dwm

dwm is a simple, fast, stable and lightweight window manager for X11, but its keyboard shortcuts make it impossible to use Emacs (dwm was probably written by vi users), so I have reconfigured dwm. All shortcuts that used the Meta key, now use the Windows key (also known as super key).

You can run the command git clone git://aubergine.gpcf.eu/dwm.git

to download my version of dwm.

My version also contains some useful rules and keyboard shortcuts and an enlarged manpage, that documents almost all keyboard shortcuts. To use dwm you need to know at least the basics of C programming and basic usage of tools like make, because you have to recompile dwm to change the configuration.

Here is a screenshot of dwm:
