The Tile-windows application is a tool which allows for the tiling of windows within non-tiling window manager. It is similar in nature the the application PyTyle.

Installation

tile-windowsAUR can be installed from from the AUR.

Configuration

For fluxbox and openbox etc, you need to use:

$ tile -m

This will follow fluxbox rules to choose only some of the windows to tile, not all of them.

For GNOME and net-wm etc. you should use:

$ tile -w

A config file exists in the /etc/tile/rc directory. You may want to make a copy to your home folder like: /home/yourname/.tile/rc Do NOT change /etc/tile/rc , because it will not work until you copy it to your .tile folder.

Then make some changes like change multi-desktop from off to workspace if you are using fluxbox:

# Multiple Desktop support.. netwm (GNOME/etc), workspace (*Box/Oroborus/etc), off. Default: off
# multi-desktop netwm|workspace|off
multi-desktop workspace

Also you can ignore some of the windows by:

# X11 Atom / String Value pairs to ignore for calculations and re-placement. No Defaults
# Syntax: avoid Atom(STRING) value
avoid WM_NAME Bottom Panel
avoid WM_NAME Desktop
avoid WM_CLASS FrontPanel

To find out the application you want to ignore in tiling, run this command in your terminal:

$> xprop WM_CLASS

When you mouse become a cross, click on the application window, then xprop will give you the WM_NAME and WM_CLASS. I add one line like this for tilda, my pop up command tool:

avoid WM_CLASS Tilda
