XMonad.Actions.Workscreen

Contents

Description

A workscreen permits to display a set of workspaces on several screens. In xinerama mode, when a workscreen is viewed, workspaces associated to all screens are visible.

The first workspace of a workscreen is displayed on first screen, second on second screen, etc. Workspace position can be easily changed. If the current workscreen is called again, workspaces are shifted.

This also permits to see all workspaces of a workscreen even if just one screen is present, and to move windows from workspace to workscreen.

Synopsis

Usage

You can use this module with the following in your ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs:

 import XMonad.Actions.Workscreen
 myWorkspaces = let myOldWorkspaces = ["adm","work","mail"]
                in Workscreen.expandWorkspace 2 myOldWorkspaces
 myStartupHook = do Workscreen.configWorkscreen (Workscreen.fromWorkspace 2 myWorkspaces)
                    return ()

Then, replace normal workspace view and shift keybinding:

 [((m .|. modm, k), f i)
      | (i, k) <- zip [0..] [1..12]
      , (f, m) <- [(Workscreen.viewWorkscreen, 0), (Workscreen.shiftToWorkscreen, shiftMask)]]

For detailed instructions on editing your key bindings, see XMonad.Doc.Extending.

configWorkscreen :: [Workscreen] -> X ()Source

Initial configuration of workscreens

viewWorkscreen :: WorkscreenId -> X ()Source

View workscreen of index WorkscreenId. If current workscreen is asked workscreen, workscreen's workspaces are shifted.

shiftToWorkscreen :: WorkscreenId -> X ()Source

Shift a window on the first workspace of workscreen WorkscreenId.

fromWorkspace :: Int -> [WorkspaceId] -> [Workscreen]Source

Create workscreen list from workspace list. Group workspaces to packets of screens number size.

expandWorkspace :: Int -> [WorkspaceId] -> [WorkspaceId]Source

Helper to group workspaces. Multiply workspace by screens number.
