Change the position where a new window add in.

When I'm in tile, or fair etc layout, A new windows will be added into from top_left.
I want to keep tile layout left window has max height. So I want to change the position where 
a new window add in. Is there a way to change this ? like change into top_right, or bottom_right ?

Feeding output to naughty

Is there an easy way or perhaps a website that can be suggested where I can pipe output from a command to awesome and bind it to a keypress. For instance I want to bind mod+i to "mpc current" and have naughty display the output from the command. Thanks.

Re: Feeding output to naughty

I would use the keyboard shortcut bindings from rc.lua to call sexec("mpc current") as well as naughty.notify. Or you could run an external script with awesome-client.

Cheers!

https://awesome.naquadah.org/wiki/Naughty#Feeding_Naughty

e.g:

$ echo "naughty.notify({text = '$(mpc current)'})" | awesome-client

`sexec` won't capture the output, would it? You will have to use Lua's
`io.popen` sort of thing, no?

Right, didn't understand he wanted its output. Yes, io.popen will probably do the trick :-).

Awesome as a wayland compositor

Hi,

It seems the graphics infrastructure in Linux moves slowly to Wayland. I like
Awesome and want to stay with Awesome when Wayland will be here.

IIUC, Awesome should implement Wayland compositor functionality to be able to
use it with Wayland infrastructure. Am I right? Is there any plans?

This is just as likely as awesome being ported to MS Windows[1]. Technically, it
should be about equally difficult (= impossible).

Awesome is a X11 window manager. Without X11, there is no place for a X11 window
manager.

[1]: No I'm not talking about mingw and a X server running on windows. I mean
awesome managing real windows on windows.

In case anyone's wondering there actually is something attempting to get close to that, at least in spirit: http://windawesome.codeplex.com/
