I have posted a dotpup of the Ion3 window manager if anyone is interested. http://www.joeycagle.net/ion3.pup
. This does not require Lua 5.1, but if you want to customize it with Lua scripts, you definitely need it. You can download it at lua.org, and I recommend compiling the source code. Compiling Lua is very easy. "make linux" and "make install", and it doesn't take long. But if enough people are wanting a dotpup of that, I will provide that too.
This is the first dotpup I've actually posted. Feel free to let me know if you run into problems.
Ion3 is a keyboard driven windowmanager. It is not meant to look pretty. But if you're one who uses the keyboard a lot (like me) then you'll like it once you get used to it. It can be customized with lua scripts.
