2 important settings.... how?

Postby wrender on Fri May 09, 2008 8:11 pm

Does anyone know how to do these two things in fluxbox mint?

1. Release the alt key from moving windows so other programs can use it(and maybe set the windows key to move windows instead)?

2. Resize windows from any edge instead of just the bottom corners including when maximized?


If I could do these two things I would be very happy!

1. Gnome configuration editor apps/metacity/general/mouse_button_modifier <Super> But the super doesnt seem to want to work when set.



2. The mouse_button_modifier also seems to be able "resize the window (middle click)", however I cant seem to figure out how to work that.. middle click does nothing for me.


I guess Im figuring this out on my own... :|

ps.I didn't realize fluxbox used metacity?

News in 1.0rc2:
* New resource/command
* session.modKey: <modkey>
* command SetModKey <modkey>
eg: session.modKey: Mod4 allows to use the winkey to resize and move
windows and have Mod1 (Alt) free for using blender or Maya.


how does one Set Mod4?

Sorry..... I am just frustrated and I did not consider the possibility of no one knowing. It is my poor assumption that someone might have a shred of advice on my dilemma. I suppose that I am not used to such a passive front.


Cheers.

Re: 2 important settings.... how? [Alt & Win-Key swap]

Postby chasmc on Thu Sep 23, 2010 3:27 pm

Swapping Alt and Windows Keys (Mod1 with Mod4)

This is kind of a recap for clarity. It seems to apply well to 'LinuxMint 9 Fluxbox'.
*( I'm not sure about earlier fluxbox versions, perhap they just use
the session.modKey adjustment only in the file ~/.fluxbox/init
)

This swap can be useful for games where the alt key is used for camera
and you accidently start moving the screen around if in a window mode.
example game: SecondLife

Two files:

in file ~/.fluxbox/init

change,
Code: Select all
session.modKey: Mod1

to,
Code: Select all
session.modKey: Mod4


Next,
in file ~/.fluxbox/keys

change ( Be sure to check for more than one instance of this blob of code in the keys file. Mine had two of the same.)
Code: Select all
!mouse actions added by fluxbox-update_configs
OnWindow Mod1 Mouse1 :MacroCmd {Raise} {Focus} {StartMoving}
OnWindow Mod1 Mouse3 :MacroCmd {Raise} {Focus} {StartResizing BottomRight}

to
Code: Select all
!mouse actions added by fluxbox-update_configs
OnWindow Mod4 Mouse1 :MacroCmd {Raise} {Focus} {StartMoving}
OnWindow Mod4 Mouse3 :MacroCmd {Raise} {Focus} {StartResizing BottomRight}
