dwm is an extremely fast, small, and dynamic window manager for X.
In order to build dwm you need the Xlib header files. Requiered packages for scripts(bgsh & screensh): maim, xorg-xclip, feh.
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
Then you need to download your wallpaper and save it as
Add the following line to your .xinitrc to start dwm using startx:
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
The configuration of dwm is done by creating a custom config.h and (re)compiling the source code.
