Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Multiple screens doesn't work for me. It handle it as one large screen. Anyone have this working? It works on Xmonad but not with WMFS.

Here is my config:

#
# This is the default wmfs config file, copy it to
# ~/.config/wmfs/wmfsrc and edit it.
#

# Include file to split configuration
# @include "~/.config/wmfs/menu-wmfsrc"

I use xrandr and have xinerama disabled. xinerama is for having one large desktop right? I remember that WMFS used to hang when I configured the other monitor with xinerama enabled.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Merging into the WMFS thread.

Rather than have WMFS stuff spread over the boards, it would be better to consolidate in the one thread...

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

I use xrandr manually:

xrandr --output VGA1 --auto --right-of LVDS1

LVDS1 = Laptop LCD
VGA1 = External monitor

I tried with --left-of instead and got the same outcome.

How do you use it??

* SORRY!! Aparently now it doesn't work properly in xmonad either. I must have screwed something up by myself. Will have a look at it. Thanks anyway.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Thanks Jason, as if I don't have enough half-finished projects on the go...how can I not try out a new dwm-like window manager after reading your blog post?  smile

I must admit I like the config syntax and built-in system tray (damn I wish Anselm would do this).  The built-in launcher seems nice too, though I still prefer gmrun for this.

What I dislike is the omission of a drawsquare function that indicates a non-active tag is occupied.  I'm not crazy about introducing yet another colour scheme to the bar for this purpose; it just starts to look sloppy.

If anyone is interested, you can find my ongoing test config here:

https://github.com/thayerwilliams/wmfs- … ter/wmfsrc

I'll stick with dwm for now, but they definitely have my attention.

I must agree: I do miss the squares. I was looking at the code in dwm.c over the weekend to see if it was readily importable, but -with no C skills- it appears to be a little trickier than I hoped.

What I really like about WMFS, is that all of the functionality that I patch into dwm is already there - plus some of the stuff I just haven't bothered with, like xft fonts and colours in the status bar, which are just eye-candy but add to the overall usability nonetheless.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

why did i not hear of this before?
also, what's the philosophy behind this? do they aim to be "a more simple awesome", or something?
when i first read the name, i thought it was more like a framework, expecting users to build their own WM's from it (a bit like Xmonad)

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Is it possible to use special characters like ".","/","*" etc. in keybindings?

I've tried to bind "mpc toggle" to Mod4+/ (also tried Mod4+. and Mod4+,) and was unsuccessful.
Here is the line that i've tried:

[key] mod = {"Mod4"} key = "/"  func = "spawn" cmd = "mpc -q toggle" [/key]

Changing / to t works, as expected. Should i escape this characters somehow (backslash escaping doesn't work), or is it so by design?

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

@blin

Try using "slash" instead of "/".

For other characters, either run xev from a terminal, press the desired key, and examine the output, or consult /usr/include/X11/keysymdef.h.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Thanks, BurntSushi.

Thanks to the open source i was able to find screen controling functions. They probably should be included in the default config.

        [key] mod = {"Mod4"} key = "s" func = "screen_next" [/key]
        [key] mod = {"Mod4"} key = "o" func = "client_screen_next" [/key] #send current client to the next screen

I've also encountered a bug https://wmfs.info/issues/72 has anyone else encountered this?

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Is it possible to switch between the floating or free layer and tiling layer ?
For example. I open a terminal on a tag (which is in tile right mode). On that same tag i launch the rdesktop client in free mode.
The rdesktop client will always stay on top.

The only solution i found is to bring focus to the terminal, set it in "max" mode. At that point i can switch with ALT + Tab...

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

You can set up keybindings to toggle between layouts:

# Toggle layouts
[key] mod = {"Mod4"} key = "t" func = "set_layout" cmd = "tile_right" [/key]
[key] mod = {"Mod4"} key = "s" func = "set_layout" cmd = "tile_bottom" [/key]
[key] mod = {"Mod4"} key = "m" func = "set_layout" cmd = "max" [/key]
[key] mod = {"Mod4"} key = "f" func = "set_layout" cmd = "free" [/key]

That's not really what i ment. I would like to keep the client in free mode and bring al tiled clients to the front.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

I am a very happy i3 user, but I am gonna try this out tonight and give it a whirl just for the heck of it. The only thing that worries me is that I shouldn't forget all my i3 shortcuts in trying to learn the wmfs ones wink

Before i3, i used musca adn dwm before that, but I probably wouldn't remember how to do certain things in the earlier tilers. how do you guys keep track of the WM related commands (if you use more than 1 WM)

Map all keybindings the same way across all WM's. It might take a little longer to set up a WM that way, but it makes the transition seamless...

yes but not every WM is capable of doing things that another WM can. you know what I mean ?

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Hello,

I'm also trying wmfs and love it so far. However there is a small issue...

When i try to play a video with mplayer I can no longer switch from fullscreen, pressing 'f' only changes the aspect-ratio.
I've switched to another WM and there is no problem there, so I'm betting it's my config:

 
[rules]
     # Example of rule for Mplayer
     [rule]
         instance = "xv"       # First part of WM_CLASS
         class    = "MPlayer"  # Seconf part of WM_CLASS, not needed if first part is correct
         # role = ""           # WM_WINDOW_ROLE
         screen   = 0          # Screen to use
         tag      = 2          # Tag number of apps
         free     = true       # Set automatic free client
         max      = false      # Set automatic maximized client
     [/rule]
   [tag]
          name             = "main"
          screen           = 0
          mwfact           = 0.65
          nmaster          = 1
          layout           = "tile_grid_vertical"
          resizehint       = false
          infobar_position = "top"
          #[mouse] [/mouse] Possible multi mouse section
    [/tag]

    [tag] name = "web"   [/tag]
    [tag] name = "chat" screen = 0 layout = "free" [/tag]

Did anyone have a similar issue before?
