boring-window-switcher

screen shot

A boring window switcher for X11 desktop environments.

Unlike many other window switchers, this is NOT a daemon. This is just a regular Gtk+ application that shows windows currently open, and raises the window the user selects. It does not do any tricky keyboard grabbing.

How to Install

To build this program, you need development files of GTK+ and Xlib. On Ubuntu, you can install them by

$ sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-dev libx11-dev

Then the easiest way to install this program is to use git and stack. Just clone this repository, build the source and install.

$ git clone https://github.com/debug-ito/boring-window-switcher.git
$ cd boring-window-switcher
$ stack --install-ghc install

Building gtk takes long time. Be patient.

Alternatively, you can install this program directly from hackage: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/boring-window-switcher

How to Run

$ boring-window-switcher

Probably you should use other feature-rich window switchers.
