DWM Questions

I started using DWM for my Window Manager really just for the hell of simplicity (I'm an obsessive minimalist) anyways... I can use seamonkey but I do like Firefox more but for some reason it does not load. If from a terminal I type firefox is just simply doesn't load, brings up no errors or anything.

Also, is there a way to control which windows take up what space???

Take a look at config.h; there dwells a section in which you can set the default desktop an application will belong to. By default, it comes with Gimp and Firefox configured, and if I'm not mistaken, Firefox is set to desktop #9.

Ah! Did you install dmenu messages display? It's a very cool addition. Again, config.h comes configured to modkey + p launch dmenu showing all executables from $PATH, then one can use it to exec apps.
