have you installed plan9port?  wmii can be configured with either an rc script, or a shell script.  i'm pretty sure that when wmii starts it tests for p9p, and if it's there it uses the rc.wmii file (which is written in rc), rather than the wmiirc shell script.  so if you've installed plan9port, you should use the rc file (or remove plan9port and continue to use wmiirc).

and i don't think the "nil" tag has anything to do with an error; it's just there by default when wmii fires up.

Re: The wmii thread

no i dont have plan9port installed, so i have a ~/.wmii-3.5/wmiirc file, but i change the file but it's not being read... i think it only reads the /etc/wmii-3.5/wmiirc file...

Re: The wmii thread

have you checked the wmii mailing list?  read through the archives and if that doesn't help, you can send a message and i'm sure somebody will be able to provide some insight.

Yes, the case statement is not properly formed, I would put the semicolon from the 'exit' command on the following line and add a second semicolon right after the first one. The whole case statement should look like:

case "$1" in
wmiirc)
    exit
    ;;
esac

Now, how your wmiirc got like this is another question. I haven't used the default script for some time, so it could be that there was a bug in the script. Perhaps an inadvertent key strike while editing the file? I do this often enough: my thumb grazes my laptop's touch pad as I'm typing and I insert or delete some characters where I shouldn't and don't clean it up properly.

I also think your status function has some unmatched parentheses. I think you need a single quote and a closing parenthesis after your awk statement and you need to remove the final single quote like the following:

# Status Bar Info
status() {
    echo -n $(uptime | awk '{ print "Uptime: "$3" days "$1" "}') '|' Volume: $(get_volume) '|' $(date +'%R %d/%m/%Y')
}

Good luck,

Re: The wmii thread

Thanks! jbromley big_smile:D:D those were the errors! tongue what is strange is that the default wmiirc in /etc/wmii-3.5 dir has the case statement not properly formed, because i didnt touch that tongue

Very grateful!

How very odd. I checked my version (from when I updated wmii on 2/14) and it has the same error. Though I usually use ruby-wmii, I'm pretty sure that some time in the last month I used the default config files to test things and I don't recall any problems having wmii start.

Anyway, I'm glad you've got things working.

Re: The wmii thread

hi! so far im using wmii for near a month and i dont think i come back to the "floating world" tongue

but i find that when i open a program it opens in tilin mode (perfect) but every time i sart a terminal with
ALT+(Return) every urxvt i open, opens in float mode instead of in tiling mode, how can i set it to open everytime in tiling mode?

TNX

another one: is possible to have two lines of info in the status bar instead of one?

Re: The wmii thread

I've had occasional problems with urxvt coming up in floating mode. Usually I just put it back tiled and the next time it works fine. I don't know why this happens, but it is infrequent enough to not bother me. If you've made any rules, make sure

/URxvt.*/ -> ~

is not one of them, as this will make urxvt be floating every time.

Anyway, I've made a couple of plugins for ruby-wmii (CPU info and Network interface info). You can see them in my screen shot below. If anyone is interested I can provide you the code. The code also includes tweaked versions of the standard plugins and a Ruby extension to get network info (there's a bug reading the /sys filesystem from Ruby.) Without further adieu:

i think i can actually add /URxvt.*/ -> 1 / sel but dont know what they do...

anyway jbromley i wanna know what font you use in those terminals! smile

Re: The wmii thread

My color scheme is loosely based on the original zenburn theme. I've used this scheme for a long time and have never seen a theme that was quite as satisfying for me. That is emacs that I am using. The color theme is color-theme-comidia from the emacs color-theme 6.6 package. I believe there are tools to convert the emacs color scheme to other formats (Xresources, maybe vim), but you'd have to look for these tools. If it's interesting for you I could post the elisp code for the color theme. I am using the terminus font (community/terminus-font in the pacman database) for my terminal. It is very clean and easy to look at. Proggy opti (aur/proggyfonts) is also good, but a bit smaller than terminus. You can see my configuration files at dotfiles.org. You can find everything there you need to replicate my setup.

Leo - the tag rules send windows (matched by their window class, try xprop in a terminal and then click on a window) to either a tag (like 1 or web) or to the floating layer (if you use ~ as the target of the rule). You shouldn't need any special rule for URxvt. If you are still having urxvt floating problems perhaps make sure urxvt isn't an alias or a symlink to something unexpected. Other than that I don't know why wmii insists on floating your terminals.

