Bspwm not showing workspaces in bar panel


#21

I have not done much to configure the screens other than the window size change for the startup to utilize the full screen real estate:

bspc monitor -g 1920x1200+0+0

and this:

bspc rule -a pcmanfm desktop='^3' state=floating follow=on
bspc rule -a firefox desktop='^2'

Thanks for the suggestions above to eliminate the .xsession-errors. All fine.


#22

Try something like this in your ~/.xprofile (should be executed before the wm at boot)

xrandr --output eDP1 --auto --primary --output DP1 --auto --right-of eDP1

obviously replace the outputs with your outputs and you can change the command. This will place DP1 to the right of the built in display eDP1 at their preffered resolutions.

Really not sure if that’s gonna actually solve anything, was just an idea.


#23

Can you also post the output of cat ~/.local/share/xorg/*.log


#24

I get the following in .xsession-errors:

warning: output eDP1 not found; ignoring

cat ~/.local/share/xorg/*.log

No such file or directory

#25

It should be here then I guess cat /var/log/Xorg*.log.


The error you got from xrandr is expected, see the fine print

do xrandr -q to get some info


#26

cat /var/log/Xorg*.log (part 1 … need to split the file due to size).

Thanks natemaia. I finally got what you mean. Problem solved including removing:

bspc monitor -g 1920x1200+0+0

from ~/.config/bspwm/bspwmrc as it was not needed.
I guess bspwm is different from other wm. It does not ‘summon’ the workspace to your screen. It’s fixed to different monitors so the workspace was actually shown on my laptop screen but I did not notice as it is closed on a docking station. Disabling it solved the issue.


#29

Yea many wm do ‘workspaces’ quite differently from the usual, glad you got it sorted out.

Cheers

Thanks very much for your great help.

Also of note that I failed to mention earlier, polybar does not make multiple bars for multiple monitors, that is up to the user. You can easily create another bar and specify each monitor for each bar.

I’m also fairly sure you can configure which workspaces you want on which monitor in your bspwmrc and the bspwm module from polybar will parse all this out correctly and only display the relevant ones on each.

an example ~/.config/polybar/config

[section/base]
include-file = /home/leo/.config/polybar/master.conf
include-file = /home/leo/.config/polybar/modules.conf


[bar/bspwm-bar]
inherit = bar/master

monitor = LVDS1

modules-left   = bspwm
modules-center = clock
modules-right  = coreuse temperature memory


[bar/generic-bar2]
inherit = bar/master

monitor = VGA1

modules-left   = bspwm
modules-center = clock
modules-right  = pkg network volume

Then you can either load each bar manually in ~/.config/bspwm/bspwmrc or edit the sessionfiles in ~/.config/polybar/sessions/ and add another line with the bar you want loaded in order, eg.

/home/leo/.config/polybar/config bspwm-bar1
/home/leo/.config/polybar/config bspwm-bar2

Maybe that’ll help :man_shrugging:


#32

Also a really good video (which I’ve linked at the start of the bspwm part) is a great watch and might help to explain some things better than I have, she also goes into a bit of detail about the funny monitor setup that she uses to display the multi-head capabilities of each, highly recommended

Beautiful thanks for this great tip!
