Did you set the $BSPWM_STATUS_FIFO variable so that it points to some file? Like /tmp/bspwm-fifo for example.

How would you suggest I go about doing so?

**EDIT** I got it working, though I'd still appreciate an answer on how you set yours? smile

I put my fifo file in /tmp and I set almost all the variables in ~/.bash_profile. I'm planning to move theme to ~/.profile but it's basically the same. Just keep in mind that if you use the latter you should source it in the first, if present, because it has higher priority at boot time. wink

Yeah, I was tryna decide what the cleanest way of doing it would be, I use zsh, so it would've been in my zprofile tongue But I ended up going with /etc/environment smile Thanks for the reply

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

I was unable to get a "click to focus" behavior working properly. I added:

button1
    bspc grab_pointer focus
@button1
    bspc ungrab_pointer

to sxhkdrc, and this allowed a click to focus the window under the pointer, but it also prevented clicks from being sent through to the application itself.

Is there any way to make a click focus a window but also be sent to the application, e.g. like i3, or xmonad with clickJustFocuses = False?

Also, if bloom sees this, in the documentation for focus_follows_pointer whether is misspelled. wink

Unfortunately, sxhkd can't emulate click to focus properly: I'll have to implement this in bspwm.

I'm experiencing strange behavior. Clicking only sometimes switches focus to the window that was clicked, and clicks aren't always sent to the application.

  1. Launch libreoffice and an instance of urxvtc (which now has focus).

  2. Clicking on the libreoffice window switches focus to it, but does not pass the click to the application, meaning a second click is required to interact with it.

  3. Switch to urxvtc (which is to the left) with the keyboard. This wasn't possible in my case until I pressed super + l (focus right) and then focus left.

  4. Click "Text Document" on libreoffice's dialog; the click is passed through and a new document opens.

  5. Use bspc close and the urxvtc instance is closed!

Also, switching workspaces during this process will change the outcome.

What version of libreoffice?
I can't seem to get the current version to start here, it always fails with:

terminate called after throwing an instance of 'com::sun::star::uno::RuntimeException'

This is expected: not sure if I can work around that limitation.

This is strange indeed, and I'll try to reproduce this as soon as I get libreoffice working.

I'm using 4.0.1-2 and experiencing no problems.

Similar behavior can be replicated using gimp. It's possible to click on a "dockable dialog," such as Tools, and select a tool without focusing the gimp window.

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

@Supplantr:
After all, I did manage to implement it via sxhkd, so please checkout the master branch of bspwm, the replay-event branch of sxhkd and use the following in your sxhkdrc:

:button1
    bspc grab_pointer focus

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

@bloom,

Wow, thanks! It seems to be working perfectly. I tested all the previously problematic cases and everything works as expected. I'll be sure to report anything out of the ordinary if it arises.

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

Although it's not strictly related to an issue with bspwm, I'm hoping someone can help me out with Lemonboy's bar. After compiling it and trying to run it, no matter what font I define in config.h it complains it couldn't load the font. I've ensured I have included the 'FontPath' setion in my xorg.conf, and that I can use 'xlsfonts | grep -i <font-name>*' to find the font. Does anybody have any pointers?

I'm using tmux to display useful information right now, but I'd much rather implement a bar to fit nicely with bspwm. I'm not using it full time on both my desktop and my little MacBook Air, absolutely loving it smile

What's your BAR_FONT definition?

My guess is that you specified only one font. BAR_FONT must have the following form:

#define BAR_FONT  "font1", "font2"

Where font1 is the main font and font2 the fallback font.

In my case I had two fonts defined.

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

Would it be possible to implement support for _NET_WM_STATE_DEMANDS_ATTENTION? This is used by "almost all" Qt applications (notably Skype) instead of the urgency flag of WM_HINTS.

Thanks again, it works as expected.

Another feature request, if it's doable and in line with your aesthetic vision: overlapping window borders, like in monsterwm.

There's already:

bspc set window_gap -$(bspc get border_width)

It might not be exactly what you're after though.
