really nice! any xbps template file around here ? :slight_smile:


#45

Poll closed. Thanks for voting, it was interesting to see what you guys/gals were/are using and why.
I’m staying on awesome, though :wink:


#46

In what mode do you use conky? For some reason regular in floating mode loads one core for 100%. so I’m forced to use it as dock.

That explains it, thanks. I’m using it as a floating window.

Just found this, https://www.gilesorr.com/wm/table.html


#50

Only just signed up to the forum,so didn’t get to vote, but I use Fluxbox regularly, been using it for some years now.

When it isn’t the distros choice, I use Openbox if it is installed already, else I’ll install my favourite. :slight_smile:

@Montecristo see my PR #13511 for pypanel :bat:

xfwm pleb here :grin:


#53

I eventually replaced xmonad and xmobar with i3 and polybar.
i3 and polybar are the best setup I’ve found so far.
I might replace polybar with i3bar and i3blocks in the future if polybar turns out to be buggy.

I am presently using icewm and ROX-Filer for my desktop pseudo-environment. However, this was a “get it working now so I can earn money today” kind of decision. I have future ambitions to explore alternatives; i3 currently catches my fancy. I have previous experience with ion and xmonad, so i3 is right up my alley.


#55

I migrated from xmonad to i3, and i3 is a lot more polished than xmonad.

If you want something that works, choose i3 and i3bar.
polybar is more buggy than i3bar.
