AntiWM is a simple and small window manager with a focus on productivity and utility. Inspired by ratpoison, AntiWM is keyboard driven and handles all windows fullscreen.

C-t C-c
This opens a new terminal session.

C-t C-e
This opens a new editor session.

C-t C-w
This displays the program bar for 5 seconds, which displays currently running windows. Jump to each window by number by typing 'C-t C-, where is the number of the window.

C-t C-p
This jumps you to the previous window in the window list.

C-t C-n
This jumps you to the next window in the window list.

C-t C-
This jumps you to window where is the window number as shown in the Program Bar.

C-t C-t
This toggles between the current window and the last window.

C-t t
Sometimes you need to send a C-t to the current window. This keystroke does just that.

NOTE: These are the default settings. There is no antiwm.conf or antirc to edit. To configure AntiWM, edit the settings in 'conf.h', then recompile and install.


AntiWM comes with a Makefile that should work in most cases and most architectures. If there is trouble compiling, try and edit it.

1) cd /path/to/antiwm/src
The path should point to where AntiWM was extracted.
2) make
This compiles the program.
Most warnings are fine, but errors should be cause to check the Makefile.
3) make install
This installs AntiWM. By default AntiWM installs to /usr/local/bin. If this is not where AntiWM should be installed, change the path indicated in the Makefile. NOTE: This should be done as a privileged user.
