Robert Massaioli's xmonad.hs ============================ This is my xmonad.hs file that I want to share with everyone, for a full set of its features then I reccomend opening the file itself and having a read. Meant for programmers that use Dvorak keyboards. Instalation ----------- Check out this repository in a convinient location. Then do the following: bash install.bash And then restart xmonad using whatever key you have restart mapped to. Please note that this xmonad.hs was supposed to be used on a dvorak keyboard. Command Guide ------------- XMonad configuration file by Thomas ten Cate <> Edited and extended by Robert Massaioli <> Works on xmonad-0.8, NOT on 0.7 or below; and of course xmonad-contrib needs to be installed as well. This is designed to play nice with a standard Ubuntu Hardy (or greater) installation. It gives you 12 workspaces per screen, available through Alt+F1..F12. You can move windows to a workspace with Win+F1..F12. You can do both at the same time by pressing Win+Alt+F1..F12. It should work well with other \*nix operating systems too. All workspaces except F11 respect panels and docks. F11 is the fullscreen workspace (for mplayer, etc.). F12 is the instant messaging workspace. When you switch screens the mouse will go with you. Pidgin and Skype windows are automatically placed onto the IM workspace. Their contact lists each get a column on the right side of the screen, and all their other windows (chat windows, etc.) go into a grid layout in the remaining space. (This uses a copied and modified version of XMonad.Layout.IM.) Keybindings mostly use the Windows key, but some use Alt to mimic other window managers. In general: Alt is used for navigation, Win for modification. Some of the bindings resemble the XMonad defaults, but most don't. The bindings are set up to be comfortable to use on a dvorak keyboard layout. Before we have the commands lets make some word definitions: window = The window that a program runs in. Workspace = One screen with many windows. Screen = A physical computer screen that you will look at. __Screen management:__ > Ctrl+Alt+Left/Right move focus to previous/next screen > Ctrl+Alt+Down/Up switch current window to current workspace on previous/next screen > Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Left/Right swap all windows in current screen with previous/next screen __Navigation:__ > Alt+Space switch to free workspace > Alt+F1..F12 switch to workspace on the same screen > Alt+Tab focus next window on same screen > Alt+BackSpace focus previous window on the same screen (Meant to be in the CapsLock position but my layout is different) > Win+Z The mouse it moved one sixth of the way in from the top left of the window. __Window management:__ > These commands all keep windows in the same screen. > Alt+Shift+Space move current window to free workspace > Win+F1..F12 move window to workspace > Win+Alt+F1..F12 move window to workspace and switch to that workspace > Win+Up/Down move window up/down on > Win+C close window > Alt+ScrollUp/Down move focused window up/down > Win+M move window to master area > Win+N refresh the current window > Alt+LMB move floating window > Alt+MMB resize floating window > Alt+RMB unfloat floating window > Win+T unfloat floating window __Layout management:__ > Win+Left/Right shrink/expand master area > Win+W/V move more/less windows into master area > Win+Space cycle layouts > Alt+Space Go back to the first layout __Other:__ > Win+Enter start a terminal > Win+R open the dmenu dialogue (you can make it gnomeRun if you wish) > Win+Q restart XMonad > Win+B opens your browser > Win+Shift+Q display Gnome shutdown dialog
