Re: xmonad Hacking Thread

You can't have it in defaultConfig, you have to put it outside anything, i.e. between the imports and main = do.

Notice that you've bound M-e and M-S-e to switching between screens after the empty workspace stuff. M.fromList takes the last elements, so to fix this you should probably remove the xK_e from that list comprehension.

Re: xmonad Hacking Thread

@unregistered, Or you can write the suggestions Nepherte gave you inline.

Also notice that due to operator precedence being lower than function application, you need () around your fractions.

import XMonad
import XMonad.Hooks.DynamicLog
import XMonad.Hooks.ManageDocks
import XMonad.Util.Run(spawnPipe)
import XMonad.Util.EZConfig(additionalKeys)
import System.IO

main = do
    xmproc <- spawnPipe "xmobar"
    xmonad $ defaultConfig
        { manageHook = manageDocks <+> manageHook defaultConfig
        , layoutHook = let tiled = Tall 1 (1/2) (3/100) in avoidStruts $ Full ||| Mirror tiled ||| tiled
        , logHook = dynamicLogWithPP $ xmobarPP
                        { ppOutput = hPutStrLn xmproc
                        , ppTitle = xmobarColor "green" "" . shorten 50
                        }

Re: xmonad Hacking Thread

The only difference is where the names are in scope. In the example I gave, the 'tiled' is only in scope where it is used. If you put it at top level, you could refer to 'tiled' anywhere in the module. In this case, it makes no difference, since there should be no reason to refer to it elsewhere.

in your main, you should then assign the layoutHook to myLayout:

layoutHook = myLayout

You can toggle between layouts with mod + spacebar if you didn't change the default key for it.

hey I got a tiled and myLayout not in scope error when trying to compile, any ideas?

here's the config

        , focusedBorderColor = "#00ff00"
        --, modMask = mod4Mask     -- Rebind Mod to the Windows key

It should be:

Re: xmonad Hacking Thread

@Nepherte
you forgot the parentheses around the fractions but otherwise it worked fine smile

how can I edit the key for launching dmenu to this:

MODKEY, XK_p, spawn, "exe=`dmenu_path | dmenu -fn '"FONT"' -nb '"NORMBGCOLOR"' -nf '"NORMFGCOLOR"'" " -sb '"SELBGCOLOR"' -sf '"SELFGCOLOR"'` && eval \"exec $exe\""

PS I just want to change the color of dmenu but preserve the alt-P default binding

            , ((modm .|. controlMask, xK_Down ), sendMessage $ Swap D)
            ]

The lxpanel can work with xmonad happily.  And there is another question:  In firefox, open the "Organize Bookmark window" -> Restore bookmark from a file, then the confire dialog will be hidden by the "Organize Bookmark window" ,  I have to use mouse to move the "Organize Bookmark window" to discover the "confirm dialog".

One more question associated with wine:
When running windows application using wine, the app. will lose keyborad focus until i click the app. using mouse.

Re: xmonad Hacking Thread

@unregistered: Just change the options you give dmenu in the xmonad.hs file. Check man dmenu for the different options.

Here is my line:

, ((modMask,     xK_p ), spawn "exe=`dmenu_path | dmenu -fn -*-terminus-*-*-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-u -nb black -nf gray` && eval \"exec $exe\"")

(To find a font you can use xfontsel.)

The keybindings are stored in a map (the same interface as a hash table, or dictionary in other languages). When converting from the list that you specify the keybindings in, duplicated elements (xK_e in your case), the last binding is taken. In your case xK_e with your modkey, and possibly shift end up being bound to switching screens. The solution is to remove the second occurence of xK_e, from your config.

I think that using XMonad.Util.EZConfig would be better choice for you, since it overrides the existing keybindings. It also has some functions to run on xmonad's startup (or restart) that will tell you if you have bound the same key combination twice.

Re: xmonad Hacking Thread

I posted a new thread on the Desktop Environment section, but I figure it won't hurt to ask here either.  Does anyone know how to change the behaviour of floating windows, so that they aren't always above other windows?  I'm trying to migrate from Awesome and found that behaviour very useful (but, alas, the configuration syntax changes too fast for me to keep up, and there are one or two other issues), since I usually run Skype floating, but on my main screen, so I can chat while I work/read responses through the transparent terminals I use.  If I have to edit the Xmonad source, I'd be willing to do that too, I'd just need someone to point out what I need to change, and in what file (haven't even really begun learning Haskell yet, too busy). If anyone has an idea of whom I best direct this question to instead (or someone who is sure to know the answer), that would be great too.

Nice configs here as well.

Re: xmonad Hacking Thread

Have you tried the IM-Layout?

http://xmonad.org/xmonad-docs/xmonad-co … ut-IM.html

Keeping the floated windows *below* the tiled doesn't make much sense imo, since you'd have to close all windows again to see any of the floated (yeh, ok, you're using transparency -- but still tongue ). Use multiple workspaces instead - that what they're good for! smile

Re: xmonad Hacking Thread

No, I don't want it to be just below, I want it to just not always be on top...like be able to have it below or above.  However, it is a step closer to know that the opposite is true, so a balance should be possible, right?

Thanks for the suggestion though.

Well, as far as I understand it, the XMonad.Layout.Combo hook allows you to combine different layouts.  I am just spit-balling here though, as I don't know if you could achieve what you want with different layouts combined.

Thanks for the link, and spit-balling is still more than I have going atm tongue  I'll give it a shot and let you know how it goes.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Maybe I'm just extremely slow when on summer holidays, or else I am just incapable of understanding the website tongue  I'm not sure on how exactly I am meant to use the CombineTwo thing in the xmonad.hs file.  Is it like CombineTwo <first layout> <second layout>?

Re: xmonad Hacking Thread

Well, just as an update on the combo layout suggestion: XMonad doesn't recognize XMonad.Layout.Combo as a proper module, so I can't get any further, and I'm not really looking to create a new layout where things are floated all the time, just that if I choose to float a window to have it go both above and below a window.  I'll probably see if DWM or another tiling manager offers that, otherwise I'll probably end up with Awesome again.  Thanks for the suggestions though, I'm sure that, given enough time, we could figure something out tongue  I'm in the middle of a move right now, so I don't have that kind of time though tongue

Thanks again,
Lswest

Re: xmonad Hacking Thread

Hello smile

I'd just like to share my XMonad and dzen config:

my stats bar (toggled on/off by Mod-s)

You can see the config files here (XMonad) and here (dzen).
