A very stupid window manager.

Overview
vswm - very stupid window manager
=================================

Probably the most stupid window manager ever created, written over an ancient
relic of a library called Xlib -- a library so old that it preceeded the birth
of planet Earth itself.

- There are no workspaces.
- All windows are maximised.
- Windows can not be moved or resized.
- Only one window is visible at a time.
- This certainly isn't for everyone.

XF86_AudioLowerVolume    pamixer -d 5
XF86_AudioRaiseVolume    pamixer -i 5
XF86_AudioMute           pamixer -t

    external monitor, if e.g. screen size differ.
