Waimea?


Looking at freshmeat themes from pure boredom i went to aterstep section and i was impressed. AfterStep is a very nice WM and im about to try it out. I especially like transparent window borders and menu, it looks very good. Here is a screenshot of it.

And can someone please tell me what is the GTK file manager running in the lower right? I browsed all of freshmeat file managers section and didnt find it, or missed it. So does anybody know its name?
Thanks

This is Gnome's nautilus I believe, and it is not a pure afterstep - it is bloated with gnome, do you see a Gnome panel on the lowest right?

Yes i see the GNOME panel, but i like transparent window borders and transparent menu (left click menu) in AfterStep. Anyway i tried it out, and i dont like how it plays with my dualhead setup. I also don't have time to configure it now, since i have to study for school exams. So im back to Flux. I just wish fluxbox implemented transparent windows borders and the menu like afterstep has, that would really be some nice eye-candy.
Thanks for file manager help!

I found what i was looking for! Check http://www.waimea.org/ the Waimea window manager! It resembles blackbox, but it's code was hacked a LOT. It has the option of transparent window borders and menu, check out http://www.waimea.org/shots/waimeaSS-67/shot.png to see what i mean, isn't it beautiful? However the developers of Waimea made the configuration a pain. I'm not able to simply copy my fluxbox menu and init file because the syntax is slightly different. In addition waimea has some weird options and doesn't feel as stable as fluxbox, so i'm back to fluxbox, also because i don't have time to rewrite my menus. Another thing i dont like is that there is no slit and no toolbar. There is a dock which is the same as slit, but its a pain to configure correctly.
I wish fluxbox developers added transparency options.. I posted my request on their forums, but the forums don't seem to be alive...
What do you guys think about this? Fluxbox with more transparency options?
Neo7777 thanks for the file manager help, it was GMC indeed, very nice.
