Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

HoaS: Makes sense to me; it's the combination of both that attracts me also. That's why manual tiling in Openbox suits me well enough. I feel tilers try to boss me around. I know, they should be configured first, but I don't find enough patience to do it properly.

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

I have never understood why this is somthing that you have to choose from because underlying this choise is the deathmatch between the mouse and keyboard. I want both and with as many options available as possible. Make configs where you can set up choises for any input device as long as it doesn't eat cpu power. I like openbox for it's keyboard support, and i3 for it's mouse support. Why not realize that generally people want both and move on to making cool stuff? Why choose eighter between a mouse and keyboard when all of us have both. It's like a fight between testicles/boobs.

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

It became some times i've turned on tiling but Openbox maximized tiling window.

<application class="Obapps" name="obapps" type="normal"><decor>default</decor><shade>no</shade><maximized>yes</maximized><fullscreen>no</fullscreen></application><application role="*"><maximized>yes</maximized><decor>no</decor></application></applications></openbox_config>

All my applications start in maximized mode, while i currently have only one monitor desktop it seems the best way possible for me.

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

I've been stacking all along. However, I see utility in tiling. Just not enough to convince me to give up openbox. But now that I have this nifty HP Pavilion g7 sitting here, I think I wil relegate this Toshiba running sid to light duty as a documentation machine. Man pages, web pages and the like. For that I think i3 will be nice. Then my new Jessie + Openbox will go on the machine I will primarily be working off of, at least until I figure out a solution for its overheating issues. I do prefer some manual tiling in Openbox for persistent terminals that I keep down low on the desktop for stuff like MOCP, etc. Ultimately, I'm going for the best of both worlds   big_smile

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

I stack.
The reason being I don't like having multiple windows open on the same space, at the same time.
That's why I have many desktops, and I usually have one window for desktop, and keep them maximized.
In the rare occasions in which I have an extra window on a single desktop, it's a popup window, and I rather have it on top of my main window, and close it as soon as I don't need it anymore.

What you do is perfectly do-able in i3 too. Pop-up windows would still stack on the top.

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

I'm a stacker, but haven't tried a tiler.  I also didn't know that openbox could tile.  I'll have to find out more about that.

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

I'd tile if there were a really low-learning curve tiler that had smart stacking. I got turned off to awesome and spectrwm for some reasons I forgot...

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

Changed my mind from stack since i posted this and this, currently I'm in tiling WM and this new adventure i like a lot apparently.

I like to manage so many applications at the same time without the interference of buttons, icons same generic icons, without much trouble logs generation at ~/.xsession-errors

I'd like to use more dmenu than righ click from obmenu.
Also I do not need to make eyes opened on obconf when it go to gtk3. It is incredible pity that gtk3 occupying even WM.

Yet even more reason to depart openbox/obmenu/obconf. I like config facilities on SpectrWM compared to Openbox.

Generally happy with those awesome goddess from tiling wm.

Regards,
Nili

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

Damn, look at those buttons and icons, Everything big BIG,

I think GTK3 will be always a transitional package mad . Any new update come up will ruin something.

Personally, haven't installed on my desktop, have very few gtk2 the rest cli... been saved from cli big_smile

I have fresh memory when i used to suffer from his big memory usage, adwaita icons breakage, his buttons like yours... last but not least multiple dependencies to install because gtk3 want, grrrrr.

GTK3 It is for the trash, that's not my opinion only.

No, not at all.

I was just illustrating the client-side decorations that result in maximise, minimise & close buttons in dwm windows.

The same thing happens with other GTK3 applications, I just used your port as an example 'cos it was the only GTK3 program on my system that I could think of off the top of my head.

No, indeed.

That's why I changed "don't work" (in the scrot) to "don't work well" (in the final post) wink

Your port works perfectly  O:)

I actually quite like having a close button on my dwm windows, I just need to disable the minimise & maximise buttons via dconf-editor...

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

I've never used a tiling UI. Ever. Not since my first forays with Windows 3.

So I prefer stacking. It's how it worked in MacOS, Windows, and damn near every linux WM I have used. So after using this method for 20+ years, why change? I have other things to do than learn new UI paradigms. That being said if someone wants to tile, go for it. Choice is a wonderful things.
