Firebox window manager
« on: August 27, 2009, 01:21:43 pm »

Here's another, lesser known window manager I've tried recently, which works well;

Someone's made up a set of Slackware packages for it, and it's worth a look if anyone's interested in experimenting with lesser known WMs.

It's an intetresting wm.  The website says it's somewhere between flux/openbox and wmii (which I used for a long time).

When they get the tiling thing I'll give it a try.

Thank you for the info.

You're welcome. I can't promise there'll be any more updates though; it doesn't seem to get updated very frequently, the last time seems to have been in January 2008 (though packages based on it have been added to the site since then).
