JWM is cool, but it is not tiling.
Okay, thanks. Does jwm have more customization than i3? I did a research, and notice that jwm has windows button and application menu while i3 doesn’t. What else do I need to know? I’m a guy that rely a lot on keyboard shortcut and menu type to search and launch. And I know whisker menu is something I might want inside them. Can I launch Xfce or lxde panel inside them? But like I said before, I want to customize a lot of keyboard shortcuts. So what would you choose if you’re in my position? Thanks again
My Linux Mint 18 “Sarah” Cinnamon 64bit, still want to show off despite not being on Manjaro right now
if you rely mre on keyboard, customizing i3 should give you more flexibility. no window buttons or window title bars… just your customization of key binding you give…
i followed this colorful i3 customization and its awesome !
jwm is a beauty in its own way, but you need to edit menu everytime you install or change an app to show up… i3 dmenu just picks up ! [i use j4-dmenu-desktop, though]
There is a way to setup dynamic menu in jwm with additional menu generator, but it is not used by default.
clue to do that ? this is the only issue …
i am lazy to edit menu file everytime so use “gmrun” !
There is a package “manjaro-xdg-menu”, it was added to repos several weeks ago (or you can use “menugenerator” or “xdgmenumaker” from AUR).
If you use “manjaro-xdg-menu”, add this line to jwm menu file:
<Include>exec: xdg_menu --full --format jwm</Include>
and it will show xdg based menu at that portion of menu.
You can see an example with “xdgmenumaker” here:
Awesome. I think I’ll try i3 then. I think I’ll spend a lot of time on the scripting on the keybinding. Thanks for that link. Now I already have a i3blocks design I want in my head.
will look for your creativity champ:)
let me know if i should post mine so i can get it more polished !
Wait… Isn’t that KDE? I never knew that there was a dock for KDE. What’s it called?
Oh, and nice desktop.
Looks a lot like cairo-dock to me with (annoying) 3d cube icons
I am using Cairo-Dock…
I have two panels from Plasma Left and Right and cairo dock in the middle…
What is the e on the bottom left?
Wow, that’s pretty cool. I never knew about Cairo Dock!

I didn’t think they worked in KDE, only in Gnome or XFCE. Wow, I am clearly not up to scratch when it comes to how desktop environments work.
the e is from the windows 10 fonts it launches my web browser
