From personal use

  • C^t ? : the MOST important command ;)
  • C^t u : go back to the previous frame setup
  • ratpoison -c "echo message" : display message in the wm
    • practical for notification e.g. Crontab unsuccessful execution
      • requires to export variables related to display e.g. DISPLAY, XAUTHORITY, ...

See my .ratpoisonrc configuration file.

My notes on Tools gather what I know or want to know. Consequently they are not and will never be complete references. For this, official manuals and online communities provide much better answers.
