wmii - A Minimalist Window-Manager
This is what I did to configure
wmii to my liking, look at the end of this document for more documentation external to this site.
Create your own action folder (this is the menu that is available by typing
alt-a), and add a few menu items:
mkdir ~/.wmii-3 ln -s /usr/X11R6/bin/firefox /home/roqetman/.wmii-3/firefox cp /usr/X11R6/etc/wmii-3/wmiirc /home/roqetman/.wmii-3/
You can add more symlinks or shell files in the above folder, I just added 2 as an example.
How Do I?
Get started : Type
alt-a and select
welcome - this will give you a few pointers to get going.
Use a terminal other than
xterm : Modify the following line in
/home/roqetman/.wmii-3/wmiirc (This changes the default
xterm to a modified
PATH="$OLD_PATH" rxvt -rv -sr -fn -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--15-140-75-75-c-90-iso8859-1 &;;
Set the wallpaper (background) : In
~/.wmii-3/wmiirc, replace the line:
xsetroot -solid '#0b1014' with a command to set the background image, such as
feh --bg-scale /path/to/image & this one requires feh), or
Esetroot -scale -center /path/to/image.
Change color schemes : You'll find many to modify the color settings in your
~/.wmii-3/wmiirc file here.
Shutdown the System from within
wmii : No current shortcut; just type
sudo shutdown -p now from a terminal.
