Another question...

If I'm reading this correctly: http://librelist.com/browser//bspwm/201 … 202104c9ea then apparently there is no way to restore your layout after say, a logout or reboot/shutdown? Does this mean that every time you shutdown/restart your machine you need to configure you windows all over again?

I'm not sure I fully understand what you mean there, when you reboot, all the configuration you saved in your bspwmrc are preserved. What do you mean by "configure you windows all over again?"

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

I think what kevinae91 is referring to is the ability to save application/window state when the machine is shut down.  I know OSX does this these days, and I think that a few of the bigger DE's do this as well (I remember seeing many an XFCE thread from users wishing to disable this).

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

Nevermind, I see now the question I was asking doesn't make too much sense. I just wanted my desktop and window positions to be in the same layout every time I started bspwm. But it's no biggie I guess.

I think I already know the answer to this, but I have to set all window/text colors, background, and fonts directly through the configuration files, right?

You could use xdotool:

xdotool search --classname <classname> set_desktop_for_window <n>

If you want to create something analogous to a "scratchpad," this is what I use:

xdotool search --onlyvisible --classname scratchpad windowunmap || xdotool search --classname scratchpad windowmap || st -c scratchpad -g 1000x400+460 &

bspwm only draws window borders. Their colors are set using bspc, a client to bspwm's socket interface. The configuration file is merely an executable script which calls bspc.

I don't think it's possible to restore window trees in the sense that you've mentioned.

---

In fact, while testing this, I saved the window tree, closed the open windows, reopened the same number of windows in a different layout, restored the saved window tree, and upon switching focus away from the desktop in which those windows are contained, I can no longer refocus it.


I use linux and I dont understand nothing in this post.

Thanks for that Supplantr, I perused that page so many times and didn't even think twice to look at the Global section. I think it's just that I was pre-occupied trying to figure out how to save the window tree.

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

I am trying to reload my bspwm after changing its configuration, but using the “loop” example it seems like I am still doing something wrong: first, all windows except that last focused one die, and even though I can switch the desktop (in as far as bar-aint-recursive now highlights a different number), all “desktops” now show the same active window.

Here is the configuration; first ~/.xinitrc:

#!/bin/zsh

if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then
  for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do
    [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f"
  done
  unset f
fi

/usr/bin/xscreensaver -no-splash &
/home/janis/.local/bin/lightsOn.sh &
/usr/bin/xset r rate 250 30 &

xset +fp /usr/share/fonts/local 
xset fp rehash 

#exec xmonad

sxhkd &
[ -e "$PANEL_FIFO" ] && rm "$PANEL_FIFO"
mkfifo "$PANEL_FIFO"
#exec bspwm -s "$PANEL_FIFO" -p W
exec wm

Next, ~/.local/bin/wm:

#! /bin/sh

while true ; do
  #bspwm || break
  bspwm -s "$PANEL_FIFO" -p W || break
done

Now ~/.config/bspwm/bspwmrc:

#! /bin/sh

if [ -e "$BSPWM_TREE" ] ; then
    bspc restore -T "$BSPWM_TREE"
    rm "$BSPWM_TREE"
else
    bspc control --adopt-orphans
fi

if [ -e "$BSPWM_HISTORY" ] ; then
    bspc restore -H "$BSPWM_HISTORY"
    rm "$BSPWM_HISTORY"
fi

bspc desktop ^1 -n I
bspc monitor -a II III IV V VI VII VIII IX X

bspc rule -a mplayer2 --floating
bspc rule -a Screenkey --unmanage

bspc config border_width        2
bspc config window_gap          12
bspc config split_ratio         0.52
bspc config borderless_monocle  true
bspc config gapless_monocle     true

panel &

And finally ~/.config/sxhkd/sxhkdrc:

#
# bspwm hotkeys
#

#super + alt + Escape
#super + shift + q
#    bspc quit
#
super + {_,shift + }q
    { pkill -x panel; \

          bspc query -H > "$BSPWM_HISTORY"; \

    bspc window -{f,s} {left,down,up,right}

#super + {_,shift + }c
#    bspc window -f {next,prev}

super + {comma,period}
    bspc desktop -C {backward,forward}

super + bracket{left,right}
    bspc desktop -f {prev,next}

super + ctrl + {h,j,k,l}
    bspc window -p {left,down,up,right}

super + ctrl + {_,shift + }space
    bspc {window -p cancel,desktop -c}

super + alt + {h,j,k,l}
    bspc window -e {left,down,up,right} push

super + alt + shift + {h,j,k,l}
    bspc window -e {right,up,down,left} pull

super + ctrl + {1-9}
    bspc window -r 0.{1-9}

super + {_,shift + }{1-9,0}
    bspc {desktop -f,window -d} ^{1-9,10}

~button1
    bspc pointer -g focus

super + button{1-3}
    bspc pointer -g {move,resize_side,resize_corner}

super + !button{1-3}
    bspc pointer -t %i %i

super + Return
    termite

#super + space
super + p
    dmenu_run

# make sxhkd reload its configuration files:
super + Escape
    pkill -USR1 -x sxhkd

To make it complete, here is the panel (just standard):

