Watch the config.h file... There is some baisc shortuct in.

If you want to change/add/delete them you need to change this file and compile the program again.

Hi, thanks for comment wink

I will probably not implement a stack because I don't use it, but if I have the time I can try to make a patch with this functionnality.

Re: catwm, Cute and Tiny Window Manager

Wow! This may seriously replace awesomewm on my laptop!

EDIT: Actually, I had a look around the code on github, and I may want to help out smile

EDIT EDIT: catwm is now my full-time window manager!

I will change the git server one of these days, I just got my own server and I installed git on it... I'm just waiting for my domain name.
If you are interested I'll contact you soon.

I'd like that very much. smile

I'd like to make a suggestion, if that is okay: Would it be possible to make the focus of a client change depending on whether or not the cursor is placed above the client and not only with mod-j, much like DWM does? I occasionally move my mouse over a client to change the focus as a force of habit and I'd like it a lot if Catwm had this functionality.

Yep it's planned... And the possibility to swap a window to an another desktop (I'll make that tonight normaly)

Re: catwm, Cute and Tiny Window Manager

I just add the possiblity to swap the current window to an other desktop \o/

I think that I will implement one or two more function (like select a window with the mouse) and after that I think I'll need to "purge" a little the code because it begin to be crappy sad

btw, if someone know how to detect "unmanaged" window (like the file explorer when you open a file in a program or the download popup of firefox) I'll really appreciate the tip because I detected some bug with these window sad

Re: catwm, Cute and Tiny Window Manager

Suggestion: The ability to increment and decrement the desktop with the Mod key + Left/Right.

Example: I was on, say, desktop 4. I hit Mod+Left and it switches to desktop 3.

I know this code doesn't work with catwm, it is just "theroretical".

void next_desktop() {
         if(current_desktop == 9) {
                 change_desktop(0);
         }
         else {
                 change_desktop(current_desktop+1);
         }
 } 
void prev_desktop() {
         if(current_desktop == 0) {
                 change_desktop(9);
         }
         else {
                 change_desktop(current_desktop-1);
         }
}
    {  MOD,        XK_Left,            prev_desktop,   {NULL}},
    {  MOD,        XK_Right,            next_desktop,   {NULL}}

Re: catwm, Cute and Tiny Window Manager

Hey again. I think I found a minor bug in the fullscreen mplayer toggling. Whenever I press fullscreen in mplayer it uses almost the whole screen except for the top and left side of screen (where I see my border color), and whenever I toggle (un-fullscreen) mplayer it moves the window down and to the right another pixel. If I keep toggling fullscreen back and forth it continuously moves the window further down and to the right. Not a big deal but I was wondering if I'm the only person experiencing this or not.

P.S. I like the desktops! Especially glad to move windows to another desktop, although it messes up sometimes when re-tiling the windows. I like how catwm is turning out. :}

Done !!

Why not just change the change desktop function to this:

void change_desktop(const Arg arg) {
    client *c;
    if(arg.i > 9) {
        change_desktop(0);
        return; 
    }

    if(arg.i < 0) {
        change_desktop(9);
        return;
    }

    if(arg.i == current_desktop)
        return;

    // Unmap all window
    if(head != NULL)
        for(c=head;c;c=c->next)
            XUnmapWindow(dis,c->win);

    // Save current "properties"
    save_desktop(current_desktop);

    // Take "properties" from the new desktop
    select_desktop(arg.i);

    // Map all windows
    if(head != NULL)
        for(c=head;c;c=c->next)
            XMapWindow(dis,c->win);

    tile();
    update_current();
}

and config.h to this:

    {  MOD,        XK_Left,        change_desktop,   {.i = current_desktop - 1}},
    {  MOD,        XK_Right,            change_desktop,   {.i = current_desktop + 1}}

This will cut down the need for two extra functions..

No control of anything.
Switching desktops and everything else doesn't work (I can understand shortcuts, because MOD+k is different than MOD+K)

EDIT: Also, I am experiencing the above problem after I close all instances of firefox, regardless of whether caps lock is on or not.

Ok, as you say with caps lock it's normal that your shortcuts doesn't work... But after closing firefox isn't sad I'm  trying to reproduce the bug but I can't get it on my machine sad

Hmm...closing firefox normally seems to be alright most of the time, but killall firefox seems to reproduce this.

EDIT: It also happens after firefox crashes. There are no such issues with uzbl.

Re: catwm, Cute and Tiny Window Manager

I think I found a bug.

Sometimes, if open a window on a desktop that has no windows open currently, it will act as if there is a slave window beside it. Here's a screenshot.
