display window geometry (position, size) while resizing or moving

2015-09-29 Thread Robert Fleming
Anyone know of a way to display a window's geometry (e.g. 80x24 characters or 400x300 pixels) while the user is resizing/moving the window? Here's FVWM doing it: http://imgur.com/hu6rFrC twm and Openbox also do it. Thanks, Robert

Ah OK thanks for the quick reply! Could register a function to a signal (awesome 3.4) to get this info rendered into the screen as the mouse is moving around? screen[mouse.screen].geometry=> returned a table with key "x" "y" "width" "height" if c is a client object, then c:geometry() =>

Hi, I have the same issue, so it's unlikely to be an error in your config. Left-Clicking and dragging on any pixel that does not belong to the document or to a button is interpreted as mod4+button1. Best, Szymon On 2015-09-29 11:09, Raphael Plasson wrote: Hello, are there some people here

Hello, are there some people here using inkscape (vector-based drawing program)? There is actually a (small but annoying) problem when used with awesome. Guide lines can be added (typically for attaching objects on it) by dragging them from the rulers. The problem is that this is understood

Yes, I have two screens. I also get the weird maximized behavior from Inkscape but I think that is unrelated as everything else works fine. On Sep 29, 2015 10:24 AM, "Szymon Hennel" wrote: > I have just discovered that the behavior is more complex than just > treating

I have just discovered that the behavior is more complex than just treating any click as mod4+button1 : Inkscape jumps between screens, but not within a single screen. If I reduce my setup to only one screen, there is no problem. Let me explain this better : I have 2 screens, both showing

Weird indeed. I have the problem with the last debian sid version (awesome 3.5.6-1 and inkscape 0.91-5+b2). However, I tried with a new, empty user... no problem. I copied the full .config/awesome from my main user to this test user... no problem I then copied the full .config/inkscape from
