mcwm (Minimalist X11 floating window manager)

mcwm is a minimalist window manager for the X Window System written
directly on top of the X protocol C-language Binding, XCB. It is a
traditional floating window manager with no fancy smarts like those in
modern tiling window managers.

In mcwm all functions are available from the keyboard but a pointing
device can be used for move, resize and raise/lower.


* Small.
* Fast.
* No icons. (But it can hide windows completely.)
* Sloppy focus.
* Toggling vertical and full screen maximizing.
* Virtual screens/workspaces.
* Crash proof window placement.
* Only users can move and resize windows.
* Multihead support.
* Good keyboard control.
* No garish decorations (only 1 pixel border by default).
* Written in straight C (C99).
* Written using only XCB.
* Few dependencies.

Since most config options are compiled in, rather than read from
a config file, this build allows a user-supplied config.h. To
customize the config, use a sequence of commands like:

# sh
# vi config.h # or emacs, nano, etc
# ./mcwm.SlackBuild

If there's a config.h in the SlackBuild's directory, it will be
used instead of the default one.

This requires: xdotool, 9menu
