Still to try wmaker and a couple of others.
I haven't found a window manager fulfills all the little quirks that I
want a window manager to perform yet.
I've also tried many window managers. Which little quirks do you
I find that little things can really make a big difference.
When I use ALT-Tab to cycle thro all open apps, I would like to see all
apps in a list or a row with the current selected app highlighted. I saw
one window manager doing it just how I like it but don't remember which
I would like to have focus when I click on any part of a window, not
just the title bar. It's taking a while to get used to enlightenment,
since I can use the mouse to select text in a window without actually
selecting the window, and then when I press delete, it deletes something
in the other window, not the text. Sounds weird, and it is!
I'd also like to have a key combination that will call up the gnome
log-out dialog. Used to be ALT+F1 in metacity in my original
installation but I've lost it since.
I also want to restrict the desktop to just one instance, I don't use
this feature. I keep finding mis-clicks with the mouse or a fumble on
the keyboard (does happen!) throws me into another desktop.
The list would go on but I don't want to bore you,
