Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hey, I have a few questions. Currently using Subtle, so far I like it! Although everything has been full screen mostly thus far lmao.

Anywhoo:

Questions:

1. NCMPCPP and WeeChat are appearing on both Term and Chat views. I have the ncmpcpp and weechat on their respective tags, but they seem to show up under terminal as well. Is there a way to block it from terminals thus it only shows on the view I want it to? Its annoying as once they both appear on terms they get resized automatically and wont take up the full screen on the empty view.

2. Am I going crazy or is there no readme section for the individual widgets? The volume isnt working (even with the fix in faq), the gmail widget isnt showing, the pacman widget isnt showing... not sure whats going on with them. (they are added to the top bar)


3. Currently the Launcher wont actually exec any of my programs?? It shows up the auto completion works great, but after I click enter the program never runs... What am I missing?

Thanks big_smile

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Kanazky, not sure you found your answers but this is what I did to get volume sublet to work:
create blank file:  /etc/modules-load.d/snd_mixer_oss.conf
add this content to file:  snd_mixer_oss
reboot to load the oss module at boot.

Also concerning your launcher issue.  I've had no problems with the launcher.   
Add this to subtle.rb:   grab "W-x", "ruby /usr/local/bin/launcher.rb"  (change hotkey and path as desired)
Make sure both launcher.rb and levenshtein.rb are in the path location.

Don't know anything about your other question since I don't use those programs.

EDIT:  I should note I am using the latest dev Subtle and Subtle-contrib  from here:  http://hg.subforge.org/

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Just tried the launcher, and same problem : hitting "enter" doesn't do anything, although the launcher shows and seems to react just fine.

By the way, I have a little problem with the "borderless" mode : it doesn't really works, it just deletes the right and bottom borders, but leaves the left and top one O_o


kanazky > did you exclude ncmpcpp and weechat from the tag of your terminal on the term view? Same syntax as instance matching, except "exclude" instead of "match"

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

I have had the same issue trying to get clients borderless but the function only works if you specify in the tag "type :desktop" then on the next line "borderless true". Floating these clients also shifts the position off-center. Hope that helps smile

e.g.

tag "browser" do
  match "luakit|firefox"
  type :desktop
  borderless true
end

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Does X11 forwarding work with Subtle WM? I searched around and could not find any discussion about this topic.

RossAnder > oh, thanks a lot! I didn't see your post, but it is greatly appreciated!

heidenseek > I'm not a big SSH user so I may not have experienced everything you might need, but the last time I tried X forwarding from a (and to a) subtle machine, it worked perfectly with the classical tools.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

The host/server was my desktop running ubuntu and I was trying to forward to my laptop running arch with subtle. I was able to forward to a laptop (different laptop) running lubuntu just fine. Not sure if this is a subtle issue or something specific to my laptop (ThinkPad T60p).

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

What tool/command/option do you use to forward?

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

I have tried ssh -X user@server and ssh -Y user@server. Regular ssh works fine.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Hum. Never tried with the X nor Y options with SSH, but it works fine for me if I launch all graphical programs with "DISPLAY=0.0 foo", where 0.0 is the identification of the screen X11 is running on the host machine, and foo the name of the graphical program. I advise you to make an alias out of that, such as "sshx='DISPLAY=0.0'" because as you can see, it can quickly become fairly cumbersome.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

It does the same thing when defining DISPLAY. The splash screen loads then a window loads for the program but it is all white.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

Is there any reason that matplotlib would not work with subtle? I try to generate a plot from the python command line and nothing happens. There are no error messages or anything so it appears that the commands are fine.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

So this wm is already dead, isn't it? Someone should fork it.

Because the last issue update was on 2013-04 and the owner was having health problems apparently: http://subtle.subforge.org/news/52

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

sometimes there are no updates because the wm is all that the coder wanted to achieve and he/she has nothing else he/she wants to add.

Re: subtle - another tiling window manager

I'm trying it but not a single key works. I've copied subtle.rb to ~/.config/subtle/, changed rxvt for xterm and still nothing.

The only thing working is the mouse.

Any help would be good, thanks.
