Re: Share your Awesome(WM) desktop!

Hi guys, i have a problem with chromium and flash, when i put a video in fullscreen mode, it doesn't maximise but follow layout rules evenif i force it to the free/max layout, i had a similar problem with firefox and i solved putting this in rules section of rc.lua:

     { rule = { instance = "plugin-container" },
      properties = { floating = true } },

Is there a similar solution for chromium?

You can do the following to find the class or name of the flash window:

Open a terminal, type

 $ sleep 5 && xprop 

Then you have 5 seconds to open a flash video and put it in fullscreen. Your mouse cursor will change to a cross of some sort, and you just have to click on the flash window. Check the resulting terminal output.

EDIT: Forgot to include my desktop, so here it is;

Re: Share your Awesome(WM) desktop!

Color theme stolen from sicpsnake. Everything good about the awesome config is taken from intrntburn's helpful github. Wallpaper is from the new Elementary Luna wallpaper pack.

{ rule = { instance = "exe" },
      properties = { floating = true } },

Just like Gonk said xprop is the way to go.

i couldn't get rules to play nice with fs flash through chromium myself.
but the solution i use is an extension called MaximizeFlash https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta … bplkbhngnl, then meta+f or whatever your awesome fullscreen key is.

I tried this but it doesn't work...it seems that the only way for chromium to play a fullscreen flash video is putting it in a tag with free layout, otherwise assigning to cromium the floating rule...

i'm gonna try the extension suggested by indisposed

Re: Share your Awesome(WM) desktop!

This is what I'm currently using - very very minimal. No distractions, meters, widgets, blinky stuff or bright colors, just how I like it. It's pretty much Simple Desktops' Isometric wallpaper (here) with not much else.

I'll add a dirty shot when I can get compositing/transparency to work smile

Maybe you should add a bit more contrast between text and the wibox, I can barely see the text O_O

On my screen I can see he fonts without any problem, perhaps a little more contrast could work. Thx for the advice

Re: Share your Awesome(WM) desktop!

I mostly sticked to the default options, since they aleady fit most of my needs.

Tiling:
* Use "tile" by default.

Tags:
* Use "only" 7 tags, with names for different activities.

Systray:
* Use vicious to handle CPU, Network, Audio, Battery.
* Use a condition on battery detection to display it on laptop only -- if /sys/class/powersupply is not empty.
* Use a condition on battery state to change from blue to red on low power.
* Use a condition on PCM audio detection: if you keep polling for PCM volume but no PCM channel is detected, you'll get an inifinite error promp on your TTY...

Theme:
* I changed the default one to have (a bit) larger window borders. Useful to have visible borders between several terminals.

Keys:
* Some shortcut to exec my favorite apps (mail, web, music, file browser, screenshot).
* Shortcut to lock the screen (I also lock the current tty, otherwise it's useless).
* Audio shortcuts (lower, raise, mute toggle) assigned to both XF86Audio* and KP_{Add,Subtract,Enter}, so that it works on laptop w/o keypads, and classic keyboards w/o media keys.
* Music player shortcuts : play/pause, next, previous.

My config: https://github.com/Ambrevar/home-config


The only thing I did not manage to get working yet is to bind a key to spawn something on a specific tag.
Anyone has a clue?

https://github.com/tlamer/.dotfiles/blo … _rules.lua in lines for chromium you can see how to spawn app on specific tag. in this particular cese chromium is always on second tag.

Re: Share your Awesome(WM) desktop!

awful.key({ "Control" }, "y", function () awful.tag.viewonly(tags[mouse.screen][1]) awful.util.spawn(terminal) end),

Re: Share your Awesome(WM) desktop!

he defined this in his theme.lua

theme.layout_tile       = "<span color='" .. theme.fg_cyan.. "'>[tile]</span>"
theme.layout_tileleft   = "<span color='" .. theme.fg_cyan.. "'>[left]</span>"
theme.layout_tilebottom = "<span color='" .. theme.fg_cyan.. "'>[bottom]</span>"
theme.layout_fairh      = "<span color='"..theme.fg_cyan.."'>[fair]</span>"
theme.layout_spiral     = "<span color='"..theme.fg_cyan.."'>[spiral]</span>"
theme.layout_dwindle    = "<span color='"..theme.fg_cyan.."'>[dwindle]</span>"
theme.layout_max        = "<span color='"..theme.fg_cyan.."'>[max]</span>"
theme.layout_magnifier  = "<span color='"..theme.fg_cyan.."'>[magnifier]</span>"
theme.layout_floating   = "<span color='"..theme.fg_cyan.."'>[float]</span>" 

(doesnt worked for me)
//

tried to change layoutbox.lua
added:
local textbox = require("wibox.widget.textbox")

changed this function to:
local function update(w, screen)
    local layout = layout.getname(layout.get(screen))
    w:set_text(layout)
end

and changed in new():
local w = textbox()

but this didnt worked too. no idea why this is not working

@intrntbrn: infinality patch set
@TheImmortalPhoenix: I just edited the layoutbox.lua file and replaced the imagebox with a textbox. You can patch it with this http://pastebin.com/xMd4swpd while the changes in my theme.lua have already been pointed out by intrntbrn
