Re: Sawfish resolution-changed-hook patch

If the applied patch works, then it's by fortuity, some actions 
undocumented in RandR spec. I'll work on this, suspending the keyboard
hack. I don't think it will take a month.

Details: updating is split into two, code around configure-notify-hook
and the new one. Each doesn't take care of each other. Internally
stored information needs more treatment.

And there's redundancy, which may be ok though, in library detection
in configure.in, Makefile.in, and Makedefs.in. Chris, can you compare
the applied patch to the edit dc64cb?

Best regards,
Teika (Teika kazura)

[merge request] Librep: better message on process exec failure.

Please merge my librep branch. Librep now emits better message on
process execution failure.

I was flooded by tons of messages:
 child subprocess can't exec: No such file or directory
But it didn't give me any clue. ;/ With this patch, I'm happy.

It includes minor doc improvements as usual.

Error running Sawfish-ui on Ubuntu

Hi all,

I used to love Sawfish but lost track of it over the years.  I've tried
installing and running Sawfish on my Ubuntu 10.04 system (x86, upgraded
8.04 -> 8.10 -> 9.04 -> 9.10 -> 10.04 - this is *not* a fresh 10.04
system) but I'm hitting a bit of a snag with rep.

I've installed the following from the Ubuntu repo's:
sawfish			1:1.3.5.2-1ubuntu1
sawfish-data		1:1.3.5.2-1ubuntu1
sawfish-dbg		1:1.3.5.2-1ubuntu1
sawfish-lisp-source	1:1.3.5.2-1ubuntu1
sawfish-merlin-ugliness	1.3.1-1
sawfish-pager		0.6a-3
sawfish-themes		0.12
librep9			0.90.2-1
rep-gtk			1:0.90.0-2

Rather than jumping straight into Sawfish as a full-on window manager
for my main system, I've been trying to play with it in a Xephyr X
session.

Running Xephyr is OK.
Running xterm in the Xephyr session is OK.
Starting sawfish from said xterm session is OK and indeed the xterm
gets some nice window decorations.
Running sawfish-ui from the xterm within the Xephyr session, however,
presents me with the following error:
  exec: 8: rep: not found

… Ubuntu doesn't support Sawfish and therefore the packages are totally outdated;
current versions are:

librep 0.90.5 (0.90.6 in HEAD)
rep-gtk 0.90.2 (0.90.3 in HEAD)
sawfish 1.6.2 (1.6.3 in HEAD)
sawfish-pager 0.7.3 (0.7.4 in HEAD)

The problem is pretty simple: the installed versions of rep-gtk and sawfish are
incompatible. rep-gtk 0.90.0 requires atleast Sawfish 1.5.2, so this is not really
surprising me, though ugly for users like you, who may think, it's our fault.

So you may start with trying our recent (and compatible) releases.

I know, it sucks.

I used to love Sawfish's flexibility - after a brief encounter with KDE
and Gnome in Mandrake 7+ I settled with Sawfish and kept it going for
several years, eventually loosing touch with it in ~2003 when I
installed Debian.  Recent conversation on my local LUG
(www.dcglug.org.uk) about alternative Window Managers has brought back
some fond memories and renewed interest (on my part).

[neil <at> s-z.org: Patch workaround for Debian Bug#406673]

I received the following proposed patch for Debian bug#406673

 "sawfish: error message with java window"

 I just realized that a mysterious "beep" that I was hearing every
 time I move to a workspace running Aladin (a non-debian java
 application:
  http://aladin.u-strasbg.fr/java/nph-aladin.pl?frame=downloading) was
 sawfish-related.
 In each "beep" I receive the following error message in 
 .xsession-error:

 Bad argument: #<subr x-atom-name>, 18446744072353249216, 1

I'd be glad if someone in the list could give it a test, I've been
kind of busy lately and won't be able to for a while.

ubuntu 10.04 success


Hi everybody,

a quick note to mention that latest git version of sawfish (and friends
librep, rep-gtk) is working.

And the xrandr extension works too. After enabling autorotation then
putting the X61t into tablet mode the current window gets resized to fit
into the screen.

To enable sawfish as my window manager under ubunto:

Build sawfish and friends using dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
installed, then replaced window manager using gedit, so that both of the
following variables point to /usr/bin/sawfish

	/apps/desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/current
	/apps/desktop/gnome/applications/window_manager/default
