rio

rio is Plan 9’s native windowing system. Probably better referred to as a “rectangle multiplexer.” Each of the modified versions below ships with the following changes:

- color scheme
- background images with -B

Be sure to read each README, install, and mkfile.

The r script is used to set up the environment and launch rio. Other scripts open windows and programs at pre-determined locations around the screen, based on the automatically detected screen resolution. Read and modify as needed.

Note: Other people have done a better job theming rio.
