I had a long train ride today, and little battery life left.Â So I read the manual for stumpwm and played with it.Â Wow.Â The real key for me was figuring out how to restore windows to full size after splitting them “C-t Q”.Â So here are the commands that I use to navigate stumpwm
“C-t s” splits a window (actually a frame in stumpwm parlance)Â vertically — making it half as tall
“C-t S” splits a window horizontally — making it half as wide (horizontal vs vertical splits may be obvious to some people but they always seem to trip me up when I read them).
“C-t f” puts a number in the upper left hand corner of each frame, pressing the number for the frame you want to go to will do that.
“C-t Q” makes a window full-screen
“C-t w” lists the windows — applications running
“C-t #” where # is the window you want to use, brings that window to the top of it’s frame and puts focus there
“C-t C-#” grabs a window from whatever frame it is in, and pulls it into your current frame
getting emacs, a terminal (for emacs to run in), and firefox were all major amounts of damage, that I have sustained for the last month or so.Â Firefox was by far the hardest, when I get FF3 setup in x on OS X I will write about the process.
Here were links that helped me
http://tiny-tools.sourceforge.net/emacs-keys.htmlÂ — i’m still digesting this but it seems to be the msot thorough explanation of xmodmap and emacs key oddities that I have seen.
by using xev, I have figured out that I have 9 seperately addressable modifier keys available to me , counter-clockwise (capslock, l-shift,l-ctrl,windows,l-alt,r-alt, windows-context,r-ctrl,r-shift).Â freaking sweet
