    The instructions on https://github.com/xmonad/X11 seem fairly straightforward, so I could update. But dealing with this library is not something I remember ever doing explicitly and is not mentioned (explicitly, at least) in the instructions have followed lately for (re)installing XMonad via stack (e.g., https://github.com/xmonad/xmonad/blob/master/INSTALL.md, https://github.com/slotThe/xmonad/blob/new-tutorial/INSTALL.md or https://brianbuccola.com/how-to-install-xmonad-and-xmobar-via-stack/). In fact, for Debian systems all that is suggested is an apt install of several packages. So I'd rather not try this experiment on my own right now since, in the past, I've sometimes been left with a mess that took me a while to get out from.

    Looks like your xmonad (or, more specifically, https://hackage.haskell.org/package/X11) is built without xinerama. Check if you have libxinerama-dev and then make sure X11 and xmonad are rebuilt.

  • Should raw library bindings drop the namespace prefix?
    5 projects | /r/haskell | 11 Dec 2022
    For context, I have written complete bindings to five different C libraries (freetype2, libvorbis, libspng, al, Chipmunk2D) and the question in the title may very well be the last one I have concerning FFI for quite some time. The question originates from the fact that chiphunk strips prefixes, something no other low-level library I've seen does.
