(Sorry for the inconvenience)

Awesome is a highly configurable and fast window manager that is primarily targeted at power users who prefer to use the command line within their graphical environment.

Figure 5.5a shows a screenshot of Awesome running on PC-BSD 9.0. The user has right-clicked the desktop in order to launch the awesome application manager.

Figure 5.5a:


If you click awesome -> manual, the man page for awesome will open in a terminal. If you click awesome -> edit config, the awesome configuration file will open in the ee text editor. The numbers in the upper left corner represent virtual desktops. For example, you can have different terminals open in each virtual desktop.

Update Manager, Wireless Configuration Manager (if your wireless card is detected), and Life Preserver are located in the system tray near the clock in the upper right corner. If you wish to access Control Panel type pc-controlpanel in a terminal. If you wish to manage PBI software, use PBI Manager from a terminal.
