I use E17 as my basic desktop (and MATE as my second), and I'm happy with it, but I'd liked to test new things, so I've downloaded dwm and dmenu from Portage.
Code:
 # eix dwm
[I] x11-wm/dwm
     Available versions:  6.0 {savedconfig xinerama}
     Installed versions:  6.0(11:09:25 PM 10/22/2014)(-savedconfig -xinerama)
     Homepage:            http://dwm.suckless.org/
     Description:         a dynamic window manager for X11


Code:
# eix dmenu
[I] x11-misc/dmenu
     Available versions:  4.5-r3 ~4.5-r4 **9999 {savedconfig xft xinerama}
     Installed versions:  4.5-r3(11:12:28 PM 10/22/2014)(xft -xinerama)
     Homepage:            http://tools.suckless.org/dmenu/
     Description:         a generic, highly customizable, and efficient menu for the X Window System


I tried to test it, so I picked dwm from the sessions. I saw the dwm environment, and my mouse was moving, I tried some keyboard orders from the tutorial (http://dwm.suckless.org/tutorial) like the Alt+p or Shift-Alt-Enter. but nothing happened! :cry:
What have to do, to see dwm in action? :?
