You may use awful.client.property.set and awful.client.property.get

The default config does not cause any problems with Thunderbird for
me. I have uploaded my regular config to pastebin.com [1]. Maybe you
will be able to spot the code that might cause the problem or provide
me with some debugging pointers, because to be honest I have no idea
what Thunderbird does to make Awesome behave like that.

New to Awesome, I have a few questions

Hello,


I am new to AwesomeWM and so far I am enjoying it.  I have a few questions though.

You can minimize a window by hitting mod+n, how do I then get the window back without having to click on it in the status bar?

How do I get the media keys working with Amarok?  When I ran gnome I used a gnome mulimedia keys script, any way to fake gnome multimedia keys or something like that?

How do I turn off the little beep sound when I do things like click check boxes and such?

Thanks a ton guys,

You can bind multimedia keys to some action in awesome. I have bound the multimedia keys to mpd. Some code will make it clear:

My laptop would beep when I would use auto complete in a shell. This fixed it:

in .xinitrc add:
xset b off

Mouse cursor changes when running scripts

Hello,



I have the following key binding in my rc.lua:

awful.key({ }, "Print", function () awful.util.spawn("scrot '%Y-%m-%d-%H.%M.png' -e 'mv $f /mnt/Dados2/Imagens/Screenshots/ 2> /dev/null'") end),


However, when I press Printscreen, the mouse cursor turns into that little
clock (not sure what's the correct terminology here) and stays like that for 
a long time. Sometimes it goes back to normal quickly, but there are times
it stays like that for minutes. It seems it's something I do that reverts it, but
I am unsure what.

Is that behavior normal? Is there a way to have it not happen?

This will stop the beeping in X, but won't help in VTs (e.g. 
CTRL+ALT+F1). To prevent beeping completely you should add the following 
line to your ~/.inputrc (or to /etc/inputrc for all users)
set bell-style none

Can't seem to load .xinitrc

I'm having some issues getting my system to load the .xinitrc
file...whenever I log in, nothing is loaded from it.  I'm not sure what's
going on, but maybe somebody else has experienced this and can give me
some help.  Here's my .xinitrc:

#!/usr/bin/bash

exec awesome

#open network manager
nm-applet &
#compositing
cb-compmgr --xcompmgr &
#background
nitrogen --restore &

Thanks,
Noah

This command replaces the running script with Awesome.  After this call, no
other commands will run.

If you put it last, it should work.

Cheers,
Adam.

Re: Can't seem to load .xinitrc

Nothing.  I even did a cold reboot.  It seems as if .xinitrc isn't actally
being executed on startup, because 'sh .xinitrc' gets everything running
great.  FYI, I'm running Debian Squeeze (well, technically Crunchbang
Statler).

(Sorry for sending this to you twice, had to get this reply to the list I
think...sorry, I'm fairly new to mailing lists)

Might depend on your system config, I've never fully understood the difference
between ~/.xinitrc, ~/.xsession, /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc, etc. mostly because
each window manager's init script seems to treat the files differently.

I'm not running XDM (just "startx" from the command line) and my ~/.xinitrc
works fine.  If it's not working for you you'll probably need to track down
where exactly Awesome is being loaded from and look there for details.  I know
the default Awesome initscripts (at least on my distro) don't run ~/.xsession
at startup (where I think you normally put your startup commands) so I had to
write my own ~/.xinitrc which ran the .xsession file then the system-wide
Awesome one (/etc/X11/Sessions/awesome for me.)

Sounds painful ;-)
