Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Hi all!

Because my tft ist quite small, I also use my xmobar (lowerOnStart = False) which I start from rootrc, to get two bars at the top and the bottom position or one "double line" bar eg at the top.

But either it covers clients (eg when bar is top, xmobar bottom; bar is top, xmobar top and positioned beneath the wmfs-bar) or it covers (partly) the wmfs-bar, when both bars are at the same position. For now I got a improvisation, that I set the height of the wmfs-bar quite high (eg height = "40") and xmobar at y=0. In that way xmobar doesn't cover the whole wmfs-bar, but because bar's entries are shown centerted, the space of the bottom part of the wmfs-bar is wasted...

So here my questions: are there ways to explicitely set

(1) the wmfs-bar at a certain y-position (like xmobar)?
(2) the area, where the clients show up (like in xmonad)?
Edit:
(3) -- and/or (alternatively) set the position of the entries in the bar (eg textual entries for tags at top|bottom|centered|left|right)?

...if not, these points are feature requests wink

thx

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

After a long use of WMFS, figured out that it's not the best for a 1024x600 screen resolution. Any kind of tiling, is just too small for the screen. What do you think? Anyone using a netbook as well?

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

I'm not using netbook, but I've got 12.2" laptop (almost netbook...) resolution is almost the same as yours.. and figured out that tiling WM's are much better then others... why? cos I don't care about moving windows around, I just focuse on application... and I have almost all the time only one app per virtual screen... so.. that's it

I don't use wmfs but I do use dwm on a netbook. It's almost always in monocle mode.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

I use wmfs on both a netbook with a 11.6" screen and a desktop computer with a 1920×1200 27" screen, and I am very happy with the two configs. But I don't use the netbook for work, only for multimedia/Internet.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Hello,

Basically, I have two issues with WMFS I'd like to see resolved:

1. When I open the launcher and start typing, it is sort of flashing on every key input if gets. Is this a bug?
2. WMFS doesn't play nice with Libreoffice. I added a rule with correct values as per xprop to open it on tag 4. It does open there, but when I hover it with my mouse or click a button, I get send back to tag 2 (which is my default tag) Some pages ago I saw this was a bug, but the link to the bugreport doesn't work anymore.

Can you help me find the answers to these questions and perhaps get them resolved?

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

That is just where I put mine; you are free to stash them anywhere, just include the full path in your conf file...


# edit: or, if you are asking where do you get the icons: I drew mine - but there are plenty floating around. The dzen wiki has some nice ones.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Dear list,

After trying several tiling windowmanagers I have decided WMFS suites me best. I like the configurability and the antialiased fonts (I just do...). There is however one issue that's interfering with my love for WMFS. I have a rule for (amongst others) mplayer that lets it start as a floating window. When I start an instance of mplayer from a window that is not the master window, the master window gets focus after closing mplayer instead of the window that I launched mplayer from. Like so:


When starting mplayer:

+-----------------------------+
|  Master     |               |
|             |               |
|             +---------------+
|             |  start        |
|             |  mplayer      |
+-----------------------------+
                       ^
                  Has focus

When running mplayer:

+-----------------------------+
|  Master     |               |
|     +-------------+         |
|     |  mplayer    |---------+
|     | (has focus) |         |
|     +-------------+         |
+-----------------------------+

And then, after closing mplayer:

+-----------------------------+
|  Master     |               |
|             |               |
|             +---------------+
|             |  started      |
|             |  mplayer      |
+-----------------------------+
      ^
  Has focus

Now I have to get back to the window that started mplayer to continue. I've played with focus configuration of WMFS, but have not been able to solve it. Or is this some kind of feature that I am unaware of? Any ideas?

Regards,
Rolf

PS. I am curious as to what the future will hold for WMFS now the development has gone over to WMFS2. Links to issues in this thread on wmfs.info are no longer available...

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Hi,
I'm using WMFS2-git. I can not use Libre Office anymore (and I really want to). LO can be launched from xfce with the same user, so I think, its caused by wmfs. What can I do to use both of them?
The error I'm getting is:

The program 'soffice' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAtom (invalid Atom parameter)'.
  (Details: serial 187 error_code 5 request_code 17 minor_code 0)
  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

Do you use the same GTK theme in both Xfce and WMFS? If not, try changing it.

Well at least 3.4.5 still works. Got same error with 3.5.1.

I can confirm this problem, and say that it specifically seems to apply to the libreoffice-gnome package; uninstalling that lets LibreOffice run just fine, although it doesn't look so great.

Thanks.

Short answer: You can't.  WMFS2, unlinke the original WMFS, focuses on manual tiling.  You can assign certain clients to specific tags, but layouts are done manually.

Re: The WMFS Thread (Window Manager From Scratch)

That's a little  alarmist, don't you think? wink If manual tiling isn't your cup of tea, try a different WM.  Otherwise, play around with the tiling in WMFS to figure out how to customize layouts.  Basically there's only one layout ("spiral"), and whichever client has focus becomes the "master" client, so that when you open a new window it will be attached to either the sides or top/bottom of the focused client, depending on rotation.  It takes a little getting used to, but it's not bad by any means.
