bluetile: full-featured tiling for the GNOME desktop environment

[ bsd3, program, system ] [ Propose Tags ]

Bluetile is a tiling window manager for Linux, designed to integrate with the GNOME desktop environment. It provides both a traditional, stacking layout mode as well as tiling layouts where windows are arranged to use the entire screen without overlapping. Bluetile tries to make the tiling paradigm easily accessible to users coming from traditional window managers by drawing on known conventions and providing both mouse and keyboard access for all features.

Readme for bluetile-0.6

[back to package description]
Quickstart: After installing Bluetile (use 'cabal install') just open a
terminal under your current window manager/desktop environment
(preferably GNOME) and enter 'bluetile' or '/path/to/bluetile' if it's not
in your PATH. Bluetile will replace the currently running window manager
(if the window manager supports this) and start up.

See the man page of Bluetile for further information - including how to
set up Bluetile as your permanent window manager.
