- sometimes rage/terminology application does not start by clicking
icon on shelf. fix it by adding following line in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/e-apps.conf
/usr/local/lib
and then run `sudo ldconfig`
this generally happens if you install applications from source.
- use paper theme - it looks super awesome with raster's dark theme.
- reduce the size of shelf to 24 pixels. looks more decent.
- to configure the environment variable which window manager might need to hv -> create files in /etc/profile.d/proxy.sh and include lines like below
export http_proxy="http://10....:8080"
export https_proxy="..."
- To disable tooltips on shelf icons, right click on one of icon -> Ibar -> settings -> unclick 'show icon label'
- use slim as login manager
  sudo pacman -S slim
  vim /etc/slim.conf
  change default user -
  enable auto login

  and disable gdm

- use Xephyr to create a new display inside a window manager and run E
to it.
  Xephyr -screen 800x600 -ac :1

  on different terminal,
    export DISPLAY=:1
