Re: Fluxbox: Tips and Tricks
Hello Fluxboxers one & all. I'm in the middle of trying to accomplish two (major IMHO!) things with this WM. Though I'm hopeful they're possible, I'm not quite sure they are after spending a couple of days configuring, tweaking & troubleshooting.
1) Configure the toolbar to be universal (i.e. only display the active window with focus and no other app)
2) Dynamically change the Decor mode between windows when they are in Tab Groups with other windows. I use the Border mode as my defaultDeco as I like this 'headless' style for windows, but would like to change it to TAB mode if & only if windows are grouped together. When I detach a window It should be back in Border mode. Despite my efforts I haven't been to accomplish this.
I've tried many things, in both the apps and keys file but to no avail. The closest thing I got to get the toolbar working I wanted (partially) is a rudimentary line in the apps file like this:
[app] (Name!=[current]) (Label!=[current])
If anyone is interested I can provide other examples of how I tried to get both things to work, or even just to check out a custom style I dubbed 'ostrich2000'. Any help, advice, or comments are greatly appreciated.
