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...

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

That looks great --

One other question: does the user have to log out and
log back in to see the changes, or will the changes
be visible after "re-configuring" openbox in the
current session?

I ask because I hit "ReConfigure Openbox" on the menu
and there's been no change; the menu still appears.

---

P.S. A search brings up a similar thread with XML example:

   <keybind key="A-Tab">
       <action name="NextWindow">
         <dialog>none</dialog>
       </action>
     </keybind>
     <keybind key="A-S-Tab">
       <action name="PreviousWindow">
         <dialog>none</dialog>
       </action>
     </keybind>

The solution appears to be:
         <dialog>none</dialog>

...applied to both "A-Tab" and "A-S-Tab" keybindings.

put client-list-combined-menu in alphabetical order

Here is a patch I have found useful. It puts the client list menu in
alphabetical order. To finish this, you would have to make it configurable,
and also do the non-combined menu.

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

Hi -

I realized that there's no need (in my setup)
for the application-switcher dialog box that
pops up when you press Alt-Tab.

The only setting that I see in rc.xml governs
the desktop pager. It would be great if there
was something similar for the application-switching
"Focus" dialog box as well.

Is there a way to disable that dialog -- while
keeping the keyboard shortcut's functionality
and the "window focus outline" visual cue that you
see when hitting Alt-Tab?

Thanks for your ideas.

mikabox

Hi, All

  There is "mikachu/openbox.git" beside the oficial "dana/openbox.git"
repository.
  - Is there somewhere some text about this project?
  - Is it true that mikabox is a superset of the official Dana's openbox?
  - Are there somewhere patches for individual mikabox functions? (For
example, separate patchset to the official openbox that provide edge
functions)
  - Is it OK to discuss mikabos here?

Quake-like-console configuration: problem with ForEach action

Hello!

I installed Openbox for the first time a few days ago. I was really
impressed how well a configuration process went. But in the end I had
a following problem.

I tried to configure a terminal window to act as something that was
somewhere called quake-like-console (i.e. an "adhoc" terminal that
appears after hitting some key above all windows and is available on
all desktops). I have already found some solution using external bash
script, but I think that following implementation would be more
elegant and maybe even more practical.

My idea is to start a terminal (urxvt in my case) with some special
title (like "quake_console"). Then create some rules for it:

  <application name="urxvt" class="URxvt" title="quake_console">
    <decor>no</decor>
    <position force="yes">
      <x>right</x>
      <y>0</y>
    </position>

    <size>
      <width>100%</width>
      <height>40%</height>
    </size>

    <focus>yes</focus>
    <desktop>all</desktop>
    <layer>above</layer>
    <iconic>no</iconic>
    <skip_pager>yes</skip_pager>
    <skip_taskbar>yes</skip_taskbar>
    <fullscreen>no</fullscreen>
    <maximized>no</maximized>
  </application>

This works.

Now I need a key binding that would handle hiding and displaying of
the terminal. But the following snippet does not work:

  <keybind key="W-w">
    <!-- Find the terminal. -->
    <action name="ForEach">
      <title>quake_console</title>
      <then>
        <!-- Is it displayed? -->
        <action name="If">
          <desktop>current</desktop>
          <then>
            <!-- Hide it. -->
            <action name="SendToDesktop">
              <to>10</to>
              <wrap>no</wrap>
              <follow>no</follow>
            </action>
          </then>
          <else>
            <!-- Show it. -->
            <action name="SendToDesktop">
              <to>current</to>
              <wrap>no</wrap>
              <follow>no</follow>
            </action>
          </else>
        </action>
      </then>
    </action>
  </keybind>

And I do not understand where is a problem. I did not find any way how
to debug these rules. Documentation is not very helpful
(http://openbox.org/wiki/Help:Actions#If). In the doc is introduces a
"basic structure" of the If action, where is "query" element, but in
the examples below is no such element used, which puzzles me even
more.

I made some simpler tests and it looks like that "title" condition is
not working.

Can somebody give me a hint why the second snippet does not work please?

Best regards
Martin Jiřička
