README.md

My custom DWM build.

This repository is a fork of the Dynamic Window Manager (DWM) from suckless which contains additional patches and custom configurations.

DWM is an extremely fast, small, and dynamic window manager for X.

Version: 6.3

Additional patches

  • titlecolor: Allows you to set a separate colour scheme for your title bar.
  • useless gap: Primarily adds 'useless' gaps around windows.

Requirements

In order to build dwm you need the Xlib header files.

Installation

The config.mk file was edited so that the installation path is set to ${HOME}/.local. This can be edited to match your own local setup.

Enter the following command to build and install dwm (if necessary as root):

$ make clean install

Running dwm

Add the following line to your ${HOME}/.xinitrc to start dwm using startx:

$ exec dwm

In order to connect dwm to a specific display, make sure that the DISPLAY environment variable is set correctly, e.g.:

$ DISPLAY=foo.bar:1 exec dwm

(This will start dwm on display :1 of the host foo.bar.)

In order to display status info in the bar, you can do something like this in your .xinitrc:

while xsetroot -name "`date` `uptime | sed 's/.*,//'`"
do
    sleep 1
done &
exec dwm

Configuration

The configuration of dwm is done by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the source code.

Keybindings

The MODKEY is set to the Super key (Windows key).
