"Always on top" indicator script for Openbox

Posted Yesterday at 06:47 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated Yesterday at 11:22 PM by the dsc

May have some use outside of Openbox as well, I don't know. I have Openbox set up so the window focus will follow the mouse cursor, no need to click them to raise and so on, which I find usually convenient but sometimes it requires to toggle some windows to "always on top" in order to do some drag-and-drop operations and things like that. If I forget to do it, one of the windows will disappear below another and that's a bit annoying; sometimes I may have even toggled it, but toggled it...

NEWS about ArchEX 181114
A new version of ArchEX is ready! In this new version, which I call ArchEX 2019, I have added the Deepin 15.8 (latest) Desktop environment. Deepin (made in China!) is devoted to providing a beautiful, easy to use, safe and reliable system for global users. I came to like Deepin very much when I installed it in ExTiX 18.8. So I thought why not install Deepin also in ArchEX?

Study all installed packages in ArchEX 2019 Deepin/LXQt.

Tabbed xterm with suckless' "tabbed"

Posted 11-02-2018 at 10:40 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Just found about it today.

With the program "tabbed" you can put xterm (maybe some other stuff, or similar terminals specifically, haven't examined it more than that) on a tabbed interface on Openbox (on Fluxbox anything can be tabbed with no additional tools...).

Just by issuing it as such:

tabbed -c xterm -into

I found useful to add this to .bashrc:

cmdline="$(tr -d '\0' </proc/$PPID/cmdline)"
