select question

Hello.  When using xedit, I find that, with the mouse, I can select 
text, and then, elsewhere, paste it with the middle mouse button.  What 
are the keyboard equivalents of these actions?

shift+insert often works for pasting. Selecting is a program-specific
action, sadly enough.

Well you still have standards. Well before C-C, C-V and C-X, the 'standard'
set for copying, pasting and cutting are Ctrl+insert and Shift+insert (I can
never recall the 'cut' for this one).
These standards are even respected by Microsoft.

Anyway, if shift+insert works, ctrl+insert should be there too.

Show name of workspace

Hi,

I am a happy beginner user of the ion2 window manager. Thank's for the
great work.
I couldn't found on google an answer to the question if it is possible
to show the name of the current workspace somewhere (I only found a
script for Ion3).

I often have multiple workspaces associated with different domains e.g.
"private", "programming project A", "programming project B", "support
customer A" etc.

When I am browsing through them I often can't figure out immeditaly
which domain I am currently seeing, because some domains have the same
programs running. Is there a way to show the name, or is it possible
that they have different colors?

Is there a way to rename the strings that's shown on the tabs of the
programs?
Is there a way to rename the workspace?

Thanks! Works great.

My solution to this is a modified version of statusbar_workspace.lua that
shows workspace names instead of numbers.

It is attached (because it is small).  I definitely found I got a lot more
productive after I had it.

Thanks.
But I don't have a statusbar.
Isn't this a feature of Ion3?

I am currently using Ion 2.

switchto in latest ion snapshot

Hello and thanks for the current ion development.

I just switched to the recent ion snapshot (20061029) and ion doesn't appear 
to be respecting my switchto=false setting in ioncore.set {..}

Have I missed a change? Or is this just a bug?

Thanks.

go_frame_or_desk in ion-3ds-20061029


This gets the 'go_frame_or_desk' script from the scripts collection
working under the latest 2006-10-29 snapshot, but the two uses of
'farthest()' need to be commented out because I can find no way to get a
reference to the workspace switched to by 'switch_prev' or
'switch_next'. Using ioncore.defer() doesn't help.

How can I run code after the screen switch, or otherwise get a reference
to the new workspace?

WIonWS.goto_dir is Missing In Action. :)

Hi all,

   I'm running debian unstable and I've been using ion3 for a few
months. I've been updating recently and discovered that I had switched
to ion 3ds-20061029 which does not behave exactly as it used to. My
main problems are due to the fact that WIonWS and WFloatWS and the
corresponding modules are gone. In the Changelog, it is said "Renamed
mod_ionws as mod_tiling and WIonWS as WTiling" but some functions seem
to have completely disappear in the renaming. In particular the former
WIonWS.goto_dir function that was particularly convenient to navigate
through frames in WIonWS workspaces. I've grepped through the .so of
ion3 without success. Does anyone know where has this function gone or
how to emulate something similar ? If not is there any hope that
similar function will ever come back in the next versions ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers,

     Arnaud
