Under X windows you'll need a window-manager. That's the program in charge
of drawing a title bar for your windows, and moving and resizing them.
Probably the coolest is sawfish
because it is not only fairly feature complete, themeable and fast, but also
Here's what I have contributed:
Then there's an idea for making sawfish cooler, and some
info about configuring sawfish properly.
- hook-snooper (Last modified 2002-12-07) is a little module to show you what's going on with hooks as sawfish works.
- kgenmenu4sawfish (Last modified 2002-09-09) - access KDE menu from sawfish (even without running desktop)
- move-viewport (Last modified 2002-09-09) is a patch allowing you to move viewports not only by screenfulls as
hitherto. Now, when you wish, you can also scroll by quarter screenfulls, or
even any given amount of pixels.
- pager (Last modified 2002-12-02) a complete rewrite of spager, smaller than the old one. Yet it fixes a couple
of bugs and adds a few features and options.
- turbo-X11 (Last modified 2002-12-03) a module for making X11 snappier by automatically temporarily stopping the
processes of windows you don't see.
- window-snooper (Last modified 2002-09-09) is a little program that pops up a window displaying everything that sawfish
knows about some window (be it managed, unmanaged or root).
The current version of grow-pack, a complete rewrite smaller than the old
one, is also by me. It fixes a couple of bugs and adds a few options like
ignoring windows on other layers or resizing/moving by a given amount of
