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

I'm running version 0.8.8, but the rules in bspwmrc are ignored. bspwmrc is executable.
bspc rule --list doesn't return anything.

#! /bin/sh

bspc config wm_name LG3D
bspc monitor -d 1 2 3 4 5 6
bspc config bottom_padding      20
bspc config border_width        2
bspc config window_gap          6
bspc config split_ratio         0.52
bspc config borderless_monocle  true
bspc config gapless_monocle     true
bspc config focus_follows_pointer true
bspc control --subscribe > /tmp/bspwm-bar
bspc rule -a mutt desktop=^2
bspc rule -a Chromium desktop=^1
bspc rule -a ranger desktop=^3
bspc rule -a scratchpad floating=on
bspc rule -a pygtk-shutdown-systemd floating=on

Cheers

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

Try deleting

bspc config wm_name LG3D

wm_name is not a valid option (not in the man page).

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

I'm writing a script for conky to output the desktop names, along with highlighting if the desktops are focused, and is empty or has windows in it. Is there an easy way to determine if a given desktop has any windows in it?

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

Running sxhkd from a terminal, I get output "Invalid syntax." a zillion times (continously) every time I use the mouse to either resize or move windows. Here is the part of sxhkdrc that I think is relevant:

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

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

super + @button{1-3}
    bspc pointer -u

Here is my full .sxhkdrc just in case http://sprunge.us/SdOa

bspc query -W -d $DESKTOP | wc -l

will return the number of windows on $DESKTOP.


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

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

Is there a way to set floating windows to always spawn centered around the cursor? I've looked through the documentation, and I can't seem to find a straightforward way.

Any help would be appreciated! smile

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

I'm currently using doing a java assignment using Eclipse.  When I try to run it, the java applet that pops up which suppoesd to have buttons is an all blank screen. 
Could this be a bspwm issue?  I tested the exact same project on Linux Mint and it was fine.  Is there a way to work around this?

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

Hey Bastien, I 've just started trying out your WM and I am loving it so far! The essence of minimalism!

I was wondering if there is a way so that I can switch between desktops while scrolling the mouse on the root window? If not, is it possible to make a request for this? I guess it would be something for sxhkd to manage since the mouse scroll would just trigger a bspwm command. Or is it already possible? :shameonme:

You want the binding to be effective only when the mouse pointer is on the root window?

Yes, because I use my mouse in other programs so I wouldn't want it to trigger if the mouse is above a window. Only above the root window (the desktop).

As of 23dc78d(@sxhkd), you can do the following:

/button{4,5}
	bspc desktop -f {next,prev}

The button numbers might differ (xev will give you the correct ones).

Wow, amazing how fast you worked on this! I really appreciate it!
Do you accept donations? I couldn't find any info on it.

But unfortunately it didn't work here. I cant trigger any action on the root window with my mouse.
And the buttons that is set with the "/button" doesn't work at all over normal windows either.
I'm not sure how to debug it either.

It works for me on the root window, but can't scroll over a normal window.

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

I disabled all of my startup programs to make sure none of them interfered with sxhkd or the root window but still no success. I tried using super + /button aswell but no luck.

Use button without the leading slash for this combination.

Edit: To change desktops by scrolling above the desktop with /button… doesn't seem to work here, too, although super + button… works fine, so at least, I know I got the right buttons.

My bad, hopefully it should be sorted out by 07655df and by replacing / with ~/.

What's the output of xev | grep -Eio 'button [0-9]+' | sort -u when you press your mouse wheel up and down and then hit ^c?

You can build a debug binary with make debug.

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

Hm… Just recompiled, but:

Still works:

super + button{4,5}
   bspc desktop -f {prev,next}

Still doesn't work:

~/button{4,5}
   bspc desktop -f {prev,next}

Where do I go wrong?

I get no output.

I can conform as @cju said, super + button works but that would've worked in the previous builds anyways.
However none of the ~/button or /button works, but now at least the assigned buttons with ~/button work as they should over regular windows.

P.S. The flattr link in the first post doesn't work, it just links to the flattr homepage
