Hello there, as bspwm users we sometimes feel frustrated about the layouts possibilities, but it is not without counting on clever little ones who know how to script things.
I discovered this little project in the AUR: bsp-layout.
Here 's a screenshot to illustrate three layouts in addition to monocle and tiled.
Layouts names are: even, wide & tall followed by the desired workspace.
bsp-layout set even 4, bsp-layout set wide 7, bsp-layout set tall 10
I noticed some weird screen things if you set
bspc config automatic_scheme spiralso I change to “
alternate” and it looks fine now.
In your bspwmrc:
bsp-layout set wide 4
bsp-layout set tall 7
bsp-layout set even 10
