Fluxspace seeks to add advanced desktop functionality to pure window managers, like Fluxbox. The approach is to leverage existing tools, like Rox Filer and Idesk, with a flexible and modular Python API. Existing modules support desktop icons, panels, dockapp startup and swapping, and wallpaper management. Current features allow each workspace to have its own unique panel, icons, wallpaper, and running applets. Creating new Python modules is easy.
wmalbum is a Window Maker dock applet that displays album covers for songs being played by XMMS. You must already have images of the album covers stored near the file being played. WMAlbum provides a handy circular menu for play/skip/etc, adjusts volume using the mouse wheel, and can replace wmxmms.
The JScrollDesktopPane Swing component for Java provides a virtual desktop replete with dynamic scroll bars, dynamic menus, and dynamic button shortcuts. The JScrollDesktopPane class surmounts the limitations of the original JDesktopPane Swing component, offering a solution to the clipping and overlap problems inherit to said component, and mimics the interface of the original JDesktopPane to provide an easy upgrade path. It provides a scrolling MDI desktop, one of the most requested features to the Java JDK.
wmwork provides a monitor on a 64x64 mini window that helps you keeping track of your time. The idea is based on the Worklog program. In contrast to Worklog, wmwork is a graphical application designed to work with the Window Maker dock, but will also work with other window managers.
