Projects / wmx


wmx is a window manager based on wm2. It retains a similar look-and-feel, but provides an experimental vehicle for features that fall comfortably outside the scope of the original wm2.

          somebody need some patches ?
          If somebody need some patches for wmx-6 to provide gnome
          support or some other little extra features.. drop a mail, and I'll see what I can do.. or come to #wmx at IrcNet..

          my resync of henri's (see wmx site) gnome patch is still experimental so I won't distribute it public yet.. but in case somebody want's to test.. it's probably not enough to make wmx a wm for gnome but it sure makes some apps to behave better..

          Great for old pc
          This prog is great: Just 1,2 MB memory-usage, simple navigation and all the basics you need. In addition to coolicon with some really cool icons ;-) you get a fast desktop-environment. You can even use some gtk-apps since you saved memory. I use it though I got a fast computer since it looks nice if you use black and white colors. Give it a whirl ...
