Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Everything seems ok, maybe the Alt based keybinding isn't triggerd - I see you have tried to run roxterm via W-b - what about urxvt?

What does this output before/after first scratchpad invocation:
# subtler -clf scratch
# subtler -clf scratch -G

Also - try to run urxvt -name scratch manually and check above commands.

Oh! After another reboot (for clear result first "subtler -clf scratch") this things works now.

Thanks anyway smile

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Trying out subtle(coming from xmonad wm), and i gotta say im impressed. I like that you manually tile everything from the gravities. But the only thing im still used to from xmonad is opening a terminal into different workspaces. O well i guess thats what subtle is designed for, and you can use another program to get dummy tags on your terminal but im not that far yet.

My question is, can you wrap icons on the views/workspaces? Like having those small squares.xbm on the top left of a view.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

What has happened to Subtle.. i have just started to use it and i love it.. now when i try to expand my knowledge of subtle, the website subtle.subforge.org is down.. have been for a couple of days..

Is this the end of subtle? if so can someone fork it or suggest another wm.

Kind Regards Exebat

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hi all!

I'm being trying subtle and I want keychains. I've probed this:

grab "W-t a", "urxvt"

but it doesn't work. On :keychains appears W- when I pressed "Win-t" and that's all. After when I press "a" urxvt will not run.

What I'm doing wrong?

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

I'm trying to experiment with Subtle, but a lot of my keybindings/grabs don't work.  I can start a terminal and my browser, but even some of the defaults don't seem to do anything.  Can someone look at my subtle.rb and let me know if I've made some mistake somewhere?  It's mostly the default config.

Edit:  For example, of the grabs I've defined to start programs:

# Exec programs
grab "W-S-Return", "$HOME/bin/emet"
grab "W-w", "firefox"
grab "W-t", "$HOME/bin/ranger_spawn.sh"
grab "W-p", "dmenu_run -fn '-misc-ohsnap-medium-r-normal--11-79-100-100-c-60-iso8859-1' -nb '#000000' -nf '#e0e0e0' -sb '#000000' -sf '#4abcd4k'"
grab "W-Return", "urxvt"

only W-w and W-Return work.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

$HOME is a environment variable, a way to acess it in ruby is via ENV, like

grab "W-S-Return", "#{ENV["HOME"]}/bin/emet"

Other than that, "#4abcd4k" is not a valid color name.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hi smile

I'm trying Subtle as my first Tiling WM and everything's going smooth, it's fairly great.
My only problem isn't really one in itself : is the sur/sublets server momentarily down or has it been like this for a very long time? I haven't been able to access it from the site nor with the sur command since yesterday (when I first tried), so I'm wondering if I have to find another WM or if Subtle and his sublets are still maintained.

Thanks!

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

It still being actively developed, the latest update in the subtle's source occurred 6 days ago. You can grab and build from here (til the website be fixed): http://hg.subforge.org/sublets/file

Or use the mirror: https://bitbucket.org/unexist/sur-repository/src

Thanks for pointing those out.  I fixed those.

Now subtle won't even start (just drops me back to the console).  There must be something else seriously wrong, but "subtle -k" tells me the config file is OK.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Just wanted to tip my hat to a great project, this really is a great WM.

Sublets and sublext are awesome and have me hooked on learning more ruby.

Sadly I find actually managing windows/tags/views too cumbersome and I spend too much time fighting the WM to do what I want. Sometimes it takes 10 key presses to cycle through the clients in just the right order or direction to get to the one I want.

Although it goes against the main design of subtle I really hope to see a combination of Subtle with 'traditional' automatic tiling and layouts someday.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

There are, just look at the available sublets, but - at least to me - the Subtle way works really well (It's my default window manager for almost 2 years, in a "monocle" layout).

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

I should have chosen my words better, I meant automatic tiling combined with non strict tagging, eg XMonad/Awesome/400 others. The Subtle way as you put it just doesn't work for all I guess, as with most things in life.

I had given the layouts sublet a try but didn't find it to my liking, I had some redraw issues and some windows just plain refused to be tiled (that may have been a config issue). Also gave the retagging keybinds from the wiki a try for less strict tabs, but that has some glitches too like the views in the panel not immediately updating to show the move.

But I don't want to appear like I am complaining, I understand that this functionality goes against the core design.

I mostly just wanted to express that subtle has a great set of extras that other tilers lack and with a little more familiar/traditional tagging and tiling funcitonality it would be one of the best of that category too.

Yeah, the single thread design makes impossible real time update of panel/sublets.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hi.
Sorry to bother again, but I'm finalizing my subtle config and I have a little problem : when compton is on, every terminal window borders become semi-transparent. The exception is for urxvt, which behaves as it should; but the others (xfce4-terminal, terminator and lxterminal were tested) are concerned. Every other application borders render nicely. The terminal window borders keep the colors they should have, only semi-transparent, which is pretty disgracious hmm
Neither my compton command nor my compton.conf file are using the transparency options (in the conf file, every transparency option is set to 1; anyway I don't call the conf file, I only use compton with the command line parameters).

EDIT: Well, it might be good to know if other have the same problem but as for me, I finally decided to stick with urxvt, so "no more problem!" big_smile

By the way, is there any way to change the type of valid icons for sublets? It seems only .xbm files are valid, which is fairly limited for colors, for example.

EDIT2 : Well, I asked on IRC, it's impossible to use other icon formats, in order to limit the number of required libraries. So, everything's fine now x)

Any idea?
Thanks smile
