Tiling script for kwin

README.org

kwin-tiling

Tiling script for kwin, based on Mathias Gottschlag’s version

Goals:

The purpose of this is to create a userfriendly tiling solution that

  • Integrates well with KDE Plasma
  • Works for the general case

More sophisticated users may prefer dedicated tiling window managers

  • Provides most of the advantages of a tiling WM in a fully composited environment

Window previews and effects alongside different tiling layouts

  • Does not require the user to delve into scripting to get a sane configuration

Features:

  • Three layouts, one with support for multiple “master” windows
  • Support for minimizing and unminimizing windows
  • Support for setting windows to floating or quitting tiling altogether, per-desktop (Meta+Shift+F11) and per-window (Meta-f) (“Meta” refers to the “super” or “windows” key here)
  • Support for a list of ignored windows in configuration (by class)
  • An option to start windows at the master position (like in xmonad)
  • Mouse resizing
  • Useractionsmenu and keybinding (Meta+f) for toggling tiling/floating
  • An option to turn off borders for tiled windows
  • A hotkey to tile once
  • Many bugfixes over mgottschlag’s version

Installation:

git clone https://github.com/faho/kwin-tiling.git

cd kwin-tiling/

plasmapkg –type kwinscript -i .

Usage

Install

Move windows around and see that they are tiled :-)

Resize windows to resize the tiles

Press M-PgUp or M-PgDn to switch the layout

Use the configuration menu (in Systemsettings->Window Behavior->Scripts)

Known Issues:

Activities aren’t handled at all

Clients with min/maxSize may not tile properly

Multimonitor is untested
