Fedora :: Gnome Shell Many Window Tiling

Jun 21, 2011

I'm looking for a feature in Gnome Shell that would allow me to tile all of the open windows on a desktop. Something akin to Fluxbox's ArrangeWindows keyboard shortcut. I know you can tile two windows side by side, but I would need something capable of tiling ALL of them. Does something like this exist, or would I need to look into writing a Gnome Shell extension?

Debian Multimedia :: An Introduction To Tiling Window Managers?

Nov 1, 2010

I'm deciding to go with a window manager instead of a desktop environment. I want to go simple and lightweight, and I know a lot of you run window managers such as openbox, fluxbox, and some tiling ones like xmonad, awesome and dwm. I want to give xmonad a try. For those of you who run tiling window managers, how do you know what is running in the background? There is no system tray in a screenshot such as this: [URL]. I'll be playing around with xmobar because that seems to be a popular panel with xmonad, and that's what's in that screenshot.

Also, how do you run your programs? You don't run it always from the command line, do you? When I want to run Chromium, I have to start up a terminal and load it that way, having the terminal and the browser open when using the browser. I know other window managers like openbox provide a right click menu, but xmonad doesn't (or does it?). I know a lot of people who use tiling window managers also use a lot of console apps, and I like that feel, but I don't think I'd want text for everything, such as the web.

Slackware :: Black / Dead Space In Terminal (Tiling Window Managers)

Mar 17, 2010

I've been playing around with two tiling window managers, scrotwm, and xmonad. I like xmonad better, but that's not the point. The point is that they both produce these strange black bars at the bottom when a terminal window is opened. Note that this does not happen in fluxbox/openbox, my other wm.
Its hard to explain, so please see the screenshots: [URL]
Note the black bar, or just dead at space the bottom of the the terminal windows. In the third image, the prompt is at the "bottom" of the window, or what should be. Again, this only happens in scrotwm and xmondad, no other wm's I've tested.

I just installed lxde on an ubuntu lucid box and after logging into it I found that the network manager applet doesnt start automatically and hence no internet connection. Though I could easily setup the net using ifconfig, I want to use network manager as this pc is used by my brother whos a beginner. In the terminal if I give "nm-applet &" the applet starts and the notification daemon states "connection established" but still internet is not available. So how can I configure the network manager in lxde?

Ubuntu :: Window Borders Keep Disappearing - Open Compiz Icon To Reload Window Manager?

Apr 23, 2010

I recently upgraded the motherboard/processor on my computer (as in quadrupled the processor and octupled the ram). The new board has a built in GPU (intel) and from searching the forums, I think this is part of the problem. Every time I boot up the computer, I need to open the Compiz icon and use it to reload the window manager before I see any title bars, borders, etc. 've tried the .bashrc hack (metacity --replace), but that doesn't do anything. In fact, whenever I open the terminal, I need to have two tabs open in order to use it, and when I close it all the borders go away again (even when I haven't done anything). Also, the onboard sound card (intel) doesn't work, but that's another task (I at least have a compatible card for that).

General :: Disallow Closing Last Emacs Window Via Window-Manager Close Button

Jul 8, 2011

I like to start Emacs as part of a login script and leave it running for the duration of my login session (which is typically weeks).

I have scripts to call emacs-client which will allow me to use a file-manager or Windows Explorer to locate files and right-click to edit them in Emacs.

I often end up with a lot of emacs windows (frames) open and I like to just be able to close them by clicking on the MS-Windows or KDE X button at the top-right.

The trouble is, if the window is the last one, this will shut down emacs which will lose all kinds of interesting history information.

As a work-around I use C-x 5 0 which won't let me close the last frame but this is often not as convenient as using the mouse

Does anyone know how to configure Emacs so that it can intercept the Window-Close button of the last frame to either request confirmation or simply disallow it?

On MS-Windows, disallowing closing of the last window may cause logoff to hang if emacs is still running but I'm not too worried about that.

Ubuntu :: Network Manager Battery Icon On LXDE Panel?

