Tiling window managers seems in vogue these days.  ;D

Yes, especially with Archlinux users. I first started with a tiling terminal called Termiantor (using devilspie to embed it)..... it worked good for the few console apps I use like MPD and vim.


But the main thing that made me switch was that I've been having this NVIDIA "tearing" issue with my videos when using xfwm4 compositing and compiz compositing. So I figured that I could install a tiling WM that doesn't use compositing and I wouldn't need the drop shadows and stuff with a tiling window manager. (I had been turning my xfwm4 compositing off to watch movies for the last few months but I got tired of doing this)


Using Xmonad has fixed my NVIDIA "tearing" issue. And my xfce4 Terminal is still able to use transparency.


This is only my third day on Xmonad (with xfce4), and I'm still configuring it and learning to use it..... but so far I like it very much. I've even managed to bind my numpad keys to be used for all my workspaces and my most used mod and mod shift commands..... which is totally cool since I have a 17"inch laptop that I always felt had a cramped off-centered feeling to it due to the numpad keys which I never used.

Hi and sorry for my late reply, I was a bit busy these last days.

I recently encountered a similar "tearing" issue with my NVIDIA cards and I'm not sure if this comes from an updated NVIDIA driver, X server, xrandr, dri, etc. What is strange, is that this does not occur with the NV driver. I'll certainly try Nouveau when I'll have time to read more about it. Personally, I'm not a fan of all these tilling WM. I prefer to manage the placement of my opened apps myself. For the "tearing" issue, I have created two launchers using xfconf-query to quickly enable or disable the compositor.

Hey, no worries. Creating those launchers sounds like a really good idea.


As for the NVIDIA issue I heard that the cards with vdpau are better. I don't have one of these cards (GeForce 7150m), so when running xfwm4 w/compositing or compiz I got the most tearing when the video had a lot of movement on the screen (like in an action scene)..... but using no compositing fixed that for me.


As for the tiling WM, the more I use Xmonad the more I like it. I can configure certain windows to "doFloat" so that I can place them wherever, or re-size them. I have GIMP floating, and all of my firefox utils, and xfce4 apps like "Appearance", "Xfce4-screenshoter-plugin" and "xfrun" are all floated in the center of my screen..... Pressing Alt + 'left-click' can drag any floating window around and it can change any tiled window into a floated window, pressing Alt+'right-click' will re-size any floated window (what I love about this is that you don't have to have the mouse in the corner to re-size the app).


This is how my GIMP opens each time (I have it configured to "doFloat"):

Gimp will open with the same window placement and size each time, and if I change gimp to another workspace the positions of all 3 windows stay in the exact place and same size for the next workspace. I'm liking that.

See the most recently dated Gtk+ theme ^ there. Won't be exactly the same, I just take occasional snapshots of my evolving theme.
