tvtwm is Tom LaStrange’s modified version of the twm window manager: Tom’s
Virtual TWM. Somewhat unusually, tvtwm modelled the screen as a single
large window and the display was a viewport that could be shifted around
it, rather than the now-standard model of distinct virtual desktops.
I’m trying to rebuild the history of its releases. I have the initial
release, and the first 6 patches Tom published via comp.sources.x, the 7th
patch from the X11R5 contrib tape, the 10th patch from the X11R6 contrib
tape, the widely available patch 11, and an incomplete patch 12 via
personal email from Chris Ross, who took over maintenance from Tom at some
Tom doesn't have anything from yhis time period....
So, I’m looking for patch 8 and/or patch 9 (either one would do, since I
can reconstruct the other from what I have plus one).
I’ve failed to find either of them. I’m not sure how they were
distributed, and my searches have proven fruitless so far.
Does anyone here happen to have a trove of X11 window manager source code
During this era there were a dozen or five Internet CDROM collections of
sources, etc. You may have to scrounge them to find these... I'll see of
any of my images have anything useful... but the initial search isn't
Thanks in advance,
