That's.... quite a 'solution' and quite a claim. [...] >> When I attach or detach an external screen (using xrandr) it seems >> Awesome automatically restarts. >> Is there any way to avoid this? Not with awesome 3.5.9, no. Sorry. However, for the next major release we are working on changing this. This requires quite some changes, because all the code right now assumes that all screens are already known when the config file is loaded and doesn't change later. : https://github.com/awesomeWM/awesome/pull/672 >> During a regular working day I happen to >> connect/disconnect my screen easily 3 to 5 times.

[...] If you have some "frequent patter" for this, the only suggestion that I have is to configure some more of these settings in your config. You can e.g. use awful.tag.setmwfact(0.3, tags) in your rc.lua to configure a "default" mwfact for the third tag. Cheers, Uli -- Q: Because it reverses the logical flow of conversation.
