here's a simple .scrotwm.conf, .Xdefaults and .bashrchttp://ompldr.org/vNmx2cw
All 3 are DOT files, so you'll need to enable your file manager to show hidden files (Ctrl + H in Nautilus, Thunar, etc)
Back up your existing .scrotwm.conf, .Xdefaults (if you have one) and .bashrc first
Then paste the .scrotwm.conf and .Xdefaults included in the zip into your home folder.
I've set both of them to use URxvt as the terminal emulator, so make sure you install that first (you can also edit the configs to make it use your preferred terminal if you know how, but if you're still learning and unsure, just use my suggestion first)
URxvt can be found in your repos under the "rxvt-unicode" package.
Also make sure you install terminus fonts, "xfonts-terminus" (I think Ubuntu pulls this in automatically when you install a ScrotWM or DWM, but I'm not 100% sure, so do it anyway (your package manager or Synaptic should tell you if it's installed already)
Note: If you don't understand this paragraph, don't worry... just ignore.
The .bashrc, don't touch until you're more familiar with bash. I don't use bash myself (I prefer ZSH) so I'm a bit behind with bash prompt editing. If you open it in a text editor, go to line 84 and 85 for your bash prompt. Just replace "User" and "Host" with whatever nick you want as a start. If you do some reading on Bash (Archwiki is a good place to learn), then you can do much more if you want.... or change to Zsh one day =P
That should be enough to get you started. Remember to read the .scrotwm.conf first to give you an idea of the keybindings. I've changed the Mod/Meta key to Mod4 (the Windows/Super key on your keyboard), to prevent conflicts with certain apps that use Mod1. I've also added quirks for Nautilus (which I assume is your file manager) and Firefox (at the end of the file)

man. i tried scrotwm and it feel sexy
just 1 problem tho.. how to enable my wifi connection?
Ah, are you using Network Manager as your default network app?
I'm not sure, cos I've not used network manager in a looooong time.
I prefer Wicd, and wicd-curses (the cli/terminal version) is what I use for my setups.
Wicd is actually better and lighter than network manager, but the disadvantage is that it doesn't support 3G USB dongles (maxis, celcom,etc) If you're just connecting via wifi to your router, it should work fine.
You can install wicd and wicd-curses and without removing network manager (I think). that way, your Gnome session will default to network manager and you can run wicd-curses from the terminal in scrotwm to configure your wireless connection. (note, if you install wicd from Gnome while network manager is running, it will give a message saying initialization failed, but ignore that... you can still run it as stand-alone from Scrotwm)
Like I said, I don't use Ubuntu/Fedora or Gnome or Network Manager, so I'm not 100% sure what your package management will do (sometimes Ubuntu will remove stuff), so pay attention to the output. Don't kill me if you bork your wireless This post has been edited by G-17: Dec 18 2010, 09:11 AM
