Big Screen

Description:

Feeling insufficient?
If you install this, your Pen... errrr... Screen will become very large.


It sort of implements the NETWM Large Desktop concept as exists in eg. fvwm.

The active screen edges trigger a shift of "normal" windows, similar to "xrandr --panning", but the desktop etc. stay in place (and the "size" is not limited by the GPU when compositing)

The shift is by default 50% of the smallest screen width/height, ie. eg. the upper half becomes the lower half and the lower half drops out of the screen. This can easily be changed in the script source.

It's also different from the stacked virtual desktops as implemented in KWin in that you can make windows randomly large and shift the viewport (windows lap over to the next "notvirtualdesktop")

--- TODO:
- handle activities
- make a config GUI?

--- Comments:
"I installed this and my P... Screen grew HUUGE and now I can please all the gir... windows and no longer feel insufficient!"

--- Disclaimer:
Any other growth is not guaranteed.
Other things might actually shrink - and I deny responsibility for such!

Changelog:

1.3
-----
* added option to align to the panning grid (affects window activation)

1.2
----
* only move currentTab (ie. a tabgroup once instead of n times)

1.1
------------
* added shortcuts
* added config GUI (script needs to be reloaded to update config!)
* allow to only use vertical or horizontal edges or neither

Cool script! But it should be called "Enlarge Your Screen" instead ;-)

 How those this even work?

One more thing: how this works? I used to think it basicly moves windows, but this appears to be more complex thing.

No, it actually just moves windows around.
There's some multiscreen handling code and exclusion of windows on other virtual desktops (and yakuake), but that's more or less it.
And it of course centers a window out of sight on activation (by moving all windows accordingly)

 Feature request

I'm wonder if it would be possible to add option to have keybind for scrolling desktop. For instance meta. Screen would be scrolled only if you are holding meta pressed.

No.
It would be possible to add global shortcuts (so that you scroll without the mouse but by pressing a shortcut), but invocation of a modifier would require changes to the KWin core (what's probably not in the cards for KDE SC4)

I think that I would prefer global shortcuts over current behavior. A lot of mouse travel and accidental edge hits are not very helpfull at all.

Thanks.

It seems that configuration button is missing, but shortcuts works well and I disabled electric border in the code. Now I'm happy. :)

How did you install the effect?
If installed with plasmapkg, scripts require a "-t kwinscript") to resolve this correctly. No idea whether i miss some metainfo or plasmapkg simply always requires this.

No idea about GHNS

plasmapkg -t kwinscript -u bigScreen.kwinscript

I used GHNS. And there is no button, as I said.

Ahhh, that's stupid.

Plasma/GHNS will install the script into the "wrong" location (it's detected, but config stuff won't work) unless the metadata say it's "kwinscript", but if they do, kwin won't load the script (expects "javascript") -> kwin bug, it seems (should look for kwinscript, not javascritp)

For proper installation, uninstall the script, download the file and install it as

plasmapkg -u bigScreen.kwinscript -t kwinscript

yup, you are right.

BTW: This script is extreamly useful. I used to like this behavior long time ago, during fvwm days. It's nice to see this in KDE with the help of just few lines of code :-)

 problem

I found one small problem related to the script: it treats window groups like a individual windows, so for instance group of two windows is moved twice by the 50% (100% total) instead of being moved only once by the 50%.

Thanks. Tabbing feature introduces extra cases almost everywhere but I really like it.

 Improvement

Hi, I was getting annoyed by the center on screen and how it was messing my layout so I improved it a bit:

var centerActive = function(client) {
if (!client || client.desktopWindow || client.dock)
return;
if (client.x + client.width < 1 || client.x > workspace.displayWidth ||
client.y + client.height < 1 || client.y > workspace.displayHeight) {
var area = workspace.clientArea(KWin.ScreenArea, workspace.activeScreen, 0);
var dx = area.x + (area.width - client.width)/2 - client.x;
var dy = area.y + (area.height - client.height)/2 - client.y;
var tx = Math.round(dx / shiftX());
var ty = Math.round(dy / shiftY());
translateClients(tx*shiftX(), ty*shiftY());
}
}

Thanks for sharing the idea.
If you look at the code, I altered it a bit, as it's legit to re-use vars and otoh shiftX/Y() should be cached (though it's not a hot path ;-)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
