About

StumpWM is a tiling, keyboard driven X11 window manager written entirely in Common Lisp and similar to Ratpoison. For more information you should visit StumpwmWiki.

Installation

Git

Simply follow the directions here. The cl-clx-sbcl package is dev-lisp/cl-clx in Portage.

Portage

The stumpwm CVS sources are closed. If you want to have the latest sources, as would be reasonable with all evolving open source lisp apps, you should get the git sources.

$ sudo emerge -av stumpwm-cvs

It will pull other dependencies--especially a lisp implementation. SBCL (dev-lisp/sbcl) is a good choice but may be a little slow. After it is installed, you can start it any way you like.

Starting

Compiled from Git

Simply run /usr/local/bin/stumpwm.

Other

/usr/bin/stumpwm
#!/bin/sh
sbcl --load /home/your_username/stumpwm > /var/log/stumpwmlog 2>&1
(asdf:oos 'asdf:load-op :stumpwm)
(stumpwm:stumpwm)

Basic Usage

Stumpwm looks and acts very similar to Ratpoison. It wouldn't be a bad idea to read that article.

.stumpwmrc

Google. ;)
