SKIP_TASKBAR hint and iconic state

Hi, All

  If some window has WM hint SKIP_TASKBAR this window not displayed in
the openbox "tasklists" (as NextWindow dialog and
client-list-combined-menu). This behavior is natural and useful and
conform to the freedesktop.org standard.
  But if the SKIPPED window is iconified (hidden) openbox "taskbars"
show it regardless the SKIP_TASKBAR hint. IMHO this behavior is very
strange and violate the standard.
  For comparison: tint2 and fbpanel do not show SKIPPED windows
regardless of the hidden state.

  Is there the way to prevent showing hidden SKIPPED windows in the
openbox "tasklists"?

Minimal time between clicks to double click

Hello all,

This is not really an OpenBox question/issue but perhaps OpenBox could help.

I have a not so old mouse, 2 years only in tomorrow, and since few weeks it started to double click when it should not.

Is it possible to set up OpenBox to refuse double click if there is not enough time between two clicks? Something like:
<doubleClickMinTime>40</doubleClickMinTime>
which would be coupled with:
<doubleClickTime>200</doubleClickTime>

I'm afraid there is no option in Xorg to do that and as Logitech support refuse to answer to my call (they just sent a message asking to try different systems and useless stuffs like that), I'm asking you to find a workaround...

Best regards,

Mathias

Persisting a desktop terminal window across ToggleShowDesktop with xdotool - interesting failure mode

I'm attempting to arrive at a working config for a transparent terminal window on the desktop. This works well except that it gets hidden with Super-D (ToggleShowDesktop), as one would expect. Having failed to find a way to protect the terminal window from being hidden by this, I moved on to trying to re-map it afterwards with xdotool. I've succeeded - but only partially - and this is where it gets interesting (for me, anyway).

I can indeed successfully find the window with xdotool, I can map it again and everything looks great as long as I do so myself from the shell; when I attempt to have it happen automatically by sticking the same shell script into an Execute action (for the Super-D key binding *or* a different one), I get nada. The script runs, the log shows the window is found and xdotool returns 0, but nothing happens. I've tried adding a sleep up to 15s in case there's a race of some sort and still no luck.

If someone can think of a different way to achieve the desired result I'd be chuffed. With that said, I'm sufficiently curious about why this is happening that I'm now more interested in finding that out than having a transparent desktop terminal ;)

ForEach would not work for this even if I had it (i don't - using wheezy's 3.5.0-7 currently), since the terminal has two windows, of which only the second one needs to be re-mapped, and there doesn't appear to be a way to persist state across loop iterations.

The details of my attempted set-up are as follows:

openbox = 3.5
tilda = 0.09.6

relevant rc.xml snippets:

<application name="tilda-desktop">
      <focus>no</focus>
      <layer>below</layer>
      <desktop>All</desktop>
      <skip_taskbar>yes</skip_taskbar>
      <skip_pager>yes</skip_pager>
      <decor>no</decor>
</application>

    <keybind key="W-d">
      <action name="ToggleShowDesktop"/>
      <action name="Execute">
<command>bash /home/paul/show-tilda-desktop.sh &amp;</command>
 </action>
    </keybind>
    <keybind key="W-A-F5">
<action name="Execute">
<command>bash /home/paul/show-tilda-desktop.sh &amp;</command>
 </action>
    </keybind>

show-tilda-desktop.sh:

#!/bin/bash
 
sleep 15s
echo -e "woke up..." > /tmp/show.log
xdotool search --classname Tilda >> /tmp/show.log
echo -e "running..." >> /tmp/show.log
xdotool search --classname Tilda | awk 'BEGIN { RS = " "; FS = "\n" } {print $2}' | xargs -l1 xdotool windowmap
echo -e "$?" >> /tmp/show.log



Is there something obvious that I'm missing, say about the context Execute runs <command>s?

Cheers,
-p

Hi!

it seems that this function is fully unusable. So it should be?

how to disable gdm lock screen

Hi,

On a debian 'testing' system I'm using openbox with gdm3 as session
manager launching via ~/.xsession with 'exec openbox-session'.

Sometimes when re-opening my laptop lid I find that gdm has locked the
screen (over xscreensaver which had already locked it).

How do I disable gdm's screen locking?

Thanks,

Re: Is there a way to remove the "Focus Dialog" (alt-tab)?

Hi Lucas - 

It works... unfortunately, the next window is
immediately raised (brought to the foreground)
rather than showing the "focus outline" and
allowing the user to A-Tab through
until the right window is found...

gnome eats buttons 1 and 3

I've never had much use for desktop environments, but they've got me using
gnome at work. After struggling with whatever window manager it comes with,
I gave up on it and ran "openbox --replace". This works great, except that
mouse 1 and 3 in the root window (desktop background) don't work. Mouse 1
does nothing, and mouse 3 brings up some gnome menu that's useless to
me. Mouse 2 works fine.

I'm tempted to give up on gnome, but I'd like to at least give it an honest
try. Does anyone know how to get the missing buttons passed through to
openbox?

Re: Is there a way to remove the "Focus Dialog" (alt-tab)?

Interesting:

Wondering if there's a flaw in my syntax somewhere.

  <!-- Keybindings for window switching -->
  <keybind key="A-Tab">
    <action name="NextWindow"/>
      <interactive>no</interactive>
      <dialog>none</dialog>
  </keybind>
  <keybind key="A-S-Tab">
    <action name="PreviousWindow"/>
      <interactive>no</interactive>
      <dialog>none</dialog>
  </keybind>
  <keybind key="C-A-Tab">
    <action name="NextWindow">
      <interactive>no</interactive>
      <dialog>none</dialog>
      <panels>yes</panels><desktop>yes</desktop>
    </action>
  </keybind>

I added 
      <interactive>no</interactive>

to see if there was an effect, then issued 'openbox --reconfigure'
on the commandline (as the login user, of course).

Still no effect...
