Projects / netwmpager


netwmpager is an enhanced version of the original netwmpager-1.11 program written around 2005 by Timo Hirvonen. It should be compliant with the EWMH (or NetWM) specifications. This version implements virtual desktops split into different viewports, into different desks, or both, while the earlier version only supported desks. As a consequence, netwmpager-2 should work with most window managers; it has been tested especially with compiz, fluxbox, and fvwm. It also has many parametrizable features, and it implements a convenient zoom.

    Release Notes: This release fixes the tray mode commandline option, which is incompatible with the autohide feature, so that the latter is automatically disabled when the -tray option is set.

      Release Notes: This release adds the options "auto_hide" and "corner_activate", which can be set from the configuration file. As a result, netwmpager can be activated when the pointer hits a prescribed corner, and autohides when the pointer leaves the pager window.
