So farā€¦so goodā€¦

PLEASE NOTE: THERE IS NO DWMX 2019 ISO AT THIS TIMEā€¦THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE.
THIS THREAD IS JUST A DWMX 2019 CONCEPTā€¦
YOUR INPUT IS MOST WELCOME AND APPRECIATED

Here are some of my old dwmX ISOs;

@mrneilypops, lol, Looks great !

@altman
Thanksā€¦so far so goodā€¦
I am deliberately trying to use default dwm colours.
I was lucky to find the icon/gtk sets that I think match quite wellā€¦
Not sure about st terminalā€¦might need further research re: colours and fontsā€¦
urxvtc is lookinā€™ pretty goodā€¦in my opinionā€¦thus farā€¦
I have surf browser on board at the moment but struggling with streaming/youtube etcā€¦

I think the greatest find has been the Hack fonts :star_struck:

@mrneilypops , that s cool ! Wonder if Sakura would fit well on your iso install. Appart from color tweakings I guess

I donā€™t think it is about being smart.
I am sure you are smart but tilers seem to apeal to a ā€˜micro nicheā€™ of peopleā€¦in my opinion.

What I love about dwm is the ā€˜dā€™ dynamicā€¦I love moving/resizing the windows so rapidlyā€¦yes in ā€˜floating modeā€™ā€¦some will hate me for that but whateverā€¦

I still love openbox on ArchLabs :star_struck:

Wow, thatā€™s cool, downloading 1ā€¦ 2ā€¦ 3ā€¦ :joy:

Congratulations! @mrneilypops

Also, don t forget the nonfree firmware. As Debian as none from the dvd download for the next release ! If available already, forget itā€¦

Moved dwmX development to Devuan Beowulf [systemd on Buster causing too many issues]

Looking good so far and test ISO created.

Wow! Is that ISO available to test?

** I see the link now, downloading.

@Dobbie03
Not quite yetā€¦thank you for your patience :wink:
I just have to decide the apps to remain in the final buildā€¦plus a bit of tweakingā€¦
I hope to have an ISO ā€˜soonishā€™ for testingā€¦but it will be ALPHA mode.

PLEASE NOTE THE LINK ABOVE REFERS TO MY OLD dwmX ISO based on Debian Jessie!
Cheers!