Jun 30, 2011

I haven't got Lubuntu as such, I've installed LXDE to try it out with Ubuntu 11.04 sometimes. For it to be practical for me I need the battery icon and Network Manager on the panel. I'm assuming this can be done easily enough as Linux Mint LXDE has got it, or Network Manager at least. i need NM to easily start my Mobile Broadband dongle's connection.Also, can touchpad tapping be turned off in LXDE, and how? I have it set up to have no tapping in regular Ubuntu but this is undone when I boot LXDE.

Fedora :: 15 LXDE - Unable To Get Package Manager?

May 26, 2011

I tried installing Fedora 15 Gnome on my 8 year old laptop, but it didn't work so well since Gnome 3 couldn't start due to my graphics adapter (although it worked fine in Fedora 14), so I tried installing Fedora 15 LXDE and had much better results. Any way, after running yum update, I tried to install Google Chrome since I prefer it over FireFox, but I noticed that I didn't have the opton to automatically install it with a package manager, only download it. Once downloaded, I tried to open it via the GUI and it brought up a screen asking me what application I wanted to use to open the rpm. It didn't even know how to install a rpm!! I then tried to install it via the command line, but it failed because the package was dependent on others. After looking around in the Administration menu, there does not seem to be any package manager installed. How can this be? I've used many different versions of Linux before, but none that didn't have a package manager or didn't know how to install it's own native binaries. I don't get it.

Debian Multimedia :: LXDE - Getting Window Maximize / Minimize Buttons To Look Bigger

Jan 4, 2015

I am using Debian Wheezy with LXDE and I am using the monitor resolution as 1280x1024. Now the Window maximize, minimize buttons look tiny and its pretty irritating. Is there anyway I can make them bigger ? I tried googling but whatever documentation I found was regarding GNOME not LXDE since not many people use it. I don't want to try any online themes of Linux just want the buttons to be bigger. Is there anyway ?

Debian Multimedia :: Xcompmgr 'master' - Rounded Window Borders Don't Draw And Redraw Properly When Using The Terminal (gnome-terminal And The LXDE And Xfce Ones)

Aug 26, 2011

I find xcompmgr more than adequate for making a desktop look pretty modern, and I don't like the more extravagentCompiz gimmicks - but there is one thing that irritates when using xcompmgr which someone here might have worked round.

Rounded window borders don't draw and redraw properly when using the Terminal (gnome-terminal and the LXDE and Xfce ones) or system monitor and moving them from their default place. You get this little white botch at the corners. I'm not massively technical and I'm ambivalent about how much more I want to learn as I have plenty of creative outlets already, but I would like to solve this. Somehow xcompmgr is treating these programs as a different class? It's capable of drawing the window borders properly as it is just these two programs that get botched. Possibly this doesn't get noticed as maybe people usually use xcompmgr with openbox and LXDE and their square window borders. I did do a search but there was nothing matching what I saw.

Ubuntu :: Vim-like Window Manager ?

Nov 30, 2010

I'd like to find a window manager that has mouse support but can also be set up (with least difficulty) in a dual-mode way, similar to Vim.

Here's how it'd work: some simple shortcut like ctrl-space would go into command mode. Ideally, there'd be a visual indicator of the mode, like a few pixel wide line on top of screen that turns green/blue with a configurable colour.

Commands would work like this:

Not essential, but would be nice: shade/darken all but current window, like a setting in Compiz.

I've heard about WMs like Ion, awesome, etc. Which one of them, if any, would be best to modify to work in this way? A big bonus would be if it was scriptable in Python, but I'm not counting on that..

Ubuntu :: Awesome Or Tiling WM Users Unite

Dec 11, 2010

So who here also uses awesomewm, or a tiling window manger? I've been using awesome for about 6 months at home, and started using it recently at my new job on my desktop at work. Whether it's at work or home, I've noticed that a tiling WM has increased my productivity 10 fold. I'm able to organize everything by tag, then tile. With awesomewm I have come to love it's reliainace on the LUA language. If I need a new feature, I can add it pretty easily. i.e. I have created custom prompts with some scripting to rdp and ssh into box's with the login information, resolution, already inputed.

