I would like to suggest autokey or xbindkeys. The autokey has GTK and QT GUIs, it supports python scripts and text pasting. The xbindkeys is a more low-level thing, but you may prefer it since you decided to use dwm. I can't find a good how-to for Debian, so here is an article on Arch Wiki, it should give an idea of how to use it. Both tools allow to ...

I have the same problem, this trick works for me on an Intel HD 3000 with a cheap 720p Akira TV: xrandr --output HDMI1 --set audio force-dvi --mode 1280x720

This is what worked for me: xprop -id $(xprop -root _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW | cut -d ' ' -f 5) WM_NAME Gives: WM_NAME(STRING) = "~" So maybe you'd do a little sed ugliness to get the name all by itself: xprop -id $(xprop -root _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW | cut -d ' ' -f 5) WM_NAME | sed -e 's/.*"\(.*\)".*/\1/' Gives: ~ Which is my currently focussed window name, ...

On CentOS 6.5, I suddenly lost remote X-programs access after messing with /etc/hosts. Same symptom of empty $DISPLAY variable (no help setting/exporting it manually). The 127.0.0.1 entry pointing to the actual hostname is necessary; in fact the order seems to be also relevant (put last & it won't work...) [root@poseidon /etc]$ cat hosts # Do not ...

Do this once in Firefox: Type "about:config" in the Location bar, then search for dom.disable_window_open_feature. Sort by value to see any set to true, then double click to set to false. For instance, I changed status, resizable, and location. Enable pop-ups. Each time you want to launch the two windows go to Tools->Web Developer->Web Console and paste ...

I figured out the issue, in case anyone else was having this problem. KDE (or whatever you use) must be run via systemd, so (in arch) run (as root) systemctl enable kdm and then it should work.

I presume you want to avoid full-screen so you can see both windows. If what you really want is to see both pages, what about writing a five-line html file that opens each page in a frame. That way you can control the orientation borders, etc. in a single text file, rather than by making manual adjustments to browser windows.

Comment out own_window_argb_visual and own_window_argb_value. To make the window transparent set own_window_transparent = true. To make the window have a white background color set own_window_transparent = false and own_window_colour = '#ffffff'. Edit: it seems you have to turn on BUILD_XDBE at compile time and comment out own_window_colour to get a ...

Setting DISPLAY is not enough; the variable will only be set within the shell. To work in programs called from the shell, it must be exported. export DISPLAY=:0 Or you call wmctrl like this: DISPLAY=:0 wmctrl

If you don't care about security, it's not too hard: First, X needs to be running without the -nolisten tcp option that most display managers add by default. How you change that can vary by display manager and distro. User one can then open a terminal and run xhost +host2. That allows all users on host2 to open windows on user one's display. User two on ...
