Very happy with wmfs so far.

I have a rule for chromium to be opened in a MAX tag. If i watch an html5 youtube video and i make it full screen, the video pops in a different window behind the chromium window. Is this normal?

It is not normal, it is a known bug. I believe the devs are working on it. I know once it's fixed, wmfs will likely be my sole wm smile

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

When i open a window (i.e. Thunar) in a free tag. Then i toggle the client max. Then i close the client. The i open it again in the same tag, it overlaps the status bar.

Is this a known bug or did i configure something wrong?

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

I recently switched to WMFS and am just wondering if it's possible to get a transparent infobar? I don't think so, but figured a check wouldn't hurt.
Also, what about a second infobar?

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

got it ...i'd looked to my previous awesome and found this:

#! /bin/bash

if [ -z "`ps -Af | grep -o -w ".*$1" | grep -v grep | grep -v run-once`" ]; then
  $@
  fi

Save it as "run_once" somewhere in your $PATH and make it executable. Then autostart your apps like this: start from within the " autostart.sh "

run_once " you're..program..here "

i have a dir linked to my "/usr/bin" called "exec" and start my commands from there ,so my command from the autostart.sh goes like this:

#!/bin/bash
exec/run_once feh --bg-scale ~/arch-linux.jpg
exec/run_once vattery

execute()
{
local cmd="$1"
$cmd &
sleep 0.1
}
execute "terminator"

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Updated to the latest git version, wmfs can't load custom font anymore. I also have a freetype upgrade, So I don't know if the problem come from wmfs or freetype. But wmfs is the only app with font problem.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Nice surprise today:

wmfs: /home/gsacre/.config/wmfs/wmfsrc:15, unused param status_path
wmfs: /home/gsacre/.config/wmfs/wmfsrc:14, unused param status_timing

I checked their repository and saw this:

http://wmfs.info/projects/wmfs/reposito … /status.sh

So they removed the line in wmfsrc that gives the status.sh and it should "magically" pickup the status.sh script in your .config/wmfs.

Anyone got this working?

Is it the right right to do this ? It create a lot of autostart.sh process and eat up a lot of cpu.

Just put the loop in your status.sh and call it once? Or change the sleep time?

I don't know if this was your question at all, but here I go:
Use the modifier key (default is Alt) and press the left mouse to move windows.
Use the modifier key (default is Alt) and press the right mouse to resize windows.

This is half true. Don't have the status.sh script call itself every second this will only create a lot of status.sh processes and may eventually crash when the system is out of resources or something.

You only have to put your usual status update script inside the while loop like so:

#!/bin/bash

while true; do
    somevar="xyz"
    othervar="..."

    wmfs -s "this will be on the status bar"
    
    sleep 1 # or some other value depending on how often want to refresh
done

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

So I may have found a workaround for the focus issue. 

I was playing around, and decided to try setting tag to a negative value with follow_client set to true:

[rule]
      instance        = "terminal"
      screen          = 0
      tag             = -1
      follow_client   = true
[/rule]

I only tested a bit on max and free, since I never use them, but my issue was very similar and it's totally sorted with that.
Now I ask... is there a way to set some global client rules, or do I have to make a rule for every program I might run?

Edit:

[rule] instance="*" screen=0 tag=-1 follow_client=true [/rule]

worked perfectly.  (and my other rules held, as well, as far as I could test)

Edit2:
Nope!!  didn't work... instance = "*" doesn't do anything.  I tricked myself into thinking it worked (it was late last night).
Any ideas?

Edit 3:
It must have been real late last night, because now nothing seems to work. 
I guess Ill just wait for this functionality in a later release.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

I am trying to use the example status.sh to set the date in my statusbar. I just wont show.
I set this in my [misc] section:

status_path = "~/.config/wmfs/status.sh"
status_timing = 5

Here is the example status.sh:

#!/bin/sh
#WMFS status.sh example file
#Will be executed if put in ~/.config/wmfs/
#Timing adjustable in wmfsrc (misc -> status_timing)

statustext()
{
     wmfs -s "`date`"
}

while true; do statustext; sleep 10; done

i have set it to be executable, but still no luck. Command works if i run it in terminal.
Where is the mistake?

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

WMFS has removed status_path and status_timing for the time being, you'll need to manually run the status script.

background_command ="$HOME/Scripts/status.sh" or wherever you have the status.sh
