There is no green or red text in a diff file, it's just a plain text file.  Some viewers will syntax-highlight it that way though.  Lines starting with "+" are to be added.  Lines starting with "-" are to be removed.  Lines starting with neither of these are just to provide context.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

I just had a brief experiment with GNOME 3.10 in combination with DWM. I'm sure most of you are aware of the new GtkHeader widget, which basically takes away all the window manager decorations and lets the client have its own close button. It looks nice (imo) but 1) only very few core GNOME applications use it at the moment (only two in my setup) and 2) DWM's borders dissapear around these applications.

Before I make myself ridiculous by asking about this issue on the Suckless mailing list, I'd like to know: is there a workaround you can think of? I think this will also affect other tiling window managers (honestly, I haven't tested) that use Xlib.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

I for one had not heard of this new widget - but that's not saying much, I'm not a widget fan.  But I could test this in other WMs if you can give an example of one of those very few programs that use it ... preferably one with few dependencies.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Well, they're all GNOME applications so you're going to haul in a bit of dependencies... wink The two that used it in my system were Nautilus and gnome-system-monitor. I think I know which of the two you're going to pick.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

I just installed gnome-system-monitor (and 130MB of other stuff!), but I don't see anything like what you describe.  First, the window does keep a border if my WM is set to have window borders, but I also don't see anything resembling this header widget.  Does it need to be configured or activated some how?

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Oh, I forgot to mention you have to be on [testing] to use GNOME 3.10 at the moment. Sorry

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Perhaps I'll revisit this when it hits the main repos then.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

That's fine by me, thanks for initially wanting to try it out! smile FWIW, I also don't run testing - I just upgraded to it to see the new widget and then quickly downgraded again, not just because I also prefer stable but also out of dissapointment of how few applications actually use it. For now, and at least until GNOME 3.12, this only brings more fragmentation...

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Practically I use the base code, I have made only a few changes in config.h. However there is one thing I would like to change: make the selection of tags inverted BUT the statusbar should remain unchanged (i.e not inverted). If I change the selfgcolor and selbgcolor the statusbar gets affected too. Is there a patch for this and if so which one is that? Thanks.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

The statuscolors patch would make this straightforward, but it may be (a lot) more than you are looking for...

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Change the following line in drawbar() like this:

drawtext(tags[i], col, urg & 1 << i);

to

drawtext(tags[i], col, True);

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Hello Unia, if I do this the normal background color for tags gets "normfgcolor" not the "normbgcolor". Otherwise the selected tags and the statusbar colors are OK.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Does it work if you swap those normal colors in config.h? I think that is the quickest solution I can come up with.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

Unofrunately not, now the unused / empty statusbar and the text set by xsetroot pick up the "correct" colors (so they look like selected all the time). Thanks anyway, probably I will check the statuscolor patch.

No problem.
Well I have very basic knowledge in C so I am just hoping someone can find this out (if anybody interested at all). Meanwhile I will look into the statuscolor patch.

Re: DWM Hackers Unite! Share (or request) dwm patches.

I don't maintain patches, but I incorporate the patch into my 'fork' (version?) of dwm here: https://github.com/bbenne10/dwm

EDIT: Unia beat me to it tongue
