A nice single monitor setup: run a minimal KDE under Windowmaker or
then, in KDE, in the window behaviour settings panel, set
'active desktop borders always on, except when moving windows'
so for example, open zynaddsubfx, open a couple of its synth programming
and drag them to a neighboring desktop, and, with the
mouse scrollwheel set to
'scroll thru desktops' (in 'multiple desktops settings panel)
(and while there, add lots of desktops!)), now,
each nudge of the mousewheel goes to the next desktop, but an errant
mousegesture can't suddenly
terrify you by crossing the once penetratable 'active desktop border'.
You lose 'virtual' desktop space, but regain it with wonderfully
accessable multiple desktop space.
I run konqueror filemanager on screen 1, qjackctl and vkeybd on #2, zyn
and a vkeybd on #3, creox
and a vkeybd on #4, ecamegapedal and a vkeybd on #5, highlife vsthost on
#6, and open the chosen
vst gui, and drag it to #6, and add a vkeybd...I can quicky choose and
test fx from creox and eca
with vkeybd, as well as testing sounds from whatever synths...sky is the
limit, let your imagination
run wild...2 22inch monitors, with 10 scrollable desktops each? Bill Gates
certainly didn't make it
possible! Thankyou and Merry Christmas to all the great coders out there
who mmake free or afforable
software...a true abundance of riches!
