I handle my screen setup by first having: local screens = screen.count()
in my rc.lua. Further down, my setup is then different depending on whether screens == 2 or not. Other option: swap your monitor cables on your PC, that should swap the id of your screens and put your systray in the right place.. Then redo the xrandr layout. Finally, as far as I know, awesome is built based on the assumption that a screen contains tags and a tag contains windows. This hierarchy can probably not be broken without rewriting awesome. Your desire to basically have a tag contain two screens will be problematic. The only solution I see is to define tag pairs in your rc.lua and then write your own function that will run on every tag change and activate the other member of a pair.

Hi everybody, I have a "main" screen, and a smaller "side" screen (actual, physical screens). Everything's working (thanks xrandr!) Only problem is, the systray is on the side screen. This is because Awesome thinks my side screen is "screen 1". I'm deducing this because only it has a systray and I have this in rc.lua: if s == 1 then right_layout:add(wibox.widget.systray()) end Question: How do I tell Awesome to consider my "main" screen as screen 1? Of course I could just change the code above to s == 2, but if I take off my side screen and there's then only one screen again, I'd have no systray. Also, the tag being viewed is independent for the two screens. That's more granularity than I'd like. When I switch "contexts" (tags) I'd like both monitors to reflect that. Am I just looking at implementing that in rc.lua? Thanks for the help and thanks to the devs for such a great WM. -- To unsubscribe, send mail to awesome-unsubscr...@naquadah.org.
