Tips for Xmonad in Ubuntu

1 Without a Desktop Environment

Here are tips on using xmonad in any of the Ubuntu distributions without loading XFCE or a full Gnome session.

1.1 Automounting removable media

Removable media is mounted using a volume manager. Normally, Nautilus takes care of this in Gnome and Thunar for XFCE.

There are several lightweight volume manager choices.

  • skvm aims for simplicity and speed.
  • Ivman was originally only for automounting, but now it can run arbitrary commands when a HAL event (closed laptop lid, a certain device is attached) is received.
  • Thunar, XFCE's file manager, can be run as a daemon (thunar --daemon). It can be configured via its GUI to not open a file listing when a device is inserted.

1.2 Tray applications

Trayer has been removed from the repositories in Karmic but is still available in the Ubuntu archives: Trayer for Ubuntu Karmic.

There is also a PPA by user gspr which contains trayer.
