Description:

Antico Deluxe is a fork of famous Antico WM/DE (http://antico.wordpress.com/), with some new features added and many new planned.

The goal is to create a Window/Desktop manager simple and fast, with very aesthetic
and familiar look and feel.
A very few parameters must be configured from few files, avoiding unnecessary complications, following the K.I.S.S. philosophy. Any other configurations like themes, icons etc. should be avoided. Keeping in very small size while having relatively rich feature set makes AnticoDeluxe very suitable for netbooks and low-end computers.

***********
FEATURES
***********

The overall look and feel have to be very close to MacOSX look and feel, which is ORIGINAL WORK FROM APPLE INC.

Project consist of:
1. AMELIB - support library - should be keep as small as possible, with very few classes.
2. Desktop without icons for now.
3. The Top Bar with system and applications menu, and few useful widgets/plugins.
4. The bottom Dock, which acts as taskbar and iconic application launcher.
5. NOT STARTED: File Manager
6. STARTED: System Preferences app.
7. NOT STARTED: some day-to-day use applications like text editor, picture viewer etc.
8. NOT STARTED: Login Manager

How to build:
qmake
make
make install

How to start:
Just quit your current X session and on login - select Antico Deluxe session ...
or use "test" or "myxephyr" script into antico directory

compiles like a charm.

try to remove rounding brackets after return keyword... and tell me if it works.

i can't figure out what to put in my .xinitrc file in order to start antico using startx. (can't read error messages either thanks to my nvidia driver.)

In order to start AnticoDeluxe from .xinitrc put into the file an exec line like this:
exec /usr/local/bin/antico-deluxe &
or use Xsession script provided and start AnticoDeluxe session

i tried that, but what happens is an X will appear and then it crashes. as i already mentioned, my screwball nvidia driver won't let me see any error messages. thanks for the response.

It could be happened in AnticoDeluxe startup code when trying to find any other processes to decorate with window borders. Try to remove autostarted programs (via xinitrc). I'll check startup code again. Thanks for the report.

Meanwhile, you can start AnticoDeluxe in Xephyr by using .test script - already included.... or you can start X without WM, just a simple terminal and then type a command above to see what happened.
And have a look at logs files - it may help you.

Happy New Year.
