  • What are some ways you used Python to make YOUR life easier?

    I have created full on programs to systematically created screenshots with the game emulators with RetroArch. Also an automation tool to use a preexisting program named chdman that converts files into a needed format (also unpacking from archives). A little Python script to create a recents list of files for Vimwiki. I also created a program to access 🌈 emojis 🌈. I wrote my own GE Proton downloader and manager. Hell even the window manager I am using on Linux is written and configured in Python, Qtile. I wrote one or two plugins for it and the entire configuration is written in Python, meaning I can use functions, modules and every logic of Python to enhance it. It's Awesome.
  • Garuda qtile wayland edition black screen issue
    2 projects | /r/qtile | 25 Oct 2022
    Hi, the failed XWayland startup isn't being handled correctly. I posted a fix here: https://github.com/qtile/qtile/pull/3928. Would you be able to test it out and see if it fixes the issue? It will catch the RuntimeError, but maybe the SIGSEGV will happen anyway.

    Yes exactly, those changes shown on https://github.com/qtile/qtile/pull/3928/files
  • Simple python script to show Qtile keybinding.
    2 projects | /r/qtile | 17 Aug 2022
    I wonder if it works with key chords? (currently not testing) I am working too on some keybinding lister for my key chords only. And BTW there is also from Qtile itself: Keybindings in images / src, just in case one has overlooked it. But it does not work with key chords either.

    I am experiencing this very weird, Qtile issue https://github.com/qtile/qtile/issues/3276 so I need to kill Qtile probably once a week. If it was any other DE/WM, I would have ditched it a long time ago, but Qtile has a special place in my heart :-)

    Mmm, qtile's official website is not in the "https" scheme, it's http://www.qtile.org/ (see search engine results or https://github.com/qtile/qtile).

    I'd strongly recommend you spend some time reading our docs and the default config to see how to configure qtile.
