Menubar Parsing Bug

The menubar library breaks entirely if it cannot parse every .desktop file in its search path. For example, it breaks if one of your .desktop files is a broken symlink.

For example, run

# ln -s /foo /usr/share/applications/broken.desktop

Restart awesome, and open the menubar. You will get an error at lib/menubar/utils.lua:131 because it assumes that it will be able to parse every .desktop file. It's an uncommon situation, but it's pretty annoying that it breaks the whole menubar rather than skipping the problematic file.

Changing behavior of layout

My favorite layout is awful.layout.suit.tile.left. But I would like to slightly change the default behavior:

I have two windows on the left (A, B) and one window on the right side (C):
---------
| A |   |
|---| C |
| B |   |
---------

When I add a new window (D), it appears on the right side. Window C goes to the upper left:

---------
| C |   |
|---|   |
| A | D |
|---|   |
| B |   |
---------

I would like to change this. D should appear on the upper left (with focus), and C should remain on the right:

---------
| D |   |
|---|   |
| A | C |
|---|   |
| B |   |
---------

Is it somehow possible to achieve this?

compiling awesome on red hat 6

Greetings,

I have been using awesome on Arch for a while and now trying to compile
it for a red hat 6 system. After installing all the dependencies (cairo,
etc), I am getting the following when I make awesome (version 3.5.5):

$: cd awesome-3.5.5
$: make

   :
   :

   CMakeFiles/awesome.dir/dbus.c.o: In function `luaA_rawlen':
   /home/esquires3/repos/software/awesome/awesome-3.5.5/luaa.h:99: undefined reference to `lua_rawlen'

There are quite a few other similar undefined reference errors in the
output. Lua is installed in /usr/local.

Can you all assist me with getting awesome compiled? 

Eric

Re: How to skip taglist for a selected application

Hi, zhtlancer. Thank you for the quick reply.

I already heave this set in conkyrc:

[code]
own_window yes
own_window_type desktop
own_window_hints below,skip_taskbar,skip_pager
[/code]

Those hints are properly there, as xprop says:

[stdout]
_NET_WM_STATE(ATOM) = _NET_WM_STATE_SKIP_TASKBAR, _NET_WM_STATE_BELOW
_NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE(ATOM) = _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DESKTOP
[/stdout]

The taglist square is still there with those settings.

Is there any other place I can look fot such setting?

Best,

Deny Dias.

How to skip taglist for a selected application

Hi all! New here, new to awesome.

I'm running awesome 3.5.2.

I'm looking for a way so awesome ignores an application in the taglist so that small square disappear for the
tag where the app is in.

I have this in awful.rules for that application (Conky):

[code]
    { rule = { class = "Conky" },
      properties = { tag = tags[1][6],
                     floating = true,
                     ontop = false,
                     focusable = false,
                     skip_taskbar = true } },
[/code]

It skip taskbar as expected, but the taglist indicator still appears. I want to get rid of it. How can I do that?

I carefully read awesome's wiki and luadocs, Arch's wiki for awesome and searched a lot about awesome
configuration. I also read the source code for /usr/share/awesome/lib/awful/widget/taglist.lua and
/usr/share/awesome/lib/awful/rules.lua to search for some hidden property, but no luck at it.

The closest I get for this was: http://www.mail-archive.com/awesome%40naquadah.org/msg04764.html

Although the reply says it might be fixed, API documentation doesn't have an entry for that nor it explain
how to do it.

Thank you very much in advance,

Deny Dias.

show a wibox with a timeout

Hi,

I want to display a wibox (with my taglist) just for 2 or 3 seconds when 
the current desktop change.
I have already a working solution but I would like to know if there is 
another way to do it.

here is the function that I use:

function taglist_wibox_show_hide(box)
    mytimer = timer({ timeout = 0 })
    mytimer:connect_signal("timeout", function ()
                                         print("show")
                                         box.visible=true
                                         mytimer:stop()
                                      end
                           )
    mytimer:start()
    mytimer1 = timer({ timeout = 2 })
    mytimer1:connect_signal("timeout", function ()
                                           print("hide")
                                           box.visible=false
                                           mytimer1:stop()
                                       end
                            )
    mytimer1:start()
end

Any ideas ?
