No they don't :twisted:

Tiling works well on bigger and multi-monitor setups but fails on smaller screens. Multi tiled windows is a path of diminishing returns.

Switching between maximized windows and splitting screens works better on smaller screens.

^I really like the thin shadow, In case one wants to disable a few shadow-features like: tooltip, menu, dropdown, popup etc.. this piece helps a lot.
Code: Select all
wintypes:
{
tooltip = { fade = true; shadow = false; };
menu = { shadow = false; };
dropdown_menu = { shadow = false; };
popup_menu =  { shadow = false; };
utility =  { shadow = false; };
};


Hello Addy, Glad to see you aswell mate with your Simplicity :)

OK, good news: I've just upgraded the vulnerable xserver-xorg-core package in my new Debian buster box to the fixed version from sid and `startx` still works fine, which is a relief.

X is still running as my normal user but the Xorg binary has no setuid bit so it all looks good to me :)

Anybody else using gotop?

Image

Install with
Code: Select all
# apt install golang
cd
go get github.com/cjbassi/gotop

Then add these lines to ~/.profile:
Code: Select all
export GOPATH="${HOME}/go"
export PATH="${PATH}:${GOPATH}/bin"

It should then appear in PATH on the next login.

Then you can use Stumpwm or Ratpoison, where all windows are kept maximized inside their frames to take full advantage of your precious screen real estate.

So what exactly is the difference between a maximized window in a stacking window manager or a tiling one! I have dwm and icewm installed. Both can run floating windows and tile by default. Both can run maximized windows. The main difference is my granny could have used icewm ootb.

Personally I find dynamic tiling a pita, and to restrictive and keyboard heavy. That said I but quite like the concept of manual tiling and tabs in notionwm. But choice is good and I for one am glad we have so much. tile on.

I use tmux on the console. Within that you can create panes within a single window ... and zoom toggle each of those as desired to maximised; Or have multiple windows with each maximised and 'tab' between those.

Just a matter of personal preference, I personally prefer multiple windows rather than zooming/de-zooming panes. But sometimes I do use panes for the likes of comparing text side by side (vertical central split ... or horizontal split). Panes in a single window are also OK if you want to have a view of multiple things running on the same screen (system monitors perhaps).

i am a manual tiling person myself, and usually it comes down to fullscreen windows & switching workspaces.
sometimes a horizontal split, and very rarely 4 quarters - i have keybinds for that, openbox does manual tiling really well imo - it has the best of both worlds, i can use the mouse, i can use the keyboard, i can stack and tile...
i'd love to try another wm that compares to that.

icewm can tile? cool, have to take a closer look.
