Fenet

Posted in

Fenet is WM and compositor manager. It allows one to choose a WM to start upon LeechCraft startup from a list of supported ones, as well as control and configure a compositing manager, if desired.

Fenet also installs a .desktop file for login managers to know about LeechCraft as a desktop environment.

Fenet is active only in desktop mode, thus there is no need to disable it if running LeechCraft as a DE isn't planned.

Supported WMs

  • Awesome
  • KWin
  • Openbox

Supported compositors

  • compton

For other compositors a file like this should be written.

Adding new WMs

Adding another window manager is a matter of writing a description file in JSON and a shell script to start the WM.

Here are examples for openbox: description and script and for Awesome: description and script.

The script and the JSON description file should have the same base name and sh and json extensions respectively.
