dvtm - dynamic virtual terminal manager
dvtm brings dwm and it's concept of tiling window management to
the console. See for
the latest version.
In order to build dvtm you will need:
* libncurses or libncursesw for wide character support
Edit to match your local setup (dvtm is installed into
the /usr/local namespace and links against libncursesw by default).
Afterwards enter the following command to build and install dvtm (if
necessary as root).
make && make install
Running dvtm
Just run dvtm from the console, redirect stderr to a file (just in
case something goes wrong you will see it there).
dvtm 2> log
If you want to display a one line status bar you can create a named
pipe and pass it's name to dvtm via it's -s command line option.
Make sure that the pipe remains open until dvtm is closed, see the
included dvtm-status script as an example.
The configuration of dvtm is done by creating a custom config.h
and (re)compiling the source code.
