On the Sawfish Wikia, there's a beautiful image:

Does anyone know how to configure sawfish to look like this? I can't find any docs regarding this picture/desktop.


His sawfish.rc is on github here: https://github.com/ZaneA/Dotfiles/blob/master/rc

and there are links to the GTK theme and sawfish theme in that screenshot on his deviantart page here: http://hashbox.deviantart.com/art/Arch-170211-197724511

  • so e.g.: after an ubuntu minimal install i just apt-get install sawfish, then echo "xinit /usr/bin/sawfish" >> /home/USERNAME/.bashrc then log off, log in, then sawfish starts, ok, then i just put the code from github to the ~/.sawfish/rc file then install theme, then presto? :P – LanceBaynes May 30 '11 at 5:28
  • I've not used sawfish, so I don't know. There is a wiki that seems to have all of that sort of information: sawfish.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page – jasonwryan May 30 '11 at 5:31

    Putting xinit into ~/.bashrc sounds like a very, very bad idea given that that file is sourced every time you open a terminal window... – Shadur May 30 '11 at 7:10
  • then where to put "xinit /usr/bin/sawfish" ? :P thanks for the warning.. – LanceBaynes May 30 '11 at 8:09

    If you are using it as a standalone window manager, then create an .xinitrc file. See the wiki sawfish.wikia.com/wiki/User_Guide – jasonwryan May 30 '11 at 8:31
