Whilst on topic of window managers ....
I've been using the same old copy of Afterstep for 6-7 years now... I've
tweaked it to my liking both with config file and source changes, and I'm
quite happy with it, other than the fact that there's a niggling bug that
comes up every month or so, and I haven't been able to fix it - it seems that
occasionally, an XWindowRaiseFocus is called with a NULL parm, and AStep
crashes and dumps me out of X. I've tried all sorts of things to catch it,
but to no avail.
But that's not my point. I'd like to replace Astep with something more
moderm, but I need to be able to configure it this way :
a 3 by 3 virtual desktop, with my numeric keypad keys bound to each
desktop, so that for ie, 7 takes me to the top left, 8 to top middle, 3 to
bottom right, etc. It's a very intuitive way to manage a virtual desktop.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to reproduce that setup in any other
window manager. Either they don't support 3 rows, or they don't allow me to
bind my keypad without a modifier key or whatever.
Anyone know of a WM that would allow that kind of flexibility ? Everytime
I've gone hunting for a replacement, I've fallen short ....
