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

22 Running dwm
23 -----------
24 Add the following line to your .xinitrc to start dwm using startx:
25
26 exec dwm
27
28 In order to connect dwm to a specific display, make sure that
29 the DISPLAY environment variable is set correctly, e.g.:
30
31 DISPLAY=foo.bar:1 exec dwm
32
33 (This will start dwm on display :1 of the host foo.bar.)
34
35 In order to display status info in the bar, you can do something
36 like this in your .xinitrc:
37
38 while xsetroot -name "`date` `uptime | sed 's/.*,//'`"
39 do
40 sleep 1
41 done &
42 exec dwm
