Description


Well, yes, I'm back to openbox after some window manager hopping.
I've tried several tiling WM lately and they really have some very nice features, but I have also realized that I don't want tiled windows all the time.

So I've basically assembled an openbox setup with features and keybindings similar to those of tiling wms, but with the flexibility of a floating wm.
I have to say that it's great and I feel to have the best of both worlds, though I may be wrong.

The keybindings, are badly inspired from vim, wmii and i3.
An informative description of this setup can be found here: have a look to get an idea of what I'm talking about!

As always, you can find all my configs on my bitbucket hg repo

Info:
OS: Arch Linux x86_64
WM: Openbox 3.4.11
OB theme: 2px
GTK theme: termGTK
Font: Terminus
Wallpaper: Leaf Skin
Apps: urxvt.tabbed, vim, vimperator, weechat, conky, tint2

Bello, quindi non hai usato pytyle e simili ma hai impostato tutte le combinazioni nell'rc? comunque io, dopo aver amato openbox, adesso non riesco a staccarmi da tiling assoluto...
