Luke's build of dwm


What are the bindings?

This is suckless, mmmbud, the source code is the documentation! Check out config.h.

Okay, okay, actually I keep a readme in for my whole system, including the binds here. Press super+F1 to view it in dwm (zathura is required for that binding). I haven't kept man dwm/dwm.1 updated though. PRs welcome on that, lol.

Patches and features

  • Clickable statusbar with my build of dwmblocks.
  • Reads xresources colors/variables (i.e. works with pywal, etc.).
  • scratchpad: Accessible with mod+shift+enter.
  • New layouts: bstack, fibonacci, deck, centered master and more. All bound to keys super+(shift+)t/y/u/i.
  • True fullscreen (super+f) and prevents focus shifting.
  • Windows can be made sticky (super+s).
  • stacker: Move windows up the stack manually (super-K/J).
  • shiftview: Cycle through tags (super+g/;).
  • vanitygaps: Gaps allowed across all layouts.
  • swallow patch: if a program run from a terminal would make it inoperable, it temporarily takes its place to save space.

Installation for newbs

git clone
cd dwm
sudo make install

Users of Arch-based distros can also install it from the AUR as dwm-luke-git.

Please install libxft-bgra!

This build of dwm does not block color emoji in the status/info bar, so you must install libxft-bgra from the AUR, which fixes a libxft color emoji rendering problem, otherwise dwm will crash upon trying to render one. Hopefully this fix will be in all libxft soon enough.
