Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Yesterday dwm-5.9 was released.

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.misc.suckless/6652

Is anyone using 5.9 yet? Also, i couldn't really find a changelog. Can someone tell what are the changes, and if it's worth upgrading. I am using 5.8.2.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

There have been incremental changes over the last several months: you can look back through the ML archive to see what has been added.

Anselm is planning a significant rewrite for the next release apparently. All of the patches that I was using on 5.8.2-2 worked without issue except the statuscolours patch from the ML, and that only required minor tweaking.

It's all good.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Two strategies:
1. https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Pa … g_upgraded
2. Add it to a group (I use modified) and add the modified group to IgnoreGroup

Yes, since I'm using some kind of dwm-hg.

I have no reason to upgrade to 5.9. 5.8.2 does everything I need, I have customized to exactly how I like it.

Maybe 6.0 will give me some challenges, which I shall accept with pleasure :-)

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Looking at the dwm changelog from 5.8.2 to 5.9, I find my fullscreen patch has been applied. Interesting.
Just to clarify, although I do occasionally use other nicks, I'm no Jack Dagger.
I guess I was too lazy/unsure that I didn't send the patch to the ML.

I've also updated my scratchpad patch for dwm 5.9, now indenting using TABs for consistency with the original code. Minor fixes included.
I'm not updating the github repo, just pasting it here for now:

scratchpad.patch for dwm 5.9
A scratchpad is a window that is assigned the (hidden) scratchtag.
A window becomes a scratchpad if its WM_NAME at its creation time is the value
of the scratchpadname variable.
togglescratchpad() is actually a variant of toggleview().

To use this, put the following definitions in config.h:

static const char scratchpadname[] = "Scratchpad"; /* make it unique, avoid name collision */
static const char *scratchpadcmd[] = { "uxterm", "-title", scratchpadname, "-geometry", "80x20", NULL }; /* WM_NAME must be scratchpadname */

static Key keys[] = {
    { MODKEY|ControlMask,           XK_x,      spawn,            {.v = scratchpadcmd } }, /* for more scratchpads */
    { MODKEY,                       XK_x,      togglescratchpad, {.v = scratchpadcmd } },
}

BUGS

* With more than one scratchpad, a second scratch does not restore the focus
  state of the last scratch, but will always focus the first scratchpad that is
  found while looping through selmon->clients.
* With more than one scratchpad, only the focused (floating) scratchpad will be
  raised to top of the stack. I think a better behavior would be to raise all
  (floating) scratchpads to top of the stack.

Hey guys,
Are pertag and uselessgap patches working on dwm 5.9?

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

feel free to use pertag2 and gaps from here. smile

lolilolicon, you should at least test it in floating layout.. with this focus should work ok now.

    if(ISVISIBLE(c)) {
        focus(c);
        restack(selmon);
    }

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Well, focus worked OK; I just didn't raise the the scratchpad wink
restack() should do, and I will test it later.
Thank you for your contribution.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Thanks Jokerboy. The mouse rox a lot!

I saw that section in your config.h

static const Tag tags[] = {
        /* name       layout           mfact    nmaster */
        { "main",     &layouts[4],     -1,      -1 },
        { "term",     &layouts[4],     -1,      -1 },
        { "web",      &layouts[2],     -1,      -1 },
        { "im",       &layouts[6],     0.17,    -1 },
        { "misc",     &layouts[4],     -1,      -1 },
};

It's a function to save layout per tag? What's the patch name please?

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Yeah.
It was a strange question, because on my pertag patch from suckless.org, it doesn't add these functions.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

it's a custom version of https://github.com/simongmzlj/dwmhacks/ … rtag2.diff which adds a nicer version of ntile and fixes a segfault when you restart dwm on-the-fly.

here's the config patch for pertag2.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Dude, your custom version doesn't work when i try to patch under ~/dwm/src/dwm-5.9 with:

patch -p1 < 01-dwm-5.9-pertag2.diff

But the pertag2 from simongmzlj, succeed.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

@Shrak, I updated the pango patch from AUR/pango for dwm 5.9 several days ago:
https://gist.github.com/1082030

It's only some offsetting stuff.
I didn't use it because it breaks my other patches... hmm
