Stumpwm is a tiling, keyboard driven X11 Window Manager written entirely in Common Lisp.
If you're tired of flipping through themes like channel-surfing, and going from one perfect-except-for-just-one-thing window manager to another even-more-broken-in-some-other-way then perhaps Stumpwm can help.
It attempts to be customizable yet visually minimal. There are no window decorations, no icons, and no buttons. It does have various hooks to attach your personal customizations, and variables to tweak.
� Hack the good hack
� debug your good hack
� customize your window manager
while it's running. That's right. With a 100% Common Lisp window manager there's no stopping the hacks. Just re-eval and GO!
Building stumpwm from CVS requires that you build the configure script:
If there's already a configure script then just run it.
By default stumpwm elects sbcl. You can explicitely use clisp this way:
$ ./configure --with-lisp=clisp
If your lisps are in strange places you may need to tell the script where to find them:
$ configure --with-sbcl=/home/sabetts/opt/bin/sbcl --with-clisp=/usr/local/downstairs/to/the/left/clisp
Now build it:
If all goes well, you should have a stumpwm binary now. Sorry there's no install yet. Just copy the binary wherever you want or run it out of the stumpwm/ directory.
Now that you have a binary, call it from your ~/.xinitrc file:
$ echo /path/to/stumpwm > ~/.xinitrc
Hopefully that will put you in X running stumpwm!
