rio is Plan 9’s native windowing system. Probably better referred to
as a “rectangle multiplexer.”
I use a script called r 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. I don’t really use the rest
of these anymore. Read and modify as needed.
Note: Sigrid has modified
theming. This is not (yet?)
in the 9front tree.
