      2 ============================

      5 
      6 Requirements
      7 ------------
      8 In order to build dwm you need the Xlib header files.
      9 
     10 
     11 Installation
     12 ------------
     13 Edit config.mk to match your local setup (dwm is installed into
     14 the /usr/local namespace by default).
     15 
     16 Afterwards enter the following command to build and install dwm (if
     17 necessary as root):
     18 
     19     make clean install
     20 
     21 
     22 Patches
     23 -------
     24 All patches are in patches directory, applied patches has additional
     25 executable permission (for readibility reasons - colored ls displays
     26 executables green).
     27 
     28 
     29 Running dwm
     30 -----------
     31 Add the following line to your .xinitrc to start dwm using startx:
     32 
     33     exec dwm
     34 
     35 In order to connect dwm to a specific display, make sure that
     36 the DISPLAY environment variable is set correctly, e.g.:
     37 
     38     DISPLAY=foo.bar:1 exec dwm
     39 
     40 (This will start dwm on display :1 of the host foo.bar.)
     41 
     42 In order to display status info in the bar, you can do something
     43 like this in your .xinitrc:
     44 
     45     while xsetroot -name "`date` `uptime | sed 's/.*,//'`"
     46     do
     47     	sleep 1
     48     done &
     49     exec dwm
     50 
     51 
     52 Configuration
     53 -------------
     54 The configuration of dwm is done by creating a custom config.h
     55 and (re)compiling the source code.
