Default simple window manager for openbsd 5.1

Hi again,


I'm searching for a lighter and simpler window manager.


Is golem a good choice or xfve4 ?




Thanks.

You may want to try fluxbox.

Why don't you install them, & decide for yourself?

Default fluxbox is working

export PKG_PATH=ftp://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/5.1/packages/i386

pkg_add -r fluxbox

nano /test/.xinitrc



pkg_add -r firefox

then open the menu and open firefox that was already in the menu for me.

Wow , works like a charm.



---------------------------------

Now I'm surfing for the first time with openbsd !!!

with golem I got :

connection to X server lost.

fatal error

I've been using ratpoison and quite like it. If you're an emacs (or mg) user it should be particularly comfortable because the key bindings have a similar feel. If you decide later you want something more customizable and want to learn Common Lisp, you can replace it with stumpwm and have an almost identical wm, but that's customizable using Lisp.

Then you must have another window manager set in ~/.xinitrc ..
or you just did a : $ golem .. or exec golem .. this won't work.
Right now I'm on golem .. which I start with :
Code:
$ xinit /usr/local/bin/golem
Alternatively :
put /usr/local/bin/golem in ~/.xinitrc and comment out other lines.

pkg_path -r firefox

Thank you @thirdm !
stumpwm doesn't exist as a package and barti's using OpenBSD 5.1 stable .. I've downloaded the latest version (0.9.7) and tried compiling it on OpenBSD 5.2 .. but :
Code:
;; Compiling file /usr/ports/x11/stumpwm-0.9.7/primitives.lisp ...
*** - READ from
       #<INPUT BUFFERED FILE-STREAM CHARACTER
         #P"/usr/ports/x11/stumpwm-0.9.7/primitives.lisp" @609>
      : there is no package with name "XLIB"

The following functions were used but not defined:
 STUMPWM::RESTARTS-MENU STUMPWM::MESSAGE STUMPWM::DFORMAT
0 errors, 7 warnings
Bye.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/x11/stumpwm-0.9.7 (line 37 of Makefile).

  • daemonfowl, discussing compilation issues of an application outside of what is in the ports tree is moving outside the scope of this thread. In other words, you are hijacking discussion yet again.

    If you want to continue discussing stumpwm compilation issues, start a new thread (Seems like I have said that before time & again...)
  • Stating that you are compiling on OpenBSD 5.2 is not quite correct as OpenBSD 5.2 has not been officially released. Yes, I am quite aware of what can be seen in dmesg(8) &:

    $ sysctl kern.version

    ...but this is what -current specifies at this point in the development cycle. Recognize that most of the world is not running -current, nor should they.

    Many people desperately want to get access to the official -release, & since many don't read or remember the release schedule stated in Section 1.7 of the FAQ, you may be sending them into an unnecessary frenzy.

Before you do, read the instructions in http://www.nongnu.org/stumpwm/manual...wm_1.html#SEC1 I think you're probably missing the clx dependency.
