A Qt based window manager


screenshot

Introduction:

qlwm is yet another window manager for the X11 system. Because it makes heavy use of a high level API it can be kept small, stable and easy to maintain. One of the design rules was to get a non-intrusive environment that does not bother the user with unnecessary details or features while providing comfort and high functionality.

The size of the gzipped archive is currently around 50kb and code size is around 5000 lines. So far I have tried this with Qt2 on a 486/33 with 16MB and it felt fast. Qlwm is available for Qt2, Qt3 and Qt4.

Other properties:

Another useful feature is the possibility to obtain it:
qlwm-4.2.tar.gz
qlwm-4.3.tar.gz

Older versions for Qt2 and Qt3 (not maintained anymore):
qlwm-2.6.tar.gz
qlwm-3.1.tar.gz
