After years of working on thousands of systems around the world x9wm was crafted out of opensource, public domain and MIT licensed code. x9wm has its roots in 9wm, 8-1/2, w9wm and code that came out of the Bell Labs plan 9 operating system project. One of the main goals was to create a real-estate free (as in it takes up NONE of my desktop visually to use) and it uses a standard set of operations with a standard three button mouse.
In addition x9wm added a Left-mouse menu that was built-in and could edited on the fly (more features coming soon) and that placement and sizing could be rapid and smooth regardless of screen size. In addition to work in video and network operaitons multi-windows were a must and with standard window managers a lot of visual junk was interfering with a pure information interaction and viewing model.
Various griding and placement options inlcuding use with mult-head setups that can be recalled is being contemplated to assure powerful instant information can be available at a single click
OK now we have a live Jessie Build (testing) of x9wm linux that
requires no install. Just install to usb flash drive with
unetbootin, LiveLinux or just copy with the following command under
# cp debian.iso /dev/sdX - where sdX is the your flash drive /dev/sdb etc... # sync
Note: Debian Live Installer is GUI based for systems with more than 4Gig RAM. For netbooks, laptops or older systems please select the Graphical Install option - and if that won't fly then it will fall-back to a text-mode install - Recommened to have at least 8 Gigs free space, Dual Core (PAE) Processor (ie ASUS EEE PC and above) will work on 686-PAE+, multi-core Intel i5,7, Amd64 bit machines also . For 64bit install AMD64 version.
Also note if you have issues with your network settings then skip these steps in the install "configure network", "configure mirror" and you should be fine. Upon boot drivers to address all systems will be available
After install edit /etc/sudoers as root user and add line:
your-login-user-name ALL=(ALL:ALL) NOPASSWD: ALL
the username is the one you created when you installed the system. Please note your root and username passwords - you will need them to customize the system. The above live will enable all root access menu items - enjoy! (more install tips soon). In addition menu is editable in in the menu itself (JOE editor is default - you can change to VIM or SubLime3, LeafPad... which is located in /usr/share/x9wm/x9wm.config.
After you login the first time - you will need to do a few things that we will note here so that your system will be ready for use and you can start settings up x9wm for your personal needs.
First Add mirrors by editing the file as "root" (ie "su -" to get
root) then edit the file using jstar,joe,vim or ed add the following
lines to /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main contrib non-free
Now type as root "apt-get update" to populate the mirror and apt database. You now can install any Wheezy debian stable software you need.
Menu items are scripts in /usr/share/x9wm/bin - which are based on aterm for command-line stuff or call-out any program in the system with custom environment settings or root access with ease to create your own 1-click to what-ever you need with out any distractions or extra window manager bloat. Enjoy a simple, clean, distraction free window environment and get stuff done. x9wm has been used for years by private admins in some top establishments (we can't say who -this public version will address that). Be creative in making your menus and scripts and enjoy yourself in x9wm. I know that I do.
All the best - x9wm Linux Project
