I recently upgraded to the latest recommended snapshot of wmii (wmii+ixp-20070516). All is great, but now I have these odd little corners (about 3 pixels) in the upper left and right corners of my screen. From reading the mailing lists, these are “layout boxes”. Honestly, I don’t know what that means, and I have not found a use for them. I almost always keep everything maximized.
Unfortunately, these little corners totally kill the “clean look” I liked about the wmii screenshots (yes, I’m picky). Furthermore, I was told I can’t get rid of them!
Never fear, I went into the source and killed the part that draws them, so they are gone for good.
Here’s the patch:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18
To apply this, you’ll need the latest recommended snapshot, which at the time of this writing is wmii+ixp-20070516. Download snapshots here http://www.suckless.org/snaps/. Then go into the root of your wmii source directory and do:
Then “make” like normal.
