XMonad.Hooks.EwmhDesktops

Contents

Description

Makes xmonad use the EWMH hints to tell panel applications about its workspaces and the windows therein. It also allows the user to interact with xmonad by clicking on panels and window lists.

Synopsis

Usage

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

 import XMonad
 import XMonad.Hooks.EwmhDesktops

 main = xmonad $ ewmh defaultConfig{ handleEventHook =
            handleEventHook defaultConfig <+> fullscreenEventHook }

ewmh :: XConfig a -> XConfig aSource

Add EWMH functionality to the given config. See above for an example.

ewmhDesktopsStartup :: X ()Source

Initializes EwmhDesktops and advertises EWMH support to the X server

ewmhDesktopsLogHook :: X ()Source

Notifies pagers and window lists, such as those in the gnome-panel of the current state of workspaces and windows.

ewmhDesktopsLogHookCustom :: ([WindowSpace] -> [WindowSpace]) -> X ()Source

Generalized version of ewmhDesktopsLogHook that allows an arbitrary user-specified function to transform the workspace list (post-sorting)

ewmhDesktopsEventHook :: Event -> X AllSource

Intercepts messages from pagers and similar applications and reacts on them. Currently supports:

  • _NET_CURRENT_DESKTOP (switching desktops)
  • _NET_WM_DESKTOP (move windows to other desktops)
  • _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW (activate another window, changing workspace if needed)

ewmhDesktopsEventHookCustom :: ([WindowSpace] -> [WindowSpace]) -> Event -> X AllSource

Generalized version of ewmhDesktopsEventHook that allows an arbitrary user-specified function to transform the workspace list (post-sorting)

fullscreenEventHook :: Event -> X AllSource

An event hook to handle applications that wish to fullscreen using the _NET_WM_STATE protocol. This includes users of the gtk_window_fullscreen() function, such as Totem, Evince and OpenOffice.org.

Note this is not included in ewmh.
