Description:

Note that this requires kde 4.11 for the config interface at least
Tiling script for kwin, featuring:

- A useractionmenu to selectively tile windows
- Three layouts, all mouse-resizable
- One layout with the option to set multiple "master" windows ("M-S-+" to increment, "M-S--" to decrement)
- The option to deactivate tiling per-desktop via keybinding
- A configuration menu for floating windows (by class)
- An option to remove windowborders
- "Animated" resizing and moving
- Optional "useless" gaps

Hotkeys:
("M" here stands for what is usually the windows key, "S" stands for shift)
M-PgUp / M-PgDown: Switch layout for current desktop
M-S-F11: Deactivate tiling on current desktop
M-f: Toggle between tiling and floating for active window
M-S-m: Swap active window with the master window
M-S-+: Increment number of master windows in (default) "HalfLayout"
M-S-h, M-S-j, M-S-k, M-S-l: Move window in corresponding direction

The following have been removed in 1.6.2 as they are already provided by kwin (but set to different keys):

M-u: Toggle window borders
M-h, M-j, M-k, M-l: Switch focus in corresponding direction

Changelog:

* Forgot to enable bladelayout, could lead to crashes/script not working.

* 1.0.1: Fix some issues with panel at the top

* 1.1.0: Add an option to disable borders
This should only be used with FocusUnderMouse, as because of a kwin limitation focus can jump and it's impossible to tell which window has focus

* 1.1.1: Bugfixes and an attempt to adjust to new or removed panels

* 1.1.2: Enable resize "animations" and bugfixes (again including panel struts)

* 1.1.3: Retile on layout switch and keep desktop floating state

* 1.1.4: Bugfixes related to tabgroups and the focus hotkeys

* 1.2: Properly retile when a client resizes (including borders), "animate" moving, improve resizing "animation", add keybinding to toggle window border and bugfixes

* 1.2.1: Remove broken tabgroup handling (tabgroups float for now) and add a possible bugfix for some transparency issues

* 1.3 (unreleased): Readd clients that return (e.g. are unminimized) to their previous tile, bugfixes (including resizing)

* 1.3.1: Tabgroups, add shortcut (Meta+Shift+M) to swap a window with the master, bugfixes

* 1.3.1.1: Fix plasmoids immediately closing

* 1.3.1.2: Fix maximizing, fullscreen and resizing bugs

* 1.3.2: Fix windows not responding and focus-follows-mouse choosing the wrong window, add an option to open windows as master

* 1.3.3: Fix movement losing windows, add workaround for steam update window, fix tiling not working

* 1.4: Add option to disable tiling by default, add per-desktop layout configuration (as a line of text currently), add shortcut to toggle borders on all clients (M-S-U), add shortcuts to resize the master window (M-Alt-{h,j,k,l}), minor bug fixes

* 1.5: Bugfixes (including crashes), optional gaps between windows, respect min/maxsize (unfortunately this could cause crashes under certain circumstances)

* 1.6 (unreleased): Make resizing layout-agnostic, a manual tiling mode, code cleanup, fix tiling when compositing is disabled

* 1.6.1: Respect min/maxSizes, multiple (or zero) master support in halflayout, bugfixes

* 1.6.2: Make respecting min/MaxSizes an option, improve fullscreen behavior, improve configuration UI, remove shortcuts for toggling a border for a single window and switching focus (as they are provided by kwin itself already)

* 1.6.3: Fix crash when number of desktops isn't height * width of desktopgrid, fix default floating list

 How to use this?

 
 by bennypr0fane on: May 6 2014
 
Score 50%

I really don't understand how this works. How can I toggle tiling, how to turn it off, is there a button, a key combo? Can I customize its behavior? All I see on the settings dialog are some names that mean nothing to me and apparently I can remove some of them - again I don't know to what effect. Help, please? I'm on ver. 1.6.1 in Kubuntu 14.04, KDE 4.13.0,
Thanks, Ben

I tried the key combos you are giving here, but barely anything changes on the screen, e.g. M+F11 leaves everything exactly as it is.

There currently is no direct feedback for _disabling_ tiling (a notification or something like it would probably be nice), but it should work.

Just move a window - if it can be freely moved around, tiling is disabled. If _other windows_ move because you are moving that one, tiling is on. You'll know the difference when you see it.

I've improved the settings menu somewhat in current git, and I may make a release in the next week or two.

This list of windows you see is the list of window _classes_ that are excluded from tiling, mostly because they don't work well with tiling. Special windows, like dialogs, are also excluded.

Customization is currently a bit limited (and in 1.6.1 really not explained that well).

Thanks! When you post a new version, will that update be pushed automatically to update on my machine, or do I get a notification, if you make changes to this page here?
Or do I just need to be on the lookout for the new version?

There's an email notification, though I'm not quite sure under what circumstances you'll get it (it may be tied to becoming a "fan" here).

I can give your script a positive review... but it does not work..

plasmapkg -t kwinscript -u Descargas/161151-tiling.kwinscript
plasmapkg(29538)/libplasma Plasma::PackageStructure::metadata: Could not open package file, unsupported archive format: "/home/joseluis/Descargas/161151-tiling.kwinscript" "text/plain"
plasmapkg(29538)/libplasma Plasma::PackageStructure::metadata: Could not open package file: "/home/******/Descargas/161151-tiling.kwinscript"
El complemento Descargas/161151-tiling.kwinscript no está instalado.

nor it works when I try to install from systemsettings > window beahvior > kwin scripts

I mamged to install it right now, your link provides a useless .kwinscript, I downloaded it from your git hub... but I have another problem now... y puts all the windows below the conky window.

In conky editing the attributes does not change a thing, is your script.

 cannot update

I have a problem updating from 1.6.1 to 1.6.3, namely KDe system settings wants to keep the old one. if I manually your script and import the file into system settings, it refuses to do so bcs there is a tiling script already. After I tried the update button, it still reports 1.6.1. Deinstalling and re-installing didn't help either. KDE just won't forget I ever installed the 1.6.1 version., and I forgot where I put the original file / don't know where KDE stored it by default

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
