Search for window manger.


Hello

I want to change my desktop with these points:
  1. I don't want Icons in the Desktop and only picture on it.
  2. I don't need the task bar for working windows but only the alt+<tab> menu
  3. Is it possible to set that window is not active, It will automatic minimize?
  4. I like the right clicked menu of the simple WM like Openbox that have programs menu and there is access to different open windows in different workspace.
  5. many workspaces don't important if there something which auto minimize non active windows.
  6. small panel which I can choose not to load it. The gnome panel, for example, will reload, if It killed.

I have Centos 4.

Thanks for your help.

How about Fluxbox? I'm not sure about the inactive window minimizing part, but it'll do all the other stuff.

There's also Icewm that's customizable alot. Pretty sure you can do the inactive minimizing part, but you have to specify in a config file the specific programs that you want minized. Otherwise I've heard of jwm where u can customize everything way more than Icewm. I've also heard of wmii which is very very simplistic (source code is something like 50k total) but not sure if you can customize it.
