Is sowm now included in online installation of archlabs officially?
No, it’s small and simple meaning you should build from source
This is far from a technical issue let alone a support question.
I posted this question in General ArchLabs Discussion section as I came to know about this window manager from one of the ArchLabs forum page once , so I thought since ArchLabs people were taking interest in this new window manager so may be it has been added into the online installer option of ArchLabs now . I did install it from source myself but having it from ArchLabs would be definitely something different . I wasnt asking for help or reporting any issues in this general discussion section.
No, you didn’t. I moved it to the General section. You posted in Technical Assistance.
My mistake , but my question remains , will SOWM be included in the online installer?
@saleem Read the post from natemaia. He answered your question 20 DAYS AGO!
Maybe he went over it without knowing it.
@altman That can be, but when i ask a question then i read the answers and ca. every 2nd day, some one is opening a new thread with install issues. If they would search the forum first, most of the problems can be solved immediatly. Sorry…bad day.
Yep, it might be that also.
No it won’t be. If anything I would expect Nate’s wm yaxwm to be included long before sowm.
I would imagine a YAXWM experience would be the same as a SOWM too!, if you were floating in yax. After all how do you move stuff around in minalmalist floating WMs without using the keyboard.
Edit: feel free to roast me if I’m wrong, I’ve never used cwm or sowm in that workflow. But I’ve configured fvwm like that before. Without a title bar a floater seems kind of awkward to me.
I’ve used both. sowm causes me issues. yaxwm doesn’t. Plus I prefer the tiling to the floating.
For sure @Dobbie03
What I was getting at is a floater like sowm is just like having yax or dwm stuck in monocle mode forever without any benefit. I don’t get what these window decoration-less floaters are even good for. yax or dwm does the same thing and they can do other cool stuff too. Hope that makes sense.
Makes total sense and is exactly why I haven’t bothered with Openbox since using i3/dwm.
Old times man… I remember you transitioning without windecs back in the #! Days. Full circle.
Thanks , I just read it , agreed it can be installed from source and I did give it a try.
Yaxwm looks good , would be interesting to see how it goes with ArchLabs if it is added to the installer
Ratpoison is one of my favorite wm , if it ever comes into ArchLabs then I will definitely install it .
Both cwm (which I’ve used) and sowm (which I have not used) have the typical ALT + Mouse 1/3 binding to move/resize the window.
There is a point of diminishing return, isn’t there.
