DWM and xwinwrap

Hello there.

I am using xwinwrap to run a video as my wallpaper, but dwm keep showing it in the pager and the video only runs on one desktop.

I have no idea how to show the same  video on all desktops.

Any help?

Re: DWM and xwinwrap

They aren't desktops.

I don't know how xwinwrap works, but from the way you describe it you would have to apply every tag to xwinwrap. That probably won't work well unless it is all you want to run... tongue

Re: DWM and xwinwrap

Ah, the desktop-tag-thing.

So i must edit this?

static const Rule rules[] = {
	/* class      instance    title       tags mask     isfloating   monitor */
	{ "Gimp",     NULL,       NULL,       0,            True,        -1 },
	{ "Firefox",  NULL,       NULL,       1 << 8,       False,       -1 },
};

I moved to dwm recently, so i am dont know exactly how it works.

xwinwrap puts a window as wallpaper, something like that, or just leave the specified window borderless, sticky, unmovable, something like that. I use mplayer to run the video and xwinwrap puts it as wallpaper.

@ Off topic.

Do you solve rubiks cube? big_smile

Re: DWM and xwinwrap

Yes, you will need a rule, but unless I am missing something, that won't really help.

dwm will still dynamically manage any other applications in that tag; and if xwinwrap is tagged with every tag...


FWIW: there isn't really much point using this application with dwm, as you hardly every see your wallpaper/background with dwm--that is how it is designed to work...

Re: DWM and xwinwrap

Hum.

I still want to try big_smile

How would be the rules?

static const Rule rules[] = {
	/* class      instance    title       tags mask     isfloating   monitor */
	{ "Gimp",     NULL,       NULL,       0,            True,        -1 },
	{ "Firefox",  NULL,       NULL,       1 << 8,       False,       -1 },
	{ "xwinwrap",  NULL,       NULL,       1 << 9,       False,       -1 },
	{ "mplayer",  NULL,       NULL,       1 << 9,       False,       -1 },
};

something like that?

OT: Cool history about your avatar :3

I asked because i am a speedcuber and it is cool to find people who also cube. Until now never found someone who use linux and solve rubik's cube.

Re: DWM and xwinwrap

I remember reading something about getting xwinwrap to play nice with multiple monitors. Is that what you're trying to do? Or is it for switching workspaces on the same monitor?
