Bug#199864: ITP: kahakai -- a highly customisable and scriptable window manager



Package: wnpp
Version: unavailable; reported 2003-07-03
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : kahakai
  Version         : 0.2.1
  Upstream Author : The Kahakai Team
* URL             : http://kahakai.sf.net/
* License         : GPL, v2 or later
  Description     : a highly customisable and scriptable window manager

 Kahakai is a fork of the Waimea window manager, adding a number of
 new features, most notably scripting support.  It uses Swig, so a
 number of backend scripting languages are possible, though only the
 Python bindings are currently working.
 .
 It still supports the features that made Waimea so neat:
  * Xft-based font rendering, for very nice-looking text.
  * Support for both viewports and virtual desktops.
  * A very flexible `style' system, including support for Blackbox themes.
  * Pseudo-transparent window decorations.

It currently only builds with libswig1.3 and swig1.3 1.3.17, unfortunately,
neither of which are in sid anymore.  See
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=753568&group_id=1645&atid=101645
for more information.  Test packages are available with this sources.list line:

Source is available from the same place.
