Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hiya,

I've been using subtle for a few weeks and love it - it works for me.

Only problem I've come across is quite a biggie though, and the only reference to it I can find online is this thread: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=118556

Basically, whatever terminal program I use (by choice urxvt) Ctrl-C doesn't pass a SIGINT to any programs. This is definitely an issue with subtle - other window managers work fine using the same .Xmodmap. Has anyone else noticed this problem? I tried upgrading to subtle-hg today hoping it might fix the problem, but no luck.

thanks

Hi,

I wasn't aware of that thread and replied to it now. As you can read there, some users reported that problem back to me, but so far I wasn't sure able to reproduce it. I just happens with bash, but so I am really puzzled. I tried to debug that remotely with the reporter but with no luck.

Is there anything you'd like me to try or any output you'd like me to post? I'd be keen to help you fix this, but I'm at a bit of a loss.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hi, how do you manage the automounting any removable devices while using subtle. I'm currently trying that WM. And i'm planing not to use any file manager, just mc. But i don't really want to mount my usb devices manually. Is there any solution for that?

Almost forgot: how do you manage to set the volume in subtle? The workaround with loading the OSS module doesn't work for me and my alsa setup. thanks!

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Generally, when you use a Windowmanager instead of a Desktop environment, you'll use various programs that are not connected to the wm.
For example you'll look for other ways, like this maybe. (I don't use automounting, so can't give you specific tips).
I'm sure there are some graphical alsa soundmixer that sit in the systray, just use one of those (subtle has built-in systray). There are also subtlets for volume, but i don't use those since i use ossxmix (obviously i use oss for my sound).

Just look for alternatives, there's tons of things for most uses.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

@irrlicht - For automounting, the link given by Ogion provides some option. I personally use devmon and like it very much. For managing sound volume, you can try setting keybinds for alsamixer in Subtle, or use a program like volumeicon which sits in the tray.

Thank you guys. I'll try those advises for mounting devices.

Can you give me an advise how to this exactly in subtle, so i can use the [fn] keys for it. Thanks.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

# Adjust volume setting
grab "W-comma", "ossvol -d 2.5"
grab "W-period", "ossvol -i 2.5"

This is what i have for volume control. Obviously you'll have to change the ossvol command to an alsamixer command, and change the keys as you like. (I suppose the F keys are simply F1-12, but i never sued them in a grab because my  F-keys of my netbook don't work right, phsically)

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Thank you Ogion! Now it works.

For those who may search for the same solution:
This works for me, since my FN keys works.

grab "XF86AudioRaiseVolume", "amixer -c 1 -q set PCM 3%+"
grab "XF86AudioLoverVolume", "amixer -c 1 -q set PCM 3%-"

The "-c" option tells which sound card(counts from 0) setting should be altered.


Hm. i run into the next issue. If i install any sublet like this: sur install <sublet>, after sublets are not being added onto the bar under any circumstances even if i add it to
top [] array. But also there are no errors.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

screen 1 do
  top    [ :views, :title, :spacer, :keychain, :spacer, :tray, :sublets ]
  bottom [ ]
end

This is what i have there, the :sublet should be a catch-all that just takes every sublet that's installed. You have reloaded after installing sublets, right? (subtler -r)

My screen 1 array looks exactly like yours, and yes invoked subtler -r - no effect.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Then i suspect it's something to do with the actual subtlet. Tell us (and maybe ask in #subtle on freenoce, if you're comfortable with irc) which one you had the problem with.

Sorry for the late reply, was a bit busy between xmas and New Year's Eve. I really have no idea how to debug that and it is really bogus because it just happens with bash. Can you tell me a list of steps how to reproduce it? Including all the things that are running in Xorg?

Is your issue fixed already? Did you check the tty subtle is running on? It usually posts errors there and what are the name of the sublets you want to install but refuse to appear in the panel?

no, it's not fixed yed. the are no errors at all.I cant add any of available sublets, however i can install any of them, but they are just not on pannel. sur is reporting that local chache contains 6 entries, but only 5 standard subtles are being on the bar. is it possible that i just missing some gems?

Quite possible but I can just guess without the names of the sublets. When you install all arbi_ sublets all won't work without arbi. So can you post the output of subtler -sl?

Sorry, it is subtler -sl. When you load that sublet there is an error for sure, check the faq: http://subforge.org/ezfaq/show/subtle?faq_id=27

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

hm, i was trying to use only the volume sublet. after i failed to spell it's name correctly to loading the kernel module, i tryed to install moc_info and some arbi* modules, that didn't worked also, so my guess was were is somthing wrong wich subtle(now i think it was just dependencie issue) i removed all those sublets and was trying to resolv the issue with volume sublet.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Have been messing around with a few tiling Wm's lately, but i'm allways coming back to subtle. So keep up the good work.

But i got a question about the behavior of the borders defined by active and inactive. For me it seems like instead of showing the inactive border, the space where the border is suppossed to be is getting transperent. And here's the strange part. It's not in all views this happens. It seems like it's when i'm using terminals (urxvt).

When looking at screenshots it seems like some got the same problem, but it can be tricky to know what their config says when it's not availble. For me i got no margin or padding that should mess things up.

Any solutions or do i just have to live with it?


I know I'm paranoid, but am I paranoid enought....
