Author Topic: Window manager on kde base?  (Read 660 times)

Hello,
I just installed kde classic, and it worked like a charm on my 1.6ghz / 512mb thinkpad. But it's a bit heavy.
So i would like a light window manager that works nice with kde. Because I like kde as base with its aps and so on.

How about Fluxbox? Blackbox? Or any other ideas? :-)

If you install "icewmvmods" using gslapt, it will give you an option to boot into an environment much like VL6 Light.

Blackbox and Fluxbox are also available from the "extra" area of the repository.

I've installed and am using XFce 4.6.1 under VL6 SOHO. No problems so far.

On my VL6 Light laptop I've installed kdebase and kdelibs, which gives me several KDE programs without having to run the KDE desktop, which I don't like at all. I also added K3B and Amarok to VL6 Light.

Hm, well I'm not really a big fan of icewm.... (nor xfce4). I do like cde-look Cheesy
But do any of the window managers integrate well with kde? I believe kde uses Qt? Gnome gtk? So it would be nice if I don't need any extra librarys (like gnome libs).
And would also be nice if start menu is easy "copied" to the new window manager.... Cheesy
