Damn do I miss proper monitor support though, luckily I did kinda keep a separation between my main monitor and secondary naturally so it’s not as painful for me as it would be for some.

I’m not sure how Xmonad and AwesomeWM handle multiple monitors, but in Qtile you have a single set of groups analagous to tags or workspaces shared between your monitors, and each monitor displays one group. Xmonad should take note, have some actual documentation.

[xmonad] dual monitor

Note that you need to import XMonad. What i’m trying to get is to set the second monitor as the second workspace. It’s a GUI frontend for the xrandr command line utility.

When switching workspaces to one that is already visible, the current and visible workspaces are swapped. Gvim, terminal windows, etc on the primary and web browser on the secondary. I’ll have to try it out, nice excuse to get beyond my toy program Go experience as well.

Ease of configuration tweaks and number of plugin contributors. Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled. However it is a bit confusing when using a dual monitor setup. Aha, I think I found it, let me look at the code Nonitor Ask Question Wizard is Live!

Took about 2 hours since I had never written Lua before. Did you try to configure xorg. In my zshrc or your Bash login file if you use Bash I have defined the ‘single ‘ and ‘dual ‘ functions for this. Maybe it’s just my years with XMonad but I don’t use it that often, I mostly only want to move one window around, monitkr groups.

I have been giving the window manager Xmonad a try for a few days now on Ubuntu Anyone have any idea? You need to enable Xinerama setting it to “true” in the xorg.

Email Required, but never shown. Cool, I’ll give it a go and hope that it’s as helpful in getting into Go as xmonad was haskell, nothing like having your basic interaction mechanisms bug you to motivate you to dig into the code.
