I finally had some time to sit down and play around with conky and my fluxbox style. Found some good stuff that I like. I have tried a few WM's in the past and I always came back to KDE. I don't think that's going to happen this time. Fluxbox just makes so much more sense.

Hey rogan, would you mind sharing your .twmrc? Nice setup!

Of course not (I doubted anyone would be interested)

You will have to do some editing for it to suit your home folder.
Left click on background gives you an application menu.
To blast your background with rxvt's choose Terminal Backdrop.
That runs a script ~/.termscreen which is as ugly a hack as they come.
You probably want to edit the geometry settings to suit your monitor
and rxvt font choice. It contains a commented region for a 1680x1050
monitor which I had before.
Rxvt do not have any titlebars (nor any new ones you might open), move them
by holding down alt (and move as usual) resize is alt + right click.
This goes for all applications without titlebar (xine ...)

Middle click on background brings up a wallpaper menu.
Right click on background is the std. twm menu (without the xterm).
I keep backgrounds in ~/pictures/wallpapers and some fractals I made with xaos
in ~/pictures/fractals. But you can change this (in .twmrc).
To upload I had to add a .txt and removed the leading . on all files.
You will have to rename them e.g. twmrc.txt to .twmrc before you use them.
You will have to include .termscreen and .Xdefaults and .xinitrc as well if you
want my settings (you put them in your home folder).
I changed the colors somewhat and moved the icon manager and clock to the top of
the screen (better use of screen real-estate since the icon manager grows downwards).

I was only allowed to attach three files so here goes .xinitrc:
#!/bin/sh
# $Xorg: xinitrc.cpp,v 1.3 2000/08/17 19:54:30 cpqbld Exp $

userresources=$HOME/.Xresources
usermodmap=$HOME/.Xmodmap
sysresources=/etc/X11/xinit/.Xresources
sysmodmap=/etc/X11/xinit/.Xmodmap

# merge in defaults and keymaps

if [ -f $sysresources ]; then
/usr/bin/xrdb -merge $sysresources
fi

if [ -f $sysmodmap ]; then
/usr/bin/xmodmap $sysmodmap
fi

if [ -f $userresources ]; then
/usr/bin/xrdb -merge $userresources
fi

if [ -f $usermodmap ]; then
/usr/bin/xmodmap $usermodmap
fi

# start some nice programs!

/usr/bin/xsetroot -solid SteelBlue -name "TWM" &
/usr/bin/xclock -bg LightSteelBlue -fg Black -strftime '%a %Y %m %d %T' -geometry -0+0 &
/usr/bin/twm

I also have a alias ls='ls -color=never -F'
and alias mc='mc -b' in .bash_profile to avoid those
ghastly colors that almost makes text unreadable.
Happy hacking

Excellent, thanks! I've been appreciating both twm and cwm on my OpenBSD setup, also installed Xfce for the hell of it:

Made a few changes to my XFCE desktop. Still nothing special though. Decided on a wallpaper that was a bit more local than the last one. Also put in a background image in my terminal also local.

Your .xinitrc is useful for setting up bits and pieces on login too. Any chance of the tiling script? I use twm myself, I love it for exactly the reasons you stated (+ it's fun).

Did you vote in the LQ poll? I managed to get it added to the WM poll.

[Edit] ...sorry, you already posted the script I see, thanks!

Yep, I voted quite a while ago, at least I think I did (got to check), TWM ftw!
Hope they never drop this badass wm .
