XMonad


Read me first

After installing, you'll have an xmonad binary on your system. From there, you'll need to wire xmonad up to your login manager.

Linux

Arch

 $ pacman -S xmonad         # for the core package
 $ pacman -S xmonad-contrib # for the contrib package

See xmonad on ArchWiki for more info.

Debian

Fedora

Gentoo

 $ emerge xmonad-contrib 
 # the contrib package depends on xmonad so it gets also installed
 if you only want to install xmonad without contrib you could use:
 $ emerge xmonad

Gobo

NixOS

Slackware

Source Mage

Ubuntu

 $ apt-get install libghc6-xmonad-contrib-dev # for all of xmonad core and xmonad-contrib

or else:

 $ apt-get install libghc6-xmonad-dev         # for just xmonad core

or else:

 $ apt-get install xmonad                     # for just the xmonad binary, without the ability to configure

Note: On Hardy Heron and earlier, the libghc6-x11-dev package was compiled without Xinerama support. This means that if you want multi-monitor support, you will either need to upgrade to Intrepid Ibez or install xmonad (and the Haskell X11 library on which it depends) through one of the #Generic options.

BSD

FreeBSD

NetBSD

OpenBSD

xmonad is in the ports tree. To install it,

 sudo pkg_add xmonad

Mac OS X

Generic

From tarball

From Hackage

xmonad can be installed from source on any system with an up-to-date Haskell toolchain:

 $ cabal install xmonad
