[OPEN] dwm - icons in taskbar

Post by giddy »

Hi
I was surprised you had icons in the taskbar. How did you do this? Normally I start stuff in .xprofile but this has no effect regarding the icons.

Did you use a patch to run autostart.sh? I've seen a patch to run autostart.sh in .dwm but not in your location.

Many thanks

Dwm is not out yet.
You will have to wait.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.

Well I downloaded the files from arcolinud github.

Dwm has the patch 'systray' that handles the tray.

This morning I changed .xprofile to determine if dwm is the window manager.
In .xprofile:

Code: Select all

 /home/phil/getSession.sh
In getSession.sh:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
sleep 10s  #to get session
dwm='DESKTOP_SESSION="dwm"'
process=$(export | grep DESKTOP | awk 'NR==1 {print $3}')
if  [  $process = $dwm ]
then
/home/phil/dwm/autostart.sh  ............
It would be nice to see the final version!