Put in some if/else in there also, for certain hostnames that require different credentials, or different settings. It also mounts the c$ or root drive once connected to my /ticket/##### directory. So it's a snap to copy any file over. With LUA I've been pretty much able to extend the window manger to my needs with any script I can imagine. So come on everyone, discuss! Whether you are using awesomewn, or dwn or another great tiling window manager. Post your code, your settings, lets make this thread as big as the conky thread.

Ubuntu :: Tiling And Compiz Zooming Effect?

Jan 22, 2011

I'm pretty new to ubuntu/linux and my knowledge about window managers is limited, so please bare with me. I was wondering if anyone knows a decent wm that supports tiling and can also have the zoom effect from compiz (mod+scroll up/mod+scroll down). I know compiz can achieve some tiling with the grid addon but that's not that great. I was looking for something more similar to how xmonad manages windows and workplaces.

Ubuntu :: Compiz Settings For Maximize / Tiling

Mar 9, 2011

I have been missing this feature from windows, and had thought I would just have to do without, but today, people have alluded that it is possible to do with compiz. I am referring to the ability to take a window, drag it to the edge of the screen and it to then fill up that side of the screen.. or if drug to the top, maximize itself. I have looked and messed with settings, and have been able to do something to the effect of dragging my mouse to the edge of the screen will kind of tile windows, but it does it to all my windows or all of a certain type and whatnot.

And I want to do it to a specific window, and then another - for the side by side viewing. it also does not vertically maximize it, only taking a portion of the screen from top to bottom. I have been able to do it this way by having only 2 windows open and using a keyboard to do so, but i would like to be able to use only my mouse. Is there a way to drag one window the the edge of the screen and have it maximize to that half-side of the screen AND/OR drag to the top and have it maximize to fullscreen?

Ubuntu :: How To Set Default Window Manager

Mar 25, 2011

I have a pretty vanilla install of Ubuntu Lucid. I would like to change my default WM to sawfish. I have it installed, and it works routinely, I would just like to have it start automatically on log-in, rather than Lucid. A few sources have suggested that the way to do this is during log-in. They refer to a "session" I could choose, which would allow me to set the WM. I remember doing this in the past, but can't find such an option on the login page, now.

I have also experimented with changing .gconf/desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/ using both gconf-editor and emacs. However, when I change "/usr/bin/compiz" to "/usr/bin/sawfish", log out, and log back in, I find that compiz starts anyway, and the setting in that file has been restored to compiz. Clearly, the gconf mechanism is getting the information from some other source.

Ubuntu :: How To Install A Window Manager

Jun 14, 2011

I am trying to install clfswm. I am able to run it from a tty. I start a new X server with

startx xdm --:1
Then in the new X server, I run

clisp -K full full /home/seb/Downloads/clfswm-1102/load.lisp


It just doesn't work. Actually, I get an entry in the session selection thing, but when I try it, the login screen disapears a sec or two, and then comes back. If after that I try to open a session with another window manager/desktop manager I get a black screen (with a few things in it) that looks like clfswm, but I can't do anything in it.

I have only used kde and gnome until now, and installed openbox to try to see how it works) so I don't know what to do right now.

In case it helps, the installation instructions. I didn't try putting the said line in my $HOME/.xsession or wherever it should be because I thought it would replace the kde login (and that is not what I want). I think what I want is a .desktop file in /usr/share/xsessions/, I'm just not sure what to put in it.

Ubuntu :: Window Manager Doesn't Start?

May 2, 2010

I just upgraded Ubuntu from 9.10 to 10.04 and am having a problem with the window manager. When I log in and after it applies my background and the panels load, the window manager doesn't start right away, so if I open a program it won't have a top to it. I have to turn on Compiz, which turns off every time I turn on the computer. If I set it to normal, it searches for drivers and then the tops of windows appear. I have had to do this every time since I upgraded. I would do a clean install, but I have no way to back up my data since I have so much. How can I fix this?
