New Windows Manager:

I'm loving* XMonad in all its key based navigational glory!

  • CheatSheet
  • Tour
  • At Ubuntu login - select 'xmonad' as the window manager
  • Mod-Shift-Enter to start

Use dmenu to launch apps.
Run dmenu like this:

  • dmenu_run     [in XMonad type mod-p]
  • Troubleshooting:
    • dmenu can't handle spaces 
    • dmenu doesn't understand folders - so symlink to the exact file to be executed
      • ln -s  '/usr/local/bin/Sublime Text 2/sublime_text'  /usr/local/bin/sub 

* = As long as I can get the damn thing configured right
