Re: bspwm — A tiling window manager based on binary space partitioning

The new --one-shot rule syntax was a good idea! However, the existence of multiple rules that match all clients causes bspwm to crash upon the creation of a new window. E.g.:

 1 * --floating
 2 * --unmanage

If multiple one-shot rules that match all clients exist, will they all be applied to the next window?
I think there could be some interesting possibilities in terms of "queuing" rules.

Also, if a one-shot rule is added (with a keybinding, for example), is there any way to remove it without knowing the uid?
It would be easy enough to awk the rule list, but maybe a --rm last option would be beneficial. (I assumed the long option counterpart to -r would be --remove. Is there a reason that's not the case?)

Did you follow @aoba's advice to add:

sxhkd &
exec bspwm

to .xinitrc? It really shouldn't be that difficult to get everything working. Look at the examples provided with bspwm and read sxhkd's documentation.

bloom wrote:

Since every one-shot rule matching all clients will be removed when a new window is created, "queuing" rules isn't possible. It wouldn't be useful unless more window actions were supported, anyway.
Something similar to what I'm thinking of could probably be achieve using devilspie2.

bloom wrote:

Thanks!
bspc rule -l \* doesn't work (which is the default behavior anyway, but <pattern> should probably support * everywhere).

Could a --locked rule be added? Maybe it would be a good idea to support all --toggle window options as rules, in which case perhaps their declaration should reflect the window command, i.e. bspc rule -a * -t locked.

Also, I'm assuming bspwm has no concept of minimized windows since xdotool getactivewindow windowminimize does nothing. Would this be difficult to implement? The utility of minimizing windows with a tiling WM might be questionable, but unmapping and remapping windows erases their locked (which is related to the above request), presel, etc. state. Plus, if the window were originally tiled, maybe a vacant node could be used to return it to its original position upon maximizing.

Re: bspwm — A tiling window manager based on binary space partitioning

I have set up bspwm pretty much according to the example files in src/bspwm/examples/, and everything runs (nice WM btw). My only issue is: if I close bspwm, somehow the bar-aint-recursive process is not shut down correctly. The now orphaned (?) process is causing a CPU load of 100%. Restarting bspwm a new bar-instance is created which behaves fine, but the old one is still around causing said load. Any ideas how to check what's wrong?

The scripts are pretty much what was given in the examples, with the sole difference that I am using bar-aint-recursive-git, where the binary was changed to “bar-aint-recursive”. These are my configuration files:
$HOME/.xinitrc

Re: bspwm — A tiling window manager based on binary space partitioning

Commit afcbf47 causes problems with Skype. It seems like its chat windows are not updated unless the desktop containing said windows has focus. When I give that desktop focus, all unseen chat messages appear to "pop" into the window at the same time. The problem is that the chat windows are not requesting the urgent state to be set.

Re: bspwm — A tiling window manager based on binary space partitioning

I took the most recent example of panel_bar and panel and the output for bspwm's internal state doesn't show besides what tiling mode it is: http://i.imgur.com/aqgExgg.png

I see these:

WMHDMI-0:d1:d2:D3:E4:E5:E6:E7:E8:E9:E0:Ltiled
WMHDMI-0:d1:d2:D3:E4:E5:E6:E7:E8:E9:E0:Ltiled

in the PANEL_FIFO which doesn't seem to correspond with the case statements in panel_bar.

Switch to desktop # 1:

bspc desktop -f ^1

Switch to the desktop/tag named "web":

bspc desktop -f web

Bind "switch to desktop # 0-9" to a shortcut key combination in sxhkd:

 mod4 + {1-9,0}
     bspc desktop -f ^{1-9,0}

All of this is documented

Re: bspwm — A tiling window manager based on binary space partitioning

I'm having the same problem as Ploppz - I've added sxhkd & bspwm to my .xinitrc and all I get is a black screen. The only slightly unusual setup for me is a dual monitor using nVidia's proprietary drivers.

I'm using the bspwm package, not -git, if it matters.

I want to report another thing I noticed, which has to do with running two screens:
My Laptop is attached to an external monitor via a docking station. At start-up, the laptop's TFT shows a small portion (the top left part) of the external screen. Also, windows are not expanded to encompass the entire external screen, but only the part that fits the TFT is used. You can see this in the picture below:
5YxsiD6s.png

After turning the laptop's screen off with xrandr, the enumeration of the virtual desktops gets changed: look at the bar in the top left. “Desktop02” (I don't know, why it's called that) is now accessible via Super+1, while “I” is accessible via Super+2, etc. Before xrandr, Super+1 corresponded to “1”, as it should. This is what I see right after issuing the command.
WTnsLSrs.png

The now second virtual desktop called “I” now contains the terminal opened before:
j9fIpZ3s.png

Any ideas what's going on here?

Re: bspwm — A tiling window manager based on binary space partitioning

With sxhkd, is there a way to easily use one key to cycle through multiple actions? For example, if I wanted to bind key to toggle something.

I'm thinking something like this:

super + something
    { bspc desktop -f pad,
      bspc desktop -f last }

echo config | cat

@Stalafin, you have been around here since 2007 and should know by now that those pictures are far, far too large for these threads.  You need to post those on some kind of picture hosting site and then link to them from here.  You can also create thumbnails and do some fancy tag nesting to make a thumbnail link to your image.

Yes, they are.  In general, I don't care about the size in pixels;  I care about the size in Bytes.  Please fix those, or convert them from img to url.  Moderators often do that for newbies, but I think you can handle it tongue
