alpha patch makes my dwm doesn't starting
3 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 6 Apr 2023
It's difficult to make alpha and systray patches sing together. Use bakkeby patch that does them both: https://github.com/bakkeby/patches/blob/master/dwm/dwm-alpha-systray-6.3_full.diff
Layout rule for a program
2 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 2 Apr 2023
I think the easiest solution here would be to incorporate all attach patches (for example via attachdirection or attachx) then have a client rule option that determines how the client should initially attach; as the master, first in the stack, at the bottom or above or below the currently focused window.2 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 2 Apr 2023
So far I found https://github.com/bakkeby/patches/wiki/monitorrules, but it works per monitor/per tag, but I want it to work per program like the default rules, except extended
How Do You Setup Workspaces Properly?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/stumpwm | 19 Oct 2022
I am trying to setup my workspaces for stumpwm, but am running into a wall due to not being able to find much documentation, is there is even support, for a few things I want to do. For some background, I am coming from dwm which I have used for a few years and even forked a few times. In dwm I had a rather simple, but extremely useful, setup where I would store specific types of programs on specific tags. I was able to figure out getting this done in stumpwm and it working just fine. The main issue with this portion of my workspace setup is that the Default workspace still exists. I have tried to figure out how to delete it, but cannot. I know how to rename it, so I could just do that and use it for my terminals, but the issue arises where I have no idea how to change it from the default stacking layout to the dynamic one. Any advice? Additionally, is there a way to get something like dwm's fakefullscreen?
dwm-flexipatch: statuscmd integration in dwmblocks
2 projects | reddit.com/r/dwm | 30 Sep 2022
I would like to add the statuscmd (for dwmblocks) feature to my dwm build. I tried this patch (from the suckless website) and this one, from u/bakkeby's Github, which seems more pertinent to my case since I use dwmblocks. I also patched my dwmblocks build with this patch, from the suckless website.
automatic drag(c,m)fact in resizemouse
2 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 8 Sep 2022
dragcfact is a patch that depends on another patch, cfacts, that assigns a 'weight' to each client in the view area and allows you to resize them by increasing or decreasing the weight of a given client. Yes, in the case of the tile layout that does allow for 'vertical' resizing.2 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 8 Sep 2022
[dwm] Vanitygasp per tag?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/suckless | 14 Mar 2022
Another way you could achieve this is via floatpos. One way I use this is to toggle tiled windows to become floating and take up 80% of the screen, which gives a kind of semi-fullscreen mode which is kind of nice.

I don't know what they are refering to, but the swallowing that has become popularized is not what that screenshot shows. The functionality is taken from Plan9's window manager, rio. When you launch, say, firefox from a terminal on non-swallowing window managers the terminal just sits there and the window is spawned on it's own. With swallowing, the terminal swallows the window in that the newly spawn windows takes up the window that is the terminal until it exists at which point the terminal window is restored. I can not an example of this in video, but there are patches to implement this into dwm such as rio draw/swallow

I'm new to vim. How to switch caps lock to escape properly?
3 projects | reddit.com/r/vim | 27 May 2023
I guess it should be possible with just setxbkmap if others have done it but I use kmonad to do that and a lot more remapping on my laptop. Kanata is another one I have heard good things about

Preferred way to play Moria/Angband on Chromebook?
2 projects | reddit.com/r/roguelikes | 22 Apr 2023
Are you able to get something like kmonad/kanata running on a Chromebook? I've been toying with kanata recently to make a roguelike layer for my laptop. The idea is to remap the block around wasd to the keypad (q=7, c=3), and put some of the more common keys like < nearby too. Then to access things like (w)ield, map spc to toggle the qwerty layer for the next keypress (so to send "w", you type "spc", "w").

By the way, for anybody stuck on a common laptop keyboard (like me): you can achieve a similar layer setup via software using Kmonad.

KMonad should be able to handle that scenario too with extra layer activated by Ctrl.
Any chance somebody here has bludgeoned the sezanzeb/input-remapper project on GH to work on void?
5 projects | reddit.com/r/voidlinux | 28 Mar 2023
There are a lot of daemons for keyboard remapping. I use kmonad, but i was going to try keyd and kanata. Both kmonad and keyd are on the package repository. kanata is not. Kanata with the tcp server could be useful for non global configuration.
When do you think you will switch to Wayland?

kmonad also gives you this feature and also works in Wayland iirc
Non-evil users: what modifiers do you use on emacs?

Standard US (ANSI) Qwerty, and Kmonad for the key fu. Pretty close to stock and boring, but a few 'conveniences':