#! /bin/sh

trap 'trap - TERM; kill 0' INT TERM QUIT EXIT

flavor=${1:-bar}

bspc config top_padding $PANEL_HEIGHT
bspc control --put-status
xtitle -sf 'T%s' > "$PANEL_FIFO" &
clock -sf 'S%a %H:%M' > "$PANEL_FIFO" &

case "$flavor" in
    bar)
        cat "$PANEL_FIFO" | panel_bar | bar-aint-recursive &
        ;;
    dzen2)
        . panel_colors
        FONT_FAMILY='DejaVu Sans'
        FONT_SIZE=11
        cat "$PANEL_FIFO" | panel_dzen2 -f "$FONT_FAMILY" -s "$FONT_SIZE" | dzen2 -h $PANEL_HEIGHT -dock -ta l -title-name panel -fn "${FONT_FAMILY}:pixelsize=${FONT_SIZE}" -fg "$COLOR_FOREGROUND" -bg "$COLOR_BACKGROUND" &
        ;;
esac

wait

Using your arguments the problem persisted, might have been worse but I might have also been imagining things(haven't used arch since I posted about the problem).
I *am* using the AMD catalyst driver which I have read has worse 2D performance than the open-source one, but as I said previously I didn't have this issue before.

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

I seem to be too stupid.
I followed the dummies guide.
but each time i startup bspwm i get an error "could not execute configuration file"
when i execute it manually it works.

carnager@caprica ~ % ls -l .config/bspwm/
-rwxr-xr-x 1 carnager users 423 Oct  1 00:26 bspwmrc*

when i run it it will show my bar panel. but this brings me to my 2nd issue: there is no reserved space for the bar.

Did you set the a correct padding option in your config file? The padding syntax has changed recently and it should be similar to this now:

# PADDING
for p in "top 0" "right 0" "bottom 20" "left 0" ; do
    bspc config -m focused ${p% *}_padding ${p#* }
done

If compton is running alongside dunst and notifications are currently being displayed, switching to an empty desktop and creating a new window will cause this window (and any other windows immediately spawned on the desktop) to overlap dunst's notifications. The notifications remain below these windows until the current notifications are cleared and a new notification window is created.

Fixed.

Is there a way to make auto_alternate work globally?

It should now work as expected.

Try adding

backend = "xrender"

to your compton config

After adding that to ~/.config/compton.conf and running

compton -cCfFbG -I 0.05 -O 0.05 -D 4 -r4 -l-6 -t-5 -o.99

and

compton -cCfFbG -I 0.05 -O 0.05 -D 4 -r4 -l-6 -t-5 -o.99 --config ~/.config/compton.conf

the problem persists. The fact that the problem exists but not as bad when I don't have compton running makes me think that it may not be compton, but compton exacerbates the problem greatly.

Does it happen with every window of every client?

Have you tried with an empty .Xresources?

(And an empty bspwmrc?)

Could you check if ea49ed3 is related to the issue?

The window border width is now a desktop setting.

Anyone know of a way to move a window in FROM a desktop? I'd like to make a script that starts an application if it's not already running, then move it to/from a desktop with a single button--if at all possible.

You could use xdotool:

xdotool search --classname <classname> set_desktop_for_window <n>

If you want to create something analogous to a "scratchpad," this is what I use:

xdotool search --onlyvisible --classname scratchpad windowunmap || xdotool search --classname scratchpad windowmap || st -c scratchpad -g 1000x400+460 &

I think I already know the answer to this, but I have to set all window/text colors, background, and fonts directly through the configuration files, right?

bspwm only draws window borders. Their colors are set using bspc, a client to bspwm's socket interface. The configuration file is merely an executable script which calls bspc.

I don't think it's possible to restore window trees in the sense that you've mentioned.

In fact, while testing this, I saved the window tree, closed the open windows, reopened the same number of windows in a different layout, restored the saved window tree, and upon switching focus away from the desktop in which those windows are contained, I can no longer refocus it.

Thank you so much! Using this, I created the following script to get the desired outcome: https://gist.github.com/mpeebles/6780208
