xmonad tab like interface?

Added by colton _ about 5 years ago

Hi, I was just curious if there was a way to have a tab like interface similar to xmonad's ( http://www.haskell.org/wikiupload/d/de/Screen-gattocarlo-tabbed.png ). I would basically like to be able to have multiple chrome windows open, without making the others smaller or manually re-sizing them.

Thanks!

Hi,

I am not really fond of the tabbing idea at all, because it just needs screens pace without real use for me. Nevertheless, doesn't that work with the tasks sublet? It doesn't draw any tabs, but a clickable list of the visible windows.

The main thing I'm looking for, is the fullscreen windows. I've figured out how to switch between floating windows, but I'm not sure how to make them float and take up maximum screen space when they are created. I'll take a look at the tasks sublet for window names, thanks! :)

subtle honors size hints when you set a window to float, so not every application will really take the entire space.

I you really want that, what about this:

tag "float" do
  match    ".*" 
  geometry [ 0, 0, 1024, 768 ]
end

view "float", "float"

Whoops, haven't visited in quite a while (been watching more stargate, doing homework, and playing games then playing with Arch). That works, but how would I switch between windows?

Thanks! =D
