Windows opening on wrong screen

Hi.

I am just giving awesome a try and like it so far. I am on a debian sid
with awesome version 3.4.15-1+b1.

It has one quirk, where I think it is a bug.

When I open a window (say a terminal with Mod4 + Return, but the
application does not matter.), the window should apear on the current
active screen. This works for two of my three screens, but not for the
third. The same happens when I open a window via the right-mouse-click
menu from the desktop, or when I use the top left button to bring up the
menu.

- I select the screen by either moving the mouse into it, or Mod4+Ctrl+j/k.
- I start an application on my right-most screen and the window opens on
my primary/center screen.

I attached a screenshot of my layout, so you get an idea of what I am
talking about. (the black stripes above the left and right screen are
unused, i.e. the monitors end where the menu-bar is)

As mentioned it works for the left and the center screen, but not for
the right one.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a bug? I am not familiar enough
with lua or window managers at all to try my hand at this, but I can
test and try patches.

Regards

Desktop notifications + tag mark

Hi,

Is there any way to make a desktop notification from Google Chrome mark the tag where the browser resides in the same way a just opened application does? On my theme a tag becomes green.
I've tried to find some settings in Google Chrome to make its window blink when a notification is sent, but there appears to be nothing.

Regards,
Eugene

Writing Unit Tests for my config

Hello fellow AwesomeWM users,

I am trying to write some test for my config, just for the heck of it.
i am trying to use busted[1]

But i am having troubles even loading awesome lua code.

```
package.path = package.path .. ';/usr/share/awesome/lib/?.lua;/usr/share/awesome/lib/?/init.lua'
battery = require("cfg.widgets.battery")
describe("a test", function()
  it("runs a test", function() end)
end)
```

Basically it gives me this:

/usr/lib/lua/5.2/busted/core.lua:67: /usr/share/awesome/lib/awful/tag.lua:576: attempt to
index field 'client' (a nil value)

So what do you recomend ? Is it to hard to make awesome load its code
and run the tests to some parts of my config ? Or am I being a complete 
lunatic  if think I can pull this off?

keep gvim from opening on panel bar

Hi all,
I placed my panel bar in the bottom, mostly so that I don't accidentally 
click on another window when I want to click on another tab in firefox. 
However, now I have this obnoxious behavior where gvim will cover the 
panel. How can I prevent gvim from doing that?

Don't let mouse pointer move to another screen

Does anyone know how I can bind mouse pointer to a particular screen, so it won't escape to another screen when I accidentally move the mouse?

Thanks,

Maximize in floating layout always honors size hints

Hi guys,

when in the floating layout I maximize a client (floating or not)
which specifies size hints (say emacs or some terminal emulator) I
still get gaps despite having set size_hints_honor = false (both in
the properties and in the manage sections). The gaps disappear in the
tiling layouts, though.

Is this behavior expected?

Cheers

Systray padding and icon size

Hi guys,

I'm pretty sure the answer is no but I will try anyway: is there any
way to set padding for the systray (both, for the systray as a whole
and separation between icons)? Or to set an upper limit to the icon
size? I mean, without patching the C code.

Cheers

A simple battery status indicator for awesome

I wrote a battery indicator for awesome that doesn't require to deal with lua.rc widgets, which I find quite clunky.

Check it out here, and let me know your thoughts:

can't get to run skype

Hi,

I've run awesome for the first time now. And the problem is that I can't get to run skype. I enter password, press Enter, it shows contact list for a second and then disappears. If run from terminal, it crashes with: "Aborted (core dumped)". I'm running ubuntu 13.10, skype 4.3.0.37-1 and awesome 3.4.15-1. Any thoughts?

Regards,
Yuri
