Wmii setup

Yep, i started using wmii, insane me. I usually have 6 workspaces, and I'm still using "alt" as my default modifier, which is a real PITA.

Workspaces

Here are my 6 workspaces:

/XMMS.*/ -> ~
/Gimp.*/ -> ~
/MPlayer.*/ -> ~
/Thunder.*/ -> 1
/Firefox.*/ -> 2
/XChat.*/ -> 3
/irssi/ -> 3
/.*[Tt]erm.*/ -> 4
/Quodlibet.*/ -> 5
/Workrave.*/ -> 6
/.*/ -> 1

Yes, only a wmii geek can understand that.

Favorite applications

I am still using thunderbird for my mail, firefox for the web, but I have started using irssi instead of xchat, i don't remember why… Since I'm using more terminals than before, i have also ?/blog/2007-05-30-la-resolution-et-les-laptops.

I have therefore set cool symlinks to have all those lovely things in my menu:

$ ls -l .wmii-3
lrwxrwxrwx  1 anarcat anarcat   16 2006-07-21 06:09 firefox -> /usr/bin/firefox
-rwxr-xr-x  1 anarcat anarcat   64 2006-07-21 06:12 irssi
lrwxrwxrwx  1 anarcat anarcat   18 2006-07-21 06:27 quodlibet -> /usr/bin/quodlibet
lrwxrwxrwx  1 anarcat anarcat   20 2006-07-21 06:09 thunderbird -> /usr/bin/thunderbird
-rwxr-xr-x  1 anarcat anarcat 4366 2006-07-21 13:33 wmiirc

Note how irssi is actually not a symlink but a simple shell script:

exec x-terminal-emulator -T irssi -e /usr/bin/irssi

Parenthesis: rxvt setup

This mostly sets up transparency and reverse video.

Rxvt.reverseVideo: true
URxvt.inheritPixmap: true
URxvt.tint: true
URxvt.shading: 90
URxvt.tintColor: grey
URxvt*reverseVideo: true
URxvt*saveLines: 10000
URxvt*externalBorder: 0
URxvt*internalBorder: 0
URxvt*scrollBar: False
URxvt*termName: rxvt

So that's ?http://chbg.sourceforge.net/, ?http://freshmeat.net/projects/xautolock/, ?http://conky.sourceforge.net/ and ?http://workrave.org/.

I use the same keybindings as in my sawfish setup, in general…
