herbstluftwm screenshots and config

This is the screenshot and config sharing thread for herbstluftwm (HLWM/HWM).

I'm hoping people can showcase the versatility of this cool WM and get more people to try using it, at the same time I'm hoping to learn from other users on how they configure their setup.

As with any other screenshot sharing threads, do not post full resolution screenshots.

So here is my SS:

Re: herbstluftwm screenshots and config

You can read the following to understand more about HL:
http://wwwcip.cs.fau.de/~re06huxa/herbstluftwm/
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Herbstluftwm

The main difference between Awesome and HL is the way tiling of the clients is done. Awesome automatically tiles the clients depending on the layout the user wants to use (i.e. normal tiling, bottom stack, grid, etc...). In HL (Same goes for other "Manual tiling WM" such as musca/i3... Awesome/DWM are referred to as "Dynamic tiling WM"), you split the main frame into subframes, and so it's not restricted to the layout template. This means you can have arbitrary amount of rows/columns and you can group clients in each of the subframes.

There are number of other differences which are not necessarily advantage/disadvantage from other WM. You just need to try it out and see whether it fits you. I personally have used dwm for some time (dwm = barebone awesome without many of its features), but I really wanted manual tiling. I think I've tried most of the WM's listed here, and I find Herbstluft WM the best fitted for me.

Re: herbstluftwm screenshots and config

Why did this thread die out? Anyway, has played around some with hlwm, or mostly trying to get used to a tiling wm for the first time smile

I am pretty satisfied of how it looks and works right now, though I may switch to a better background image or change the text color to not white^^
Next thing to ad is probably a panel on the top, but that will have to wait. Should also probably clean autostart somewhat, there is some things I don't use anymore..

Re: herbstluftwm screenshots and config

I'm a stumpwm user, and I really like it, except it crashes every time I start gimp, and some other programs. Does anyone have a stump-like key-binding setup for herbstluft?

@kcirick
I like your color scheme. Care to share your .Xdefaults/.Xresources?

Can you paste the herbstluftwm output when starting gimp? E.g. put this in your .xinitrc:

exec herbstluftwm &> ~/log

If you want to use key chains, you have to use external tools like xchainkeys

@thorsten What I meant was that I like stumpwm except it crashes (not herbstluf), which is why I'm thinking of giving herbstluft a try.thorsten

Re: herbstluftwm screenshots and config

(cross post from April SS thread) My new SS. I've hacked and customized herbstluft to the way I like it (+new bugs), so I can't really post the autostart script (I don't have one anymore). but the overall look and feel is stock herbstluft, so ...

Nice screenshot. I wonder how unusual it is not to use dmenu as application launcher. Especially among tiling WM community. 
Thanks for the color scheme BTW, using it now. smile

Re: herbstluftwm screenshots and config

Is it wrong to bump this thread?

Oh well...

A super simple setup with just 5 colors for everything and no borders or padding on anything.  "Derpity" GTK theme with matched colors and dmenu_run for launching.

in ~/.gtk-3.0/settings.ini

 gtk-color-scheme="tooltip_fg_color:#d4d4d4\nbase_color:#323232\nselected_fg_color:#d4d4d4\ntext_color:#d4d4d4\nbg_color_dark:#383838\nbg_color:#191919\ntooltip_bg_color:#323232\nselected_bg_color:#646464\nfg_color:#d4d4d4\n" 

in ~/.xbindkeysrc

 #dmenu
"dmenu_run -i -fn '-*-Clean-*-*-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-*' -nb '#191919' -nf '#d4d4d4' -sb '#191919' -sf '#00c000'"
    m:0x40 + c:135

Re: herbstluftwm screenshots and config

Yay for the bump!

Mine: (click for a bigger image)

Panel selfmade (mixture of conky, dzen2 and trayer), wallpaper selfmade. Configs upon request since there are quite a few of them and I'm a lazy bum.
