Your Latest Workflow Improvement - Desktop Customization & Workflow
Wildefyr
Well, I'm currently writing my environment around cwm after z3bra's suggestion. It has some really nice defaults, and I've been using it almost completely around the mouse. Haven't got around to trying the groups functionality yet as I haven't had the time, but it sounds nice and simple to use as all you do is say you want this window class to go into this group by default which is basically what I mugged around with wew and my own groups script for a couple a years.

RE: Remapping ESC to capslock is wasted potential. Map it to control instead and get a programmable board like the pok3r so it'll be the same no matter what machine you are on.

ESC -> CapsLock is the best thing for those who don't have the luxury of buying a pok3r keyboard. I have multiple keyboards with ESC -> CapsLock and never had an issue.

Instead of remapping anything, I use this in vimrc
Code:
imap jk <Esc>

Pressing j k quickly is enough

Well you can still map LCtrl to capslock as well.. I like ctrl personally especially on 70% or smaller boards as the ESC key gets repositioned right next to 1, replacing tilde/grave, most of these boards can be found cheaper than a pok3r as well. Even so, take vi for example, C-c will exit out of insert mode, which I'm sure we're all used to doing anyway.

My latest workflow improvement has been abandoning my extremely customized rice that also used my own wm and other home-made tools, to be honest.

I used KDE Plasma after that for a while, I still use it on my laptop. It is the BEST DE experience you can have on Linux, it's very polished and integrated, too bad Qt looks kinda bad.

I am now using a very lightly configured openbox setup, with a stolen theme with altered colors and a terminal theme that doesn't match the setup at all, for the sake of contrast (This one). I haven't even configured stuff like workspace rules, because I usually have very few windows. I don't even use workspaces, even though sometimes I think that I should. I also have a dock with auto-hide (yes, I use the mouse) and jgmenu to launch stuff.

I am looking into switching to light color schemes. White on black text is much easier to read than black on white.

Code:
setxkbmap -option caps:ctrl_modifier
xcape -e 'Caps_Lock=Escape'

With the commands above you will have BOTH control (while held down) AND esc (when tapped) on caps lock.

I have something similar for my setup, and this gives user the best of both worlds.

Yeah, but why hit two keys to exit when you can hit just one ;)

Because timeouts.

I have recently replaced Zotero (bibliography management) with 3 shell scripts which extract DOI numbers from PDFs, extract bibliography information from PDFs, and downlaod PDFs. And then I moved a bit further, and replaced Calibre with… well nothing, just directories with epub files & rsync for when I plug my e-reader.

Simply put, tmux. I don't know why it took me so long to try out. Now having so many dwm tags seems pointless.
