Not sure about the autofocus on new windows. I am sure you can do it.
Rox filer grabs focus when it comes up. You can change to click to
focus by changing the action file. In .waimea/actions there are various
files that control these sorts of things. I just looked thru those and
some files online to figure it out.
To tell the truth I found that kahakai is a better window manager but it
has trouble with xinerama and no one is working on that project anymore.
i am going to play around with my action files tonight and see ifi can
learn a few new tihngs. these super configurable window managers can be
a bit of a pain to learn but once you learn them they are truely the
best. you can make them do whatever you wish!
