Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

@Temetka: my experience is that an interesting tiler will raise ones general stacking awareness/knowhow/conceptuality as well.

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

^ This. You should (in my opinion) at least give it a try for a few hours! It might open your eyes and enhance your stacking workflow wink

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

^ It just took a few minutes on me to figure out that I lost much of my time with stack, just a few minutes may be sufficient big_smile

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

I like a lot these settings on spectrwm.conf, perhaps they're available on other WM.

#startup apps autorun
autorun      = ws[1]:rxvt -e alsamixer
autorun      = ws[1]:rxvt -e top
autorun      = ws[2]:spacefm
autorun      = ws[3]:iceweasel

#customize workspace layout on start
layout       = ws[1]:0:1:0:0:horizontal
layout	     = ws[2]:0:0:0:0:vertical

#set workspace names on start
name	     = ws[1]:Term
name	     = ws[2]:SpaceFM
name	     = ws[3]:Iceweasel

Every time that i auto startx, term/apps launch itself on relevant workspaces. How awesome, clean 'n simple smile

Another +1 for tiling/spectrwm

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

In Windows 7 I have a handy shortcut, super key plus left or right arrow, to quickly fill half the screen with a window. It's a nice tiling-like feature. Can this be implemented in Openbox? I know the shortcut for resizing with snapping, but it's cumbersome in comparison to the Windows feature I describe. It doesn't seem I should have to go to a tiling WM for this simple feature.

Re: Do you tile or stack? And why?

This is already part of openbox. I believe it's part of the default configuration in Crunchbang/BunsenLabs. I also think it is already set-up to super+left/right as well... It is on my set-ups anyway.

The relevant bit of rc.xml: Should go in the <keyboard></keyboard> section.

  <!-- A bit of tiling -->
    <keybind key="W-Right">
      <action name="GrowToEdgeEast"/>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-Left">
      <action name="GrowToEdgeWest"/>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-Down">
      <action name="GrowToEdgeSouth"/>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-Up">
      <action name="GrowToEdgeNorth"/>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-A-Left">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>cb-aerosnap --left</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-A-Right">
      <action name="Execute">
        <command>cb-aerosnap --right</command>
      </action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-A-c">
      <action name="UnmaximizeHorz"/>
      <action name="UnmaximizeVert"/>
      <action name="MoveResizeTo">
        <width>70%</width>
        <height>70%</height>
        <x>center</x>
        <y>center</y>
      </action>
    </keybind>

It's been there for years!

How so? I too use Super+L, Super+R, Super+UpArrow, Super+DownArrow to snap half screen to the left, right, up, or down, respectively.

    <!-- Keybindings for window tiling -->
    <keybind key="W-Left">        # HalfLeftScreen
      <action name="UnmaximizeFull"/>
      <action name="MoveResizeTo"><x>0</x><y>0</y><height>100%</height><width>50%</width></action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-Right">        # HalfRightScreen
      <action name="UnmaximizeFull"/>
      <action name="MoveResizeTo"><x>-0</x><y>0</y><height>100%</height><width>50%</width></action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-Up">        # HalfUpperScreen
      <action name="UnmaximizeFull"/>
      <action name="MoveResizeTo"><x>0</x><y>0</y><width>100%</width><height>50%</height></action>

    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-5">        # 50% width, height
      <action name="UnmaximizeFull"/>
      <action name="MoveResizeTo"><x>center</x><y>center</y><width>50%</width><height>100%</height></action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-w">        # Center on screen
      <action name="MoveResizeTo"><x>center</x><y>center</y></action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-7">        # Top left corner
