bbconf is a GUI configurator for the Blackbox window manager. It's written in C++ and Qt, and uses plugins for extensibility. bbconf is distributed with 4 plugins, and replaces the previously separate Blackbox/bbkeys configurators called toolbox and bbkeysconf. The plugins that come with bbconf are: a theme editor (which replaces toolbox), a keybinding editor modelled after the KDE keybinding editor (which replaces bbkeysconf), a preferences editor for bbconf itself, and a Blackbox menu editor. As time permits, more plugins will be written for bbconf that will allow configuration of all aspects of Blackbox sessions, including Blackbox's rc-file, bbpager, etc.
WMCPULoad is a program to monitor CPU usage. It is a dockapp that is supported by X window managers such as Window Maker, AfterStep, BlackBox, and Enlightenment. It dispalys the current usage, expressed as a percentile and a chart, and has an LCD look-alike user interface. The back light may be turned on/off by clicking the mouse button over the application. If the CPU usage hits a certain threshold, an alarm-mode will alert you by turning the back light on.
xlayout is a terminal-based utility to get and set information about X11 windows and the pointer. It's designed to be easily integrated into bash shell scripts and takes advantage of the X11 protocol to allow it to access remote X11 desktops. With the aid of the libease library, xlayout provides the ability to smoothly ease the windows and pointer into position.
The Virtual Tab Window Manager (VTWM) is a virtual window manager with adjustable graphical complexity. With minimal settings, it is ideal for limited resource situations, using little memory, little CPU time, few colors, and little bandwidth. Fully blown, it supports m4 and regex processing of the resource file, sound effects, user-defined color icons and buttons, and more.
Sherman's aquarium is a screen saver, a GNOME panel applet, and a dock applet that provides an aquarium with fish and/or turtles. In applet mode, it can display lots of information, such as CPU load, temperatures, memory usage, and many other things. Both the applet and the screensaver are very configurable.
