Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.7.2, Package name: herbstluftwm-0.7.2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

herbstluftwm is a manual tiling window manager for X11 using Xlib and Glib.

Its main features can be described with:

- The layout is based on splitting frames into subframes which can be
split again or can be filled with windows (similar to i3 or musca)

- Tags (or workspaces, or virtual desktops) can be added/removed at
runtime. Each tag contains an own layout

- Exactly one tag is viewed on each monitor. The tags are monitor
independent (similar to xmonad)

- It is configured at runtime via IPC calls from herbstclient. So the
configuration file is just a script which is run on startup. (Similar
to wmii or musca)


Required to run:
