      This is true, I’ve also patched st to include scrollback. The complete scrollback buffer is allocated at startup, and if I recall correctly, the memory usage jumped from around 4 to 12 MiB. So away it went. Now I mainly edit colors, fonts, and shortcut keys. If I need scrollback I’ll use roxterm.

        Good information, @blur13.

        The author of dwm-flexipatch, bakkeby, has st-flexipatch. I will take a closer look at roxterm but if I do go with st, I’ll use st-flexipatch. This will make it much easier for folks to patch st to their preference and st-flexipatch supports approximately seventy patches.

        bakkeby actively supports folks and he added a bug fix at my request for antix-dwm.

          Sounds good, I definitely think whatever light-weight terminal is chosen that scrollback should be a feature. Its more or less taken for granted, and not having it is user hostile.

            One option is use st versus kitty for situations where I need to call a window to float and center, e.g. rofi. That means both st and kitty are installed, however, you can install roxterm or any terminal you want. The only change you would need to make is update dwm’s config.h to use roxterm terminal when using mod+shift+enter. I will create an “install/inst-roxterm.sh” to complete the necessary tasks for your use case.

            @blur13, what are your thoughts about the above solution?

              techore, this is Peter.

              All seemed to be well when I installed to my Alienware M15x laptop, but I had no network at all, ethernet or wifi.
              Found a solution here: Network solution
              Running this code worked:
              sudo sysctl -w net.ipv4.ping_group_range="0 1000"

                  I had no network at all, ethernet or wifi.

                  Good call out. I reviewed my installation instructions and failed to provide instructions on how to configure interfaces, e.g. ‘sudo ceni’. I will add it.

                  ceni is cli only. cmst is another option and may be more user friendly. I’ll add both items to my “To do” list.

                  Thank you for the feedback.

                    For the terminals that don’t provide name or title, could you use wmcrtl to set them?

                      @techore

                      Seems like a good solution for terminals.

                      Regarding Ceni vs cmst. I’ve gotten ceni to work and its fine if only connecting to the same wifi all the time. It will autoconnect at startup. If the network is different then ceni has to be run again with the new network credentials. When moving back to the old wifi the same procedure has to be done again, ie the networks are not saved. Cmst recognizes known networks at startup and autoconnects.

                      At least that is my experience.

                        Blur13, for ceni have you tried roaming mode?

                          Ok, I was right and wrong.
                          ping did not work initially and that found sysctl command to fix that.
                          Last evening I did run ceni and was connected.
                          When I rebooted it was just ping that did not work again. By that time it was past 1:00am for me and I was exhausted.
                          This morning I logged in as far as the terminal, ping did not work, but apt did when I went to install lynx.

                            After checking Debian 11, I have determine the correct solution to permit users to use ping.

                            setcap cap_net_raw+ep /usr/bin/ping

                            I will add it to my build and will open another thread to report the issue and solution.

                            Update: I’ve added this to my build script so it will be working on the next release. I’ve open a post on the topic directed at anticapitalista–private messages are not working as a result of the recent forum issues, I assume.

                                  Mystery solved with ping. anticapitalista figured it out.

                                  It is still being puzzled out.
