XMonad.Actions.LinkWorkspaces

Contents

Description

Provides bindings to add and delete links between workspaces. It is aimed at providing useful links between workspaces in a multihead setup. Linked workspaces are view at the same time.

Synopsis

Usage

You can use this module with the following in your ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs file:

import XMonad.Actions.LinkWorkspaces

and add a function to print messages like

message_command (S screen) = " dzen2 -p 1 -w 300 -xs " ++ show (screen + 1)
message_color_func c1 c2 msg = dzenColor c1 c2 msg
message screen c1 c2 msg = spawn $ "echo '" ++ (message_color_func c1 c2 msg) ++ "' | " ++ message_command screen

alternatively you can use the noMessages function as the argument

Then add keybindings like the following:

,((modm, xK_p), toggleLinkWorkspaces message)
,((modm .|. shiftMask, xK_p), removeAllMatchings message)
  [ ((modm .|. m, k), a i)
      | (a, m) <- [(switchWS (\y -> windows $ view y) message, 0),(switchWS (\x -> windows $ shift x . view x) message, shiftMask)]
      , (i, k) <- zip (XMonad.workspaces conf) [xK_1 .. xK_9]]

For detailed instructions on editing your key bindings, see XMonad.Doc.Extending.

removeAllMatchings :: MessageConfig -> X () Source #

Remove all maps between workspaces

unMatch :: WorkspaceId -> X () Source #

remove all matching regarding a given workspace

toggleLinkWorkspaces :: MessageConfig -> X () Source #

Toggle the currently displayed workspaces as matching. Starting from the one with focus | a linked list of workspaces is created that will later be iterated by switchToMatching.
