A tiling window manager for X11Project mention: what machines have you used for development, and what do you prefer? | /r/webdev | 2023-07-04
I use MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid-2014) with Manjaro as OS using i3 as a window manager. It isn't perfect, but I'm thrilled with it. I have been a Mac OS user for the last 15 years and wouldn't change what I have now for a Mac OS because I don't need more than what I'm using for development.

Gromit-MPX is an on-screen annotation tool that works with any Unix desktop environment under X11 as well as Wayland.Project mention: Ask HN: What lesser-known accessories do you use with your computer? | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-04-03
I have an XP-Pen as well. Works great in Linux. I'm still amazed at how high quality these non-Wacom tablets are today. I had one of those cheap 6" Wacom Graphites back in the early 2000s and that was the best you could get. My XP-Pen blows that thing away. Still haven't found a great place to put it though. I'm just stashing it off to the side but it's awkward moving it around all the time.
If you're on Linux, Gromit-MPX is a great companion app to annotate anything on your desktop. https://github.com/bk138/gromit-mpx

The Nano-X Window SystemProject mention: Tinyx – resurrected Xvesa from the depths of Git history | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-06-27
If we look at this directory:
Most notably the source files that start with 'scr_', and of those most notably: scr_sdl2.c, scr_win32.c, scr_x11.c, scr_djvesa.c, scr_fb.c -- we see that this windowing system can apparently run on top of an existing windowing system, whether that system is SDL2, Win32, X11, VESA, Linux's framebuffer -- or several others.
Which makes it interesting and worthy of study...
Note that I am sure there are probably a whole lot of other windowing systems out there that also support these, let's call them "back-end" (for lack of better terminology) pre-existing windowing systems.
In other words, a windowing system -- on top of another windowing system...
Sort of like running X on top of Win32, or Win32 on top X...
But the posibilities of higher level and lower level windowing system are really unlimited -- mix and match, basically...
In conclusion -- excellent link!

X11 window swallowerProject mention: KDE window swallowing | /r/kde | 2023-04-29
is there anyway to get window swallowing in KDE like in the dwm swallowing patch? basically window swallowing is one window replacing another, for example if i start a graphical program like mpv from the terminal, the mpv window will replace the terminal window until i close out of mpv. i tried using the devour script (https://github.com/salman-abedin/devour) but it doesn't work that well in a floating window manager because windows start at different sizes. is there a way to get this functionality from KDE itself?
