Re: Herbstluftwm thread? - Herbstluftwm thread!

I dont see what's so good abt this WM.
When I tried it out and first logged into it - no panel showing - no bar with tags showing
and yes i did copy the default files - autostart and panel to the .config folder

Re: Herbstluftwm thread? - Herbstluftwm thread!

oh I was hoping to get back here and alter my post before anyone noticed  ops
I just re-installed Herbstluft again today to give it another go and realized I should have dzen2 installed and then yes you do get a tag bar.
silly old me again.
going to see how I like it now. thanks
by the way the link to your screen shot is now dead so no-one can see your lovely work!

Re: Herbstluftwm thread? - Herbstluftwm thread!

Edit: never mind what's below - Although I had restarted the panel and also Win + r to reload I
found that after a restart the tray was showing correctly.
but any idea why having this in panel.sh didn't work
"$panelfolder/tray.sh" &
but having the full path did?

Cant get a system tray to show
I am just using the original files copied from /etc/xdg/herbstluft
In the panel file there is no call to a tray so I added
/home/dk/.config/herbstluftwm/tray.sh &   
the tray shows but below the panel so can only see a thin bottom edge to it
the tray.sh contents are

#!/bin/bash
exec trayer --edge top --align right --widthtype request --heighttype pixel \
            --height 18 --expand true --tint 0x222222 --transparent true \
            --alpha 200

Re: Herbstluftwm thread? - Herbstluftwm thread!

I was also surprised how bad  it was with dialogue interfaces like the dialogue you get from spacefm when renaming or making a new file - it would often just freeze and take up half the screen.

Edit, just installed slightly later version 0.5.3-1  still handles some dialogues in a flaky way but so far the spacefm rename dialogue hasn't froze. The drop down terminal Guake works oddly though.
It seems only a few Tilers can handle these things well out of the box. I never had any problems using i3 or awesome.

yeah I guess it's too much to expect when it's not even at version 1.0 yet   WMs like dwm (which i use) have been around for years so no wonder they handle these things better. I did like HL but these things need to be ironed out more before i would use it full time.

I couldn't even figure out how to open any apps with thi sone. minus terminal. I don't think I am meant for tiling WM's perhaps. I wanted to give it a go. It looked pretty. Never sure how people get tiling with some space apart from each window either.
