How to exec-or-jumpto in openbox?

Hi,

For example, the following keybinding in fluxbox, i.e.,
```
    Mod4 e :If {Some Matches (emacs)} {NextWindow (emacs)} {Exec emacs}
```
will cycle through Emacs windows, if they are open; and will open one, if none is open.

How to do this in openbox?
I have noticed the action of "if" in [1], but cannot manage to get it works.

Best,
M.W.

Modal Windows stack underneath

Hi,

I'm currently facing a strange behavior with modal windows. I work with QT 4.8 and in my application I sometimes need to show multiple modal window that inherit from a QDialog. I've an internal manager that stack them according to their priority.

I worked a long time with Mutter and all work perfectly but recently I changed to Openbox. Since I noticed that sometimes (not each time) when multiple modal window are poping then I cannot control wich window will get the focus, and calling raise() on it do nothing.

My code didn't change, so I was wondering if it's possible to configure Openbox to behave that way.


Thank you,

Re: question on key-bindings

Hi Ranjan,

do you use systemd? If so, please check the  HandlePowerKey option of
/etc/systemd/logind.conf

Best regards

question on key-bindings

Hi,

I have a simple question on the binding of keys for my laptop.

I would like to hibernate my machine by just a quick tap of the power button (sort of like what the Gnome
desktop of CentOS allows). How do I do this?

Many thanks and best wishes,
Ranjan

is it possible to query openbox configuration

Hello,
Is it possible to query the actual current openbox configuration, as opposed to querying config files?
Something like "xrdb -query" for openbox?

Firefox add-on popups

This may or may not be openbox related. I've got a few firefox add-ons that
add a button to the nav bar. The idea is you click on this button to bring
up a popup window to set preferences or manage some other aspect of the
add-on. Ublock origin is an example. But I don't get the popup; I click on
the button and nothing happens. I suspect that's because I'm not running a
desktop, just an X server and openbox. Firefox may be depending on some
gnome misfeature that I don't have. So probably not openbox related, but I
wonder if anyone here knows why this is happening and how to fix it.

Openbox context menu not working

I have been using Openbox for years with Fedora. I upgraded from
Fedora 21 -> Fedora 23 late last year, and since then I have an odd
problem: the Openbox menu stops working some hours or days after
reboot. By "Openbox menu" I mean the menu that appears when I
right-click on some place where there is no window. When this happens,
the scroll wheel stops doing its usual thing which is to switch
workspaces. Alt-Tab still works. Also the mouse works as normal within
a window.

I tried "openbox --restart" (which in the past fixed minor issues for
me) but it has no effect with this particular issue.

I am using Openbox v. 3.6.1.

Any ideas?

Cannot use keyboard sometimes after changing desktops

I usually change between desktops quite rapidly and often it happens
that after changing I cannot use the keyboard to interact with windows.
Nothing happens to the windows when pressing keys. The problem goes away
after changing to some specific desktop. Usually I simply cycle through
all four and then I can write again. Why does this happen? How can this
be prevented from happening?

details:
computer: HP Pavilion dv7-6025
operating system: Parabola GNU+Linux-libre
video driver: radeon
X.Org X Server 1.18.2
OpenBox 3.6.1

Right mouse press delay

Hi, All.

I make the settings following in the rc.xml, mouse section:

    <context name="Maximize">
      <mousebind action="Press" button="Left">
        <action name="ToggleMaximizeVert"/>
      </mousebind>
      <mousebind action="Press" button="Middle">
        <action name="ToggleMaximizeFull"/>
      </mousebind>
      <mousebind action="Press" button="Right">
        <action name="ToggleMaximizeHorz"/>
      </mousebind>
    </context>

Left and middle buttons works as expected: the action is taken
immediately by pressing a button. But if I press (and hold) the right
button, the action is performed after the 1 second delay or after button
is released.

Is this a bug or a feature?
Is configurable this strange delay?
If it is hardcoded, what is its purpose and why just the right button?

NextWindow with custom final action

Hi, All

In the NextWindow (PreviousWindow) dialog is there a way to specify
custom final action in addition or instead of Activate?  For example
Activate and Move to the current desktop.
Or may be exist another method to create dialog with tha same keybord
logic (as Alt-Tab-Tab-Tab...) and with custom final action?
