High consume CPU

Hello, 

My notebook has an old configuration, CPU : Intel Core 2 duo(T550)  <at>  1.66GHz
and Memory: 2GB, but the awesome this consuming 28% of CPU. 

I'm using the Dust theme at this time, but same with theme default this
consumption is close to 28% of CPU.

Does anyone have any idea why this consumption?

Thanks

Re: Systray doesn't clean before icon update

Hi LLoyd, thank you to answer. It's not the same screenshot twice actually, there is a small difference in the icon on left most side in the top-right corner. But I reframe the images to highlight the error.

So as I said, after a fresh awesome start the nm-applet icon looks clear :

But after a deconnection & reconnection, icons stacked and are weird... 

Any idea how can I fix this ? Thanks.
Alexis

Systray doesn't clean before icon update

Hi all,

I use transparancy on my wibox and on my sytray as you can see on the screenshots. I also use nm-applet to display the network status in the systray. But I encounter a small issue with the icons drawn in the systray. When icon updates, the previous one is not erase. So with a fresh start of awesome, the icon looks beautiful and clear as shown in the first screenshot, but after, when wireless disconnect, then try reconnect, all the icons stack on each other and so the result is weird, and I can't see the difference between "Wifi connected" and "Wifi disconnected"...

Is there anybody which already encounter this problem and managed to solve it ? Else, any idea where I can investigate ?

Thanks,
Alexis

upgrade packages using a mouse click

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to change my awesome setup so that clicking on an icon will spawn a terminal (terminator) with the command "apt-get dist-upgrade" . I tried many things to get a nice widget tracking packages updates, but I'm stuck here.

Basically, I have a textbox showing the amount of updates (and hovering it displays packages to update) after parsing the output of "apt-show-versions -u -b", so that's nice.

I also have an imagebox, which spawns a terminal when I click it. I'd like to spawn a terminal and start the "apt-get dist-upgrade" command in this spawned terminal foreground (I already made the right changes in /etc/sudoers to use apt-get without sudo) so that I can watch the update process. After the command has returned, the temrinal should still be opened.
The "-e" option doesn't seem to be the answer.

Here is the imagebox snippet:

  apticon = wibox.widget.imagebox()
  apticon:set_image(beautiful.widget_apt)
  apticon:buttons(awful.util.table.join(
  awful.button({ }, 1, function () awful.util.spawn(terminal,false) end)))

where terminal, as you might have guessed, refers to my terminal name (terminator) :)

Thanks in advance !

Lock mouse while typing

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a solution to block the motion of the mouse while i'm 
typing.

I would like to keep the mouse's pointer in the active window even if i 
move it by accident.

Is there any way to do it in the awesome configuration file ?

Regards,

SIMON Pierre-Alain

Window Manager

Hello,

My name is Noah I am 14 years old and I am attempting to write a window manager in C++. I have come across a bug very early on: I cannot seem to get any kind of keyboard and mouse input being registered in the manager.

I was wondering if you could take a look at my source code (seeing as you have a lot of experience) and maybe point out what I am doing wrong. I am emailing you because 1. the Internet (for once) is not helping me at all and 2. I am great admirer of awesomeWM and want to create something similar.

Thanks :)

Interactive shell in textbox.

Hi, just started with Awesome 3.4.13-1 ( in Debian ), and Lua. I've put a text widget text box on my system-bar next to 'mytextclock'. How can I run an interactive shell (bash) in this textbox? I would like to keep the shell one line in height. Any thoughts appreciated - thanks, Alex.

the documentation?

Thanks.

awesome does not start after login

Hi, guys! I decided to try awesome on openSUSE, so I installed it from 
the official repositories.
It worked flawlessly, but, there's the only issue, - it's a really old 
version, something like 3.4.15. So, I uninstalled it, grabbed a .rpm for 
an older version of opensuse (why in the world there's a later version 
of awesome for an older openSUSE??? ) and installed it instead; 
according to zypper it was ok, like, an upgrade.
After this operation there were no way awesome would start. I usually 
run it from lightDM, but it would give me a black screen and return to 
login. Is there a way to repair it? I tried to cleanse it in every way, 
by renaming my ~/.config/awesome folder, but there is still nothing to do.

What could I do to remedy?

P.S. I also tried to compile it from sources, but it gives me errors by 
saying that several dependencies are missing. The issue consists in the 
fact that I already have those dependencies, but under another name 
(like, cairo->libcairo0, or things like that). Is there a way to make it 
compile w/out errors?

Thank you very much for your help.
