Velox is a dynamic tiling window manager for wayland. It is currently under development.


Install the veloxAUR package, or velox-gitAUR for the development version.

The default terminal emulator for velox is st-wayland-gitAUR[broken link: package not found] as it has great wayland support. Other terminals such as urxvt also work, but only under xwayland.

You probably also want to install dmenu-wayland-gitAUR from the AUR to be able to more easily launch applications.


Velox is configured from a configuration file. The configuration file should be in the users home folder named .velox.conf and the defalt configuration can be found here.

Starting Velox

If you are using the veloxAUR package, you simply execute velox from your terminal.

If you are using velox-gitAUR, you will have to install the package libinput from the extras reposiroty as well as swc-gitAUR from the AUR since the velox-git AUR package is out of date. When these packages are installed, you simply execute swc-launch velox from your terminal.
