dwm - dynamic window manager

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

This is my personal build. Every branch on the repo is dwm patched with an one of the patches I find useful.

Master branch is in sync with the original dwm project at https://git.suckless.org/dwm

Single patched branches

My custom build

The branch patched2 is the result of merging the original dwm with the patched versions.

Requirements

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

Build

Edit config.mk to match your local setup (dwm is installed into the /usr/local namespace by default).

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

make clean install

Running dwm

Add the following line to your .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.
