Ahh. Thanks @philT, just couldn’t remember the beast…
No worries man.
New version of dwm:
OK, so it looks exactly the same
I’ve replaced the shell snippet filling the status bar with slstatus, but that also looks exactly the same. The memory usage isn’t any lower but I think the processor overhead is (slightly) and it’s more l33t so I like it.
Anything particularly new?
I’ll have to upgrade/recompile later.
The config.h is slightly different, the colours are assigned via a (confusing) array, but I haven’t noticed any changes in respect of functionality (which is good).
We now have pledge(2) support in OpenBSD, which is brilliant, and lots of bug fixes for other distributions:
The big news is that this is the last version to support Xft fonts, they’re dropping them for the next release (although there will be a patch to add it back).
I don’t think the devs are fond of the Xft codebase, can’t find any details though.
Anselm described it as a “mess” in the release announcement.
I’m using attachaside with a small change to dwm.c to make the titlebar 2 pixels taller:
EDIT2: some details about the Xft decision in the lobste.rs discussion thread:
It reminds me of socialism:
Socialism heroically struggles with the problems it creates itself.
Installed 2019-iso. Faster and lighter. Works very well. This desk is compiz+xfce-panel and plank.
Great work!! Great and simple install and iso worked perfect for chroot!
Had to reinstall AL on my older laptop, decided to go a bit different with xfce this time (went like a charm btw <3). Decided to go for a macos imitation, but it’s still a work in progress.
I’m starting to get settled into ArchLabs now. Got my deepin-dark-mod script fixed from some thunar related icon issues.
Pretty much using a straight openbox session setup with only trayer and fvwm installed separately.
Simple and elegant.
