Please see the screenshot, I think that explains.
So yesterday I noticed that dwm was not functioning properly. As you can see, it is not putting the window on the entire space, though it is in tiling mode =. Also, if I change to tag 3 (say), it still shows tag 1 in the bar, though it does indeed go to tag 3. Finally, if I open firefox (say) from the terminal I have scrotted, it will open it on top of the terminal, and occupying about 2/3 of the desk.
I reinstalled dwm just now, but the problem is exactly as described. I did not rebuild it, I will do that shortly, but thought to get inputs from folks if they have seen this issue.
–Protect teachers, for God’s sake. Don’t let there be another Samuel Paty.
UPDATE: OK, so I figured out the problem.
I have 2 monitors connected.
- If dwm is run w/ both monitors separate (ie, not mirror) then things work fine, and as expected.
- If after logging in, I use xrandr to mirror the monitors (which I need to do for some applications), then the problems arise. I am able to reproduce.
@natemaia: I strongly suspect the issues I was having w/ yax are some other form of this. Namely, multimonitor setup, and some xrandr commands do unexpected things (at least to dwm, and I would say probably to yax). That is also likely why only I experienced these things—multimonitor + xrandr configs are not usually common to many users (meaning, even if lot of multimonitor folks tested yax, likely none of them had my xrandr configs). Please look into this, would love be able to re-test yax after that is fixed.