By the way, I noticed my network connection was down when I took the screenshot. The net monitor in the status bar shows wifi signal strength (if applicable) and upload/download speeds for each routed interface.

Re: The wmii thread

This happens when you restart wmii (run the wmiirc action.) I've seen this with ruby-wmii as well as the default rc and bash script configurations. It appears that when you restart wmii, the old running wmiirc and wmii are not shut down or killed. I don't know if this has bad effects. All the instances may be using the same memory, and in this case I don't think it would ever be a big deal.

Re: The wmii thread

Has anyone succeded in using trayer with wmii? I can't figure out how to make it display on top of the bar (can't remember if the default wmii bar is dzen), it just sits on top of it.

Re: The wmii thread

I have problem with ruby-wmii. Everything seems ok, but I can't set my urxt transparent. When I use Gnome urxvt is transparent, so .Xdefaults is ok.  I like this screenshot http://people.cs.vt.edu/~codemac/shots/ … _00.54.png and I want to make my urxvt similar to that. Please help me

Re: The wmii thread

Can you run a transparent urxvt from a terminal? Try

urxvt -tr

from a terminal and see if it comes up transparent. If it does, then probably your X resources are not being read in. Wmii does not automatically read them, while GNOME probably does. For wmii you've got to read the X resources in your .xinitrc or .xsession.

If the above urxvt command doesn't bring up a transparent terminal, it could be that you need to set your wallpaper using another method. How are you currently setting the wallpaper? I've used feh, esetroot, and nitrogen successfully.

By the way, I used transparent urxvt in ruby-wmii without any problems.

Regards and good luck,
j

Re: The wmii thread

Thanks for replay. But I used feh and habak to set the wallpaper but wallpaper is under my urxvt . I also try this command

urxvt -tr

but nothing happened. Maybe there is something wrong in .wmii-3.5/wmiirc-config.rb, but I don't change original one except xterm -> urxvt

Ok my fault. I change some entries in .Xdeafaults, and urxvt is transparent now.

Re: The wmii thread

Is there something similar to:

wmiir write /bar/ctl 'display 0'

in the current filesystem layout to hide the bar?


It is what you make it. Even if you don't know what to make it.

Not that I'm aware of. While not ideal, I just tested and you can squish it down by setting the font extremely small. This of course also affects the panel titles.

wmiir xwrite /ctl "focuscolors #000000 #000000 #000000
normcolors #000000 #000000 #000000
font -*-*-*-*-*-*-2-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"

Re: The wmii thread

Thanks. I'd like to have something like dwm's MOD+b.

  
  on_key("MODKEY2-b") { write "/ctl" , "focuscolors #9191FF #18185A #4c7899  
                                        normcolors #888888 #000000 #333333 
                                        font -*-terminus-medium-r-*-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"
  }

  on_key("MODKEY2-n") { write "/ctl", "focuscolors #000000 #000000 #000000
                                       normcolors #000000 #000000 #000000                                       
                                       font -*-*-*-*-*-*-2-*-*-*-*-*-*-*"
  }

A little workaround... smile

Re: The wmii thread

PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME. I can't get anything but the very basic wmii to work. wmii-ruby crashes. conky doesnt work. I cannot pipe mpc status to status bar. I have been looking all over the web for 2 months straight now. I really like wmii, and i would like to make it display things beyond the basic stuff that it comes with.I tried dwm, but i cannot pipe to dwm either. I have followed completely from scratch the Arch wiki, as well as the Gentoo wiki, as well as ANYTHING ELSE i could find on the web. I have tried asking around on wmii, conky, dwm and any other channels i could think of to no avail. My .wmiirc is the default one that is situated in /etc/wmii-3.5. Currently i have no wmii-ruby installed, cuz it makes my wmii crash.

why don't you try in wmii or in dwm, dzen2 and conky to pipe to dwm bar? look at my screenshot here:
desktop20080810172910zu1.th.jpg

You can pipe your own scripts or the entire output of conky, in this screenshot i pipe both, the bottom bar are my scripts, and the above bar is the conky output

and here is my config of dzen2 and conky-cli (AUR, conky without X dependencies)

hope you like it! smile
