    I am kind of a jwm fan, but I did install antiX in a VM and add the BunsenLabs repos to get the Openbox/tint2 set from those guys in antiX. It was interesting.



    rox-icewm or icewm ain’t hard to place icons on the desktop.


    plain fluxbox

    Me too. 🙂

    Linux (& BSD) since 1999


    * None of the above, I use AfterStep! ( and available in the Antix repos) It’s old, but it’s lean & mean, and very configurable. It’s also the ONLY W/M with the “Wharf” dockapp swallower / launcher that will “swallow” all my “dockapps” including the ones I wrote in Perl/Tk, ie.!

    I’m partial to icewm. I like jwm, too, but, icewm has some extra bells and whistles that I enjoy. If I were going to stray from the “built-in” options in antiX, I would go with i3wm as I quite enjoy it. Some day I’ll get my head wrapped around herbsluftwm, but for now it just doesn’t “click.” If I could get a configuration for herbsluftwm that more or less matched the default i3 keybindings and such, I would likely migrate. | Audio | Visual
