[Haskell-cafe] Having a look at XMonad window manager

Hi Ketil,

I was just looking around and found this:


No mention of XMonad here, even under the "Other" category.

I got it running but it became unresponsive as soon as I deleted a window, and instead of tiling newly opened windows it just displayed them in the top left corner, obscuring what was already there (possibly the way it's supposed to work?). But the XMonad video I watched on YouTube looked interesting enough to pursue it further, so I'm in research mode.

I use Ubuntu, in the GDM login screen, I get a drop down menu that
includes Xmonad as an option.  Even if Fedora doesn't have this, it
probably has a "Failsafe" option that will just give you an xterm, from
which you can run xmonad manually?

If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
