Re: Looking for nice, small display manager
Herewidth testifying: My favorite WM (so far) is 'icewm-gnome'.
It's main assets to me:
- it is small, clean and fast
- it's panel shows up to 3 little graphical squares showing system activities:
a) system load
b) LAN load
c) online load
- Ctrl-ESC (or mouse-Right) shows main menu
- Ctrl-Alt-<Left|Right> moves easily through my screens
- Ctrl-Alt-<1 .. 0> switches to the Nth screen
- Alt-Tab moves through my windows w/in one screen
- a tiny panel icon shows a letter symbol turning green on new mail
On my AMD-100 MHz PC, 128 MB RAM, I extended this WM from 4 to 12
screens in order to separate different activities more easily.
My main drawback: So far, I did not look for a good config program, I
did it manually, mainly by editing the text files in
Icons of newly installed programs (e.g. "opera.xpm") should be copied to
The digital panel clock looks a bit ugly to me but does its job.
If anybody knows a usefull configuration program, this nice WM would
sure get some more customers.
