Padding is not taken into consideration when centering a floating window which might explain the discrepancy.

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

The following desktop selector: focused:MONITOR_SEL is now written: MONITOR_SEL:focused.

In addition, MONITOR_SEL:^<n> selects the nth desktop in the output of bspc query -D -m MONITOR_SEL.

Hm. Sounds logical, but: I don't use any padding at all. Does that mean that centering of floats works correctly on your machine?

It should be fixed.

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

The border width of a single window can now be changed via bspc config -w WINDOW_SEL border_width VALUE.

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

I'm trying to adapt lightdm bspwm-session to work with loop examples.
I have replaced bspwm with wm, but super + alt + {_,shift + }Escape logs me out (I guess expected behaviour
is to only reload changes while retaining open widows and layout?)
Super + alt + Escape reloads bspwm, but previously open windows become unmanaged.
They can't be closed and focus can't be changed.

Is this maybe limitation of display manager or scripts need some work?

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

Couple of things -

First, really enjoying bspwm. Came to it from i3, and it's a good thing.
Second, is there a way to uncouple workspaces from desktops? Say I have two monitors, and I have workspace 1 on the first monitor, switch to workspace 2 on it, then want workspace 1 on my other monitor. Any way to make that work?

Thanks for any help!

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

Opening a window in floating mode doesn't work for me. In my sxhkdrc, there's

super + shift + t
    bspc rule -a termite -o floating=on; \
    termite -x 0.7

Updated system yesterday, haven't ever been able to make it work. Also earlier when it was "bspc rule -a termite --floating --one-shot" it did not work either.

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

I got these errors the first time I ran xcompmgr (today)  (use it for semi-transparency):

error 9: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter) request 143 minor 1 serial 126267
error 3: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) request 129 minor 6 serial 126268
error 3: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) request 20 minor 0 serial 126269
error 3: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) request 15 minor 0 serial 126270
error 3: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) request 2 minor 0 serial 126271
error 3: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) request 20 minor 0 serial 126272
error 3: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) request 2 minor 0 serial 126273
error 3: BadWindow (invalid Window parameter) request 20 minor 0 serial 126274

Although I didn't get them any more.. well
Generally, the new (termite) windows I make, only have the desired transparecy the moment I make them, and until I move them to other tiles or anything else happens to them - it acts quite weird.

termite version 7 does (it set's the transparency).

That works fine, but if I type bspc config -d DESKTOP_SEL border_width VALUE, the border witdh of the selected desktop doesn't change for all existing windows; only newly created windows on the selected desktop get the new border width. Is this intended?

I did just now and strangely - regardless of what I set 'transparency' to in termite config, the windows are always completely transparent (only the background of course), I also removed '-x 0.7' in the sxhkdrc. Shadowing seems to work though but I'm more interested in the transparency.

Yes: the above command sets the default value for the border width of the windows of the given desktop.

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

bspc rule -a termite -o floating=on

really does not work, I tried to just run it as a command and open termite afterwards, also tried with other programs. I need this to work. Any suggestions?

There is not output, and opening termite afterwards, it's not floating.

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

trying it out as my first tiling wm. going really well. Thank you.
One quick question, is there a way to get just the window class/application name instead of the whole window title? i.e. just 'Firefox' or 'Thunar' instead of the whole page or folder title.
Thanks.

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

Can I switch desktops not only based on the key I press but the monitor I am currently selecting a window on and the key I press?

eg:

Monitor 1: Desktop I and II
Monitor 2: Desktop A and B

if I press super + {1,2} I want to go to the first or second Desktop of the monitor I am currently working on (meaning the monitor I am currently selecting a window on). If I'm currently on Monitor 1 I wanna switch between I and II and if im currently on Monitor 2 I wanna switch between A and B with the same keys (super + {1,2}).
