Not really. Someone said something about how hard or impossible is to get Awesome on Slack so I had to try. But if I was considering a tiling wm, I would probaly choose Awesome: default config is more than reasonable for beginners and I am more familiar with Luad than Haskell.

But thanks for the suggestion anyways.

I guess it's a matter of preference. I found i3 more configurable (to suit my needs) than xmonad (and it doesn't depend on ghc). i3wm v4.x has a very clean config file and the idea of containers, as well as its tiling/tabbed/stacked modes give you freedom and endless possibilities in terms of window management (especially when you combine the two).

This is mine.

i3 (across 2 screens) with lots of windows combining tiling/tabbed and floating modes. It may not look nice but it's really practical

If you decide to install it, make sure you use 4.x version. Not the one available from slackbuilds.org. It's quite outdated. The config file has changed (for the better) with the release of 4.0.

Damn it, too late, just building the SlackBuild, just looked over the manual for configuration and wondered if it was so easy to configure the last time I tried. Can I build the 4.x with the SlckBuild script?

As far as I remember, yes you can. There's just one small change:

Change the following line:
Code:
  DEPENDS LICENSE TODO GOALS docs/* \
to:

Code:
 DEPENDS LICENSE GOALS docs/* \
If, by any chance, you want to look at my config, I could upload it.

Thanks, I just tried it and stumbled about that error, that it can't find TODO. No need for the config now, will at first try to "translate" my current wmii config, then go on from there.
Where would be the fun if I go pre-configured.

That's true

Just one more thing: When it comes to i3status. You could stick to version 2.1 which is available from slackbuilds.org. In that case you need to make sure that the option output_format = none. Otherwise I’d recommend installing i3status 2.4.

Checked the versions for i3status as you mentioned that there is a new version for i3 and have already installed 2.4.
Now let the tinkering begin !

Yeah, that's where the fun is!

FYI, i3 irc channel is very active. The guys are very helpful and the i3 author/developer, Micheal Stapelberg (I think your fellow countryman), is almost always present there.

Everytime I try to use conky no matter the script it just shows a black box on the left side. Any ideas how to fix?
