XMonad

Introduction

This page is based on my very limited experience of LXDE and XMonad.

I'm assuming you are using lxsession to start LXDE.

Configuring LXDE to work with XMonad

Create the file ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/desktop.conf with the content

[Session]
window_manager=xmonad

If you use the panel you'll soon realise that the pager has somewhat limited usefulness. An alternative, which is more useful and takes up less space to boot, is the "Desktop number / Workspace name" panel item.

Configuring XMonad to work with LXDE

A minimal XMonad configuration that works nicely with LXDE looks like this

main = xmonad $ desktopConfig { terminal = "lxterminal" }
