Venn have you tried Awesome WM? It is a little more hands on to get it configured, but I have used it on dual monitors with ease. Each monitor has it’s own workspaces etc. Only issue I met was wallpaper was the same on all the monitors. If you want each monitor to be there own workspace then I would suggest i3. With that monitor 1 would be workspace 1, moniter 2 workspace 2…etc. i3wm is easier to configure compared to awesome that is for sure.
No, but it looks proper! At this point our capture box boots in 6sec to desktop /w XFCE4. That and our not-so fancy capture system is tied to Xfce.
@Venn, If you’re down with a tiler like that but still want your actual Desktop Environment, you could try out my Terminator config. It pretty much strips everything off the terminal and throws it fullscreen on a desktop.
geometry_hinting = False
borderless = True
scrollbar_position = disabled
background_darkness = 0.0
background_type = transparent
icon_bell = False
show_titlebar = False
type = Terminal
parent = window0
type = Window
parent = “”
Yea, it’s hacky, but look where it’s comin from You probably will have to fuck round with the launch options and maybe tweak the config a bit to run it on XFCE, but it works on every DE I’ve tried.
