I didn't realize this was possible! Coupled with {top,right,bottom,left}_padding this is exactly what I was looking for. Eloquent solution.

Inconsolata-dz is an antialiased font and bar currently doesn't support antialiased fonts.

Besides, the font description itself is invalid (xlsfonts returns bogus lines where the only available size is 0 smile).

Ah, well that clears that up! Thanks for the response Bastien. Might I ask, what font do you use with your bar? I tried Droid Sans too, but that didn't work? If I'm not being too much of a pest, I'd appreciate your fontline tongue (I'm not one to usually condone "Mine doesn't work, so can I have yours" situations when it comes to computing, but, in this case I just want to eliminate any possibilities that it might be due to my X or font environment)

Re: bspwm — A tiling window manager based on binary space partitioning

Floating windows are behaving strangely. The behavior is a bit different depending on whether or not the following ("click to focus") is in sxhkdrc:

:button1
    bspc grab_pointer focus
  1. Spawn a window (urxvtc in my case) and toggle floating.

  2. Press super and button1 to move the window.

  3. If button1 is released before super, everything works as expected. If super is released first, attempting to move the window again will return it to its previous position, and begin moving from there. Switching workspaces or moving another window will also return the previously moved window to its old position. If "click to focus" is enabled, merely clicking (not even focusing another window, just clicking button1) will cause the previously moved window to return to its old position.

Also, on an unrelated note, urxvtc's border doesn't change color when issuing a presel command, while other window borders do. Is there something I can do to change this?

This isn't related to click to focus.

The problem is that when you release super before releasing button1, bspc ungrab_pointer is not called.

Maybe I can work things out so that the ungrab_pointer message isn't needed...

I do use urxvtc and have no such problem.

Re: bspwm — A tiling window manager based on binary space partitioning

@Supplantr:

Regarding the autostart:

I should have asked: does it happen with an empty autostart?

If it does, could you try with an empty .Xresources?

On a side note: $[] is a bashism, you should use $(()).

Re: bspwm — A tiling window manager based on binary space partitioning

I have a few questions I'd really appreciate an answer to:

1. When using 'ewmhstatus | dzen2', it seems that the window title is being cut off at the end (see below):
WdjZeOQ.png
Is this the expected behaviour? I'm presuming not, I've tried explicitly setting dzen2's width, however it makes no difference.

2. Is there a means by wich I might be able to display different info in dzen2 aligned to different areas? I was under the impression that it couldn't handle text alignment, but, using 'ewmhstatus | dzen2' shows the current workspace name in the centre, and the window title to the right. I'm using some short bash scripts & tmux to display the time, battery percentage and connected network. I'd ideally like to display this info in dzen2 in a clear, aligned manner.

Now, I do apologise for commandeering the thread, I know it's a place to discuss this marvellous WM, I've been singin its praise (and yours too Bastien) in irc and other such places, still loving it! Just wanting to get a bar to go hand in hand with bspwm. Maybe Bastien might even consider writing his own? tongue

I just wanted to express the general idea.

A few more steps are required to get this working (in particular, dzen2 -ta l).

Please read ewmhstatus's README: an example panel is given.

You can also have a look at my {launch,kill,reload}panel scripts.

(You need to define the EWMHSTATUS_FIFO environment variable.)

As you'll read in the README, you can display external informations but the alignment is not customizable.

In fact I will probably write a dzen2 version of the bar panel example instead.

The culprit was .Xresources, specifically:

URxvt.depth: 32

Without it the borders are colored correctly. Thanks for the help, and the $(()) tip.

Re: bspwm — A tiling window manager based on binary space partitioning

I've added a dzen2 panel example in the examples/panel directory.

It requires dzen2-bare-git, textwidth-git, xtitle-git, sutils-git, sres-git and ttf-dejavu.

It can be launched from your autostart with:

panel dzen2 &

Please note that the environment variable previously known as BSPWM_STATUS_FIFO is now called PANEL_FIFO.

Works everything now but you should also add sres-git in the deps.

It doesn't work for me sad

I'm sure it's something I have misconfigured...

When attempting to run 'panel dzen2' from a shell, it prompts that on line 5 & 6 there is no such file or directory. This is talking about the PANEL_FIFO fifo, which I've set in my /etc/environment, and can see that echoing it shows it as /tmp/panel-fifo, also catting that file shows informations piped in from clock and xtitle.

Did you change .xinitrc accordingly?

[ -e "$PANEL_FIFO" ] && rm "$PANEL_FIFO"
mkfifo "$PANEL_FIFO"
exec bspwm -s "$PANEL_FIFO"

Although this shouldn't be strictly related to your error.

Did you reboot or source your /etc/environment?
