    WM framing


    Hi, I would like to try to make a toy window manager, so I've started a basic thing and when it launches applications they start without any frame. So I would like to know how to make the frame of the windows, that will be a point to start.
    Also I haven't found any documentation about how to build a window manager, could you tell where I could find some?
    thanks

    Hi, deehuck! Welcome to LinuxForums!

    I looked around and found this link. I haven't tried to build my own WM, but this looks pretty promising. Good luck, I hope this helps!

    maybe you have copy-pasted the url from the wrong tab in your browser,
    the link you give doesn't give any explanations about how to build a window manager.
