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

* 1.7.0: Bugfixes, add option to defer placement to kwin

 finally :)

cool... .this is really working as it should!

i have one issue:

the tiling algorith seems to ignore the panel.
i set the panel to alway-visible (default) - but the tiled window are below it. (the panel area should be like a screen margin...)

it is working the first time i install the script. after reboot the unwanted behaviour occurs. deactivating and reactivating the script in the systemsettings helps, but after reboot it doesn't work anymore.

thx

Thanks for the info.

I pushed 1.1.1 which should make it retile once you open a window or move something after you changed the panels.

I could reproduce the rebooting issue and it appears to be fixed, too. Please tell me if it isn't.

it works better. my workspace with 4 urxvt's is now correct. (no panel overlap)

the workspace with firefox is still not working. (firfox top is below panel)

but , when i maximize firefox and unmaximze it, it is rendered correctly (same with other applications, f.e. systemsettings)

after i switch to another workspace , and switch back it is wrong again.

maybe this helps :)

p.s. if you need i can record a video.

Thanks, that did it.

This seems to be a kwin bug, but I can work around it.

See 1.1.2.

i hope you dont mind if i request a feature:

after selecting a new layout, it should be rendered automatically (at the time you need to switch to another workspace and back to ivoke it)

I've been working on that - it's a bug, not a feature, I just can't seem to isolate it.

 Bug

I'm getting a bug with KDE 4.11 and tiling 1.2. If you drag a window, but not far enough to change positions (like if you have two windows open side by side and you drag one window down instead of to the other side of the screen) I get strange transparency bugs.

I can't seem to reproduce this, so it's probably related to your configuration or setup (including graphics drivers), but I committed a possible fix.

Can you try 1.2.1?

I'm still getting this bug on 1.2.1. I'll try using my desktop to see if it has the same problem.

 reall nice, multi monitor options?

 
 by zeltak on: Nov 8 2013

Hya

really like this script , thx alot, it makes coming from a tiling wm much easier

one thing i wanted to ask is about multi monitor support? IE i have scree #1 a laptop and sometimes at home i add an additional screen (#2). can the script auto tile on screen #2 when the monitor is connected and auto tile on screen #1 when only laptop is connected? the new kcreen module:

http://www.afiestas.org/kscreen-1-0-released/

seems very intelligent on knowing when a new monitor is connected/disconnected so that could be really helpful

also related can the script auto make the tiled windows on screen #2 be sticky so that when you switch desktops on laptop monitor it will still be on screen #2?

sorry for the long post, just some ideas i thought could be useful for other people!

thx alot

Z

It's supposed to do multi-monitor, but it's barely tested as I don't really use it.

If you want to help out, test it and tell me when exactly it doesn't work or how it could be better (though github would probably be a better place for that)

the new kscreen module


Not helpful unfortunately as I can only use what kwin gives me (which should be enough).

Quite frankly that should be something for another script.

 Changing layout?

 
 by zilti on: Nov 23 2013
 
Score 50%

I installed this using "Get hot new stuff" from inside the KWin config window.
I can open a config window that lets me select applications that are excluded from tiling, but I can't find an option to switch the layout, how can I do this?
Otherwise, great work! Thanks!

Currently via keyboard shortcut only (defaulting to Windowskey+PgUp/PgDown).

Note though that the default layout is the best tested one, and one of the others lacks features (resizing)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
