Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Was just wondering about something i thought of today when i was making some minor changes in my config.

First i'll make alittle example of the subtle.rb....

grab "W-Return",  "urxvt -name ncmpcpp -e ncmpcpp"

tag "ncmpcpp" do
match instance: "ncmpcpp"
gravity :fullscreen
end 

Well, this is simple. Press Windows-key and Return to open ncmpcpp in an urxvt terminal.

But here's my problem.
What if i want to use some option for ncmpcpp? Like if i want to use another config file, wich i'm simply doing by typing ncmpcpp -c <path> in a terminal, but how am i doing it in the subtle config file? Guess it's a simple solution, but my brain got stuck on this one for tonight (working for 12 hours and spent 8 hours writing stuff makes me.... stupid. Even my english is bad at the moment)

Havn't found a need for it yet, but just for the fun of knowing and learning.


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

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

I dont think this would be the most proper solution but writing a script and executing it with urxvt -c script should work.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hello unexist if you are monitoring.

I has an issue this morning when I updated subtle from 0.10.3008-4 to 0.11.3224-1 it gave me the error failed to execute log in command after entering username and password in slim.

Downgrading allowed me to log back in.  Should I file a bug or would you like any more info?

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Does it work without slim (i.e. just startx)?

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Ok. Startx didn't work but I think that the issue is my config. Reading through the news on the subtle homepage I'm using some older syntax. Will modify this and do some testing later this week.

A teething 5 month old means this isn't really a priority.

And it's working again.

Putting this down to my own stupidity and lack of sleep again.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

hi unexist, when you have  a chance can you take a look at the output below, been dealing with an issue with the notify sublet, idk if its my lack of competence in setting the config or missing a package:

Hey,

I fixed that and added notify-0.45. Just upgrade to it and it should work again.

You are welcome, I also fixed the placement issue with the sublet window but that requires r3226.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hi !

I totaly fall in love with Subtle mechanics. Thanks for what you've done there.

I'm using a dual-head and I would know if it's possible to have some application using the two screen (for pictures) ?

--------------------------------------------------------

I try to make the second screen "independant" from the first.

Is it possible to have somethink like :

# Screens {{{
screen 1 do
  stipple false
  top     [:views1]
  bottom  []
  view    1
end

screen 2 do
  stipple false
  top     [:views2]
  bottom  []
  view    0
end

# == Views {{{
#
view1 "term" do
  match    "terms|default"
end

view1 "web" do
  match    "browser"
end

view2 "media" do
  match    "media"
end

view2 "work" do
  match    "gimp*|office"
end

Use the zaphod option for this, it spans the windows across all screens. W-= toggles that in the default config and you can use 'zaphod true' in a tag as well.

Currently this isn't possible but you can add a feature request on subforge, you are the second one asking for that within two weeks.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hi, I'm starting to use Subtle and I'm liking it, I'm starting to configure all the basics and I have an issue with the grabs. I'm trying to get XF86AudioRiseVolume to run the command for rising the volume via alsamixer with the grab:

grab "XF86AudioLowerVolume", "amixer set Master 5%-"

I did it with mute and it works but it doesn't work with rise/lower volume, my guess is the % or the + or - symbols are getting in the way but I don't know how. Is there something I'm missing?, I have done the key naming as the wiki says (the mute grab does work)

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

I installed some sublets but not all of them want to show up.
The battery sublet works fine and I'm also able to see the nm-applet.
But I can't see gmail, notify and volume. I put them all under screen, tried if they show up in a seperate bottom bar but nothing.
I think volume and notify should work right away; I also configured the gmail sublet.
Am I missing something? They're all listed under "sur list"

Volume: http://subforge.org/ezfaq/show/subtle?faq_id=27
Notify: should work if no other notification daemon is running (like xfce4-notifyd or dunst).

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hi, I've installed the volume sublet and it works but there is a bug, I have some grabs binded to my volume controls, when I use them to change the volume level the volume sublet doesn't update until I interact with it (change volume again using the mouse over the sublet or mute or unmute).

For the notify sublet, how can I know which notification system is running so I can shut it down in order to get it working, I have used ps -a | grep notify and doesn't say any.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

When switching to tag www (default config), Firefox appears with a lag.

For a couple of moments I see wallpaper only, and then Firefox starts.

1. W+3
2. wallpaper
3. After ~0.3 second
4. Firefox

Xmonad had no lag like that. Is it possible to solve this?

If launching google-chrome/gvim, there is no lag in switching to them.

gtx570 + nvidia 310.19-2 + subtle 0.11.3224-1 + firefox 17.0.1-1


Sorry for my poor English.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Nevermind - this was probably cairo 1.12 being nasty again. Downgraded to 1.10 and gvim runs smoothly.

I got a similar slow refresh problem on Nvidia crap too - but it affects gvim when switching from multiple terminal windows to a view with gvim. I've already tried using nvidia-beta, some urxvt flavors with patches and removing all bells and whistles from  .Xdefaults. It's not a consistent behavior - sometime the redraw is fast, sometimes it redraws quickly only the space between the gaps and space previously occupied by urxvt windows is blank.
