After few years with fluxbox it was time to search for something else. Inspired by a friend of mine i searched for tiling window manager.
The ion has some legal problems, i tried out a fork called notion. After a reading the man page and using the windowmanager for a view hours, it is impressive how great it works out of the box. There is also another fork called anion3, just to mention it. There is a already builded package for debian/amd64 behind this link.
Thats why i started writing my howto and want to present it to you but also to me . The "mod1" key should be "alt"-left but you can figure it out by calling "xmodmap" on your console.
|mod1+f3||execute lua code|
|f5||file to edit|
|f6||file to view|
|f9||create new workspace|
|mod1+,||cycle workspace backward|
|mod1+.||cycle workspace forward|
|mod1+c||close current object|
|mod1+k h||maximize frame horizontal|
|mod1+k v||maximize frame vertical|
|mod1+r||begin move/reszie mod|
left -> grow in direction
shift left -> shrink in direction
|mod1+g||query client window to go|
|mod1+m||display context menu|
|mod1+k d||de-/reattach an object from frame|
|mod1+k 1||switch to first object in current frame|
|mod1+k b||tile frame|
|mod1+k x||destroy frame|
|mod1+s||split frame vertically|
|mod1+k s||split frame horizontally|
|mod1+k c||clears client owning window|
|mod1+return||toggle client windows to full screen mode|
