^ Just in time; borked my vsido install trying to get nvidia drivers installed. It use to be so easy to get that done; now .... not so much.
Tinkering around, Xfce4 with bspwm as the window manager. True tiling with xfce4 session and desktop management:
xfce4 still handles the key bindings which is nice (and a bit of a surprise). Entering the bspwm window commands in xfce4 was a bit tedious, but so far worth it. Pretty smooth operations so far. Need to do something with the taskbar. Like most tilers bspwm doesn't support "iconify" (spectrwm is the only one that does as far as I know) so the iconbar is kind of pointless.
