Sorry for the inconvenience.  Chance of typos in templates, the navigation header should be functional for most versions of the handbook.
Potential remains for unforeseen breakage primarily in the handbook portion of the wiki.
Notice will be up until above verified and no other troubles found from recent modifications.

ScrotWM is a minimalist window manager written by OpenBSD hackers. It provides keyboard shortcuts, a configuration file, and assumes that the user prefers to use the command line. If you haven't used ScrotWM before, spend some time reading through its man page first.

Figure 5.9a provides a screenshot of ScrotWM running on a PC-BSD system:

To launch applications within ScrotWM, start an xterm by pressing ALT SHIFT RETURN. Once you have an xterm, you can start any program you wish. For example, to start Control Panel:

gksu pc-controlpanel

NOTE: ScrotWM does not provide minimize, maximize, or close buttons within its windows. To close a GUI application, use CTRL c within the xterm you used to launch the application.
