Does it support binding keys to move/iconify/deiconify windows, like fvwm
does? I'm still using fvwm95 (call me sick but I like the look'n'feel).
It lets me bind keypresses to all sorts of crap -- including moving
windows about, which other wms don't seem to support, for some reason!
If you're using fvwm2 or fvwm95, try these out:
# Ctrl-left: move window into left half of screen.
# Ctrl-right: move window into right half of screen.
Mouse 1 WFST C Move 2p 2p
Mouse 3 WFST C Move 625p 2p
AddToFunc "FocusAndDeiconify" "I" Next [$0] Iconify -1
+ "I" Next [$0] Focus
+ "I" Next [$0] CursorMove 5 5
# F9: bring up mail
# F10: bring up a netscape
Key F9 A N FocusAndDeiconify exmh
Key F10 A N FocusAndDeiconify Netscape:*
# bind Mode_switch to one of the "WinKeys" using xmodmap
# Mode_switch: iconify window under cursor
Key Mode_switch A N Iconify
The last one is pretty generic, but the other 4 kick ass and I haven't
seen an easy way to do them with other wms. The amount of mouse-twiddling
I save with those top two is just astonishing!
If E can support this kind of stuff I'll switch; I've been meaning to get
a new wm for a long time, and I really do have a lot of CPU power here
that's just going to waste ;)
