Re: sxhkd — Simple X HotKey Daemon

I just came along this thread, because I'm searching for a way to swap mouse buttons only within windows of a certain application. Is this somehow doable with sxhkd? Swapping middle and right mouse would be fine then. Or do you have another idea how to achieve this?

Re: sxhkd — Simple X HotKey Daemon

I just came along this thread, and I was wondering if there was a way to kill a focused window that is a subprocess. Like say I have chrome and hangouts open, but I want to specifically kill hangouts.

Is Hangouts a native app, or webapp? If it's the former, xkill should be ok.

Re: sxhkd — Simple X HotKey Daemon

It's a webapp. I know that some wm's (xmonand, dwm) can do it. But how can I do kill sub-processes.

If it's a webapp, then it's probably beyond the WM manager's control.
There's no way to close a single tab from a WM perspective. It's not a window, and it's pretty hard to for the WM to determine which process is associated with that browser tab.

this works for me, although when I first installed rofi to test it i commented out dmenu_run and put rofi -show run under the comment. this didn't work, felt silly but eventually figured out that it had to be before the comment.

Re: sxhkd — Simple X HotKey Daemon

Hi!
Thanks for this awesome app!

I was wondering if you have implemented the context aware keybindings (detecting clicks on rootwindow):

This seems to work on any click, not just on the root window.

Hotkeys are, by definition, global.

I wanted this fuctionality for stuff like resizing wondows by grapping them from window gap and so on, so I wrote (with great amount of help) this bash/awk wrapper to xev to do that:
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=204039

But now I heard that sxhkd might do this after all, which I would would prefer as it is lighter and cleaner than my solution.

So did it get implemented at some point?

Re: sxhkd — Simple X HotKey Daemon

Can someone help me with a key-chain, that includes some terminal ssh-calls:

example:

super + t ; { t, r, a, b, c }
  { uxterm \
  , uxterm -e su - \
  , uxterm ssh -p 12345 -e user@a.org \
  , uxterm ssh -p 23456 -e root@b.net \
  , uxterm ssh -p 111111 -e admin@c.info \
  }

First ssh command works - the following calls fail.
Doesn't matter, which server is in first place.

Supposing, that the @ is the bad, I tried
-e  '...'
-e "..."
\@
@@
plus some more strange things...

Anyone, who knows the trick?

Re: sxhkd — Simple X HotKey Daemon

Are you chaining ssh calls using a hotkey daemon? Why not use ProxyCommand or similar?

Re: sxhkd — Simple X HotKey Daemon

I want to start different coloured uxterms running ssh-shells on different servers.
As I don't need all the servers at once, but sometimes fast, I tried to implement that with the formidable sxhkd. wink

But your post gave me the idea, that I could do that the one-comand-per-call way... big_smile

Re: sxhkd — Simple X HotKey Daemon

I am looking for a way to execute a command before entering the variable keys of a chord chain (no matter which variable key that is provided).

Kind of like this:

mod3 + m : {l, s}
        echo "BSPWM mode active" > /tmp/bspwm_mode; \
        bspwm_menu {lock, suspend}

In this example, the echo-command is executed _after_ pressing one of the variable keys (l and s), and then the bspwm_menu-command is executed.

I would like to know if there is a way to run echo command directly after pressing mod3+m and _before_ entering either of the variable keys.

Does anyone know?

Thanks in advance,
wololos
