Description

Start a KDE session with the bspwm tiling window manager.

Configuration

Autostarting Applications

Applications may be enabled for autostart with KDE system settings or with bspwm's configuration file. A standalone composite manager is recommended for transparency, shadows, and other desktop effects.

Keybindings

Keybindings may be mapped within KDE system settings or with an external hotkey daemon, like sxhkd or xbindkeys.

Window Manager Settings

Please refer to bspwm's repository on Github for window manager configuration instructions, documentation, and examples. Please read bspwm's README before running the session for the first time since the window manager is nearly unusable without a proper configuration of keybindings.

Installation

Dependencies

  • bspwm
  • plasma-workspace (for startkde)

Make

Run sudo make install to install to default locations. See the Makefile for details of prefix overrides. The session script and desktop file will contain absolute paths to executables.
