Nothing much,
  • Colorview, env-info, cmus all organized nicely for the scrot.
    Wall effect with hsetroot blur and brightness options.
    Notification 10s using bar set with a keybinding. Would like to set auto on song song change, but that's another day.
    Colors are still browntown2 and font is neep.

I somehow developed suddenly a mild erection for useless gaps and the borders in 2bwm, and as I fancy floating windows to be in bad taste, I rekindled my old romance with Herbstluftwm. Ratpoison had gone a tad stale in my mouth, but now I'm nursing a semi again for a wm.

Other specs mostly still the same: conkeror, weechat, ncmpcpp, tty-clock, urxvt and tmux. Also conky for some bloatness. Bar is dzen2, font termsyn. Colors are shamelessly ripped off from Emacs Jazz theme, this one: https://github.com/donderom/jazz-theme
The weird shit next to browser is just some grep in a loop from my org todo-files.

And the scrot apparently made psychedelic artefacts, as the two monitors have different resolutions.

nice one. herbstluftwm is a top notch wm. My scrots don't show it, but I still use it.

Thanks. Your scrots were a huge inspiration, if I'm honest (both 2bwm and Hlwm).

slowly moving from i3 to herbstluftwm. finally starting to understand how to use fonts with dzen2 properly.
050515_0257.png
the dzen2 config is still a hack though; there is no proper align_right, just the textwidth program which, at least dzen2-textwidth, does not work with xft fonts, thus measuring nothing. so i set the width of the right bit manually, but this will obviously fuck up again when i want to add, for example, moc output. so i'll see how to circumvent that (2nd bar perhaps?). in the meantime i found this: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=180244 however libxft-dev pulls in a shitload of other stuff that i am not sure i want to commit myself to. still experimenting, will see what happens.

btw, anybody have any idea whether it is possible to open each new window in its own frame? i hate that in hlwm you cannot reorder/resize windows, only frames, so figured letting each have its own frame would be the best workaround.

Wow Rhow, exceptional scrot and you are surprising again. :) Love that wall, feel free to share it. :)

As for the rest I cannot help you, never used hlwm.

yeah rho, you're on fire!

One of the things I really like about the herbst is saving layouts. You can save a layout for each workspace; even adding to you autostart. For example in my autostart, I have

Code: Select all

# iRc
hc load iRc '
(split vertical:0.670000:0 
    (split horizontal:0.430000:1 
    (clients vertical:0 0xc00009) 
    (clients vertical:0 0x1400009)) 
    (clients vertical:0 0x1600009))
'
# mEdiA
hc load mEdiA '
(clients vertical:0 0x1a00009)
'
# cLi
hc load cLi '
(split horizontal:0.400000:0 
    (split vertical:0.780000:0 
    (clients vertical:0 0xe00009) 
    (clients vertical:0 0x1800009)) 
    (clients vertical:0 0x1000009))
Also, check the Arch boards for herbstluftwm. There is a thread by ninjaaron, the king of the herbst. https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=128646

And finally, make life easy and set an alias in you .bash_aliases

Code: Select all

alias hauto="[editor] $HOME/.config/herbstluftwm/autostart"

thanks guys, and for all the tips and stuff!
@drew: what is your alias for? restarting it? because the docs say best way to do so is

Code: Select all

herbstclient reload
and was planning on making an alias for that :)
