Finally safe to try out in good company!
This is rpx, a port of ratpoison to Guile Scheme.
Although initially intended as a proof-of-concept exercise
to plumb ttn's ignorance of X11, Scheme, and good taste,
the result has proven to be useful as well.
Despite rpx veneration of ratpoison look, feel, and
internal design, there have been some unavoidable
concessions to some of the more hairy parts of Xlib (the
reimplementation of which is shared somewhat uneasily by
rpx and ttn-do). These are listed in the manual.
NEWS for 1.4 (2021-12-14):
- better EWMH compliance
- bugfix: RPX properly polite on startup
Previously, RPX would barge ahead and set window properties left
and right, relying on the X server to signal error to let it know
that another window manager was running. This method is not only
unreliable, it's not compliant w/ the Extended Window Manager
Hints spec. Worse, the result is RPX competing ingloriously w/
the running window manager. Uncouth!
Now, RPX checks the ‘_NET_SUPPORTING_WM_CHECK’ (et al) properties
and quits (successfully) if it appears another window manager is
running. By the same token, if there is no other window manager
running, RPX declares its intention to take on window manager
responsibilities by setting those properties, etc.
The upshot is that you should be able to invoke RPX while, say,
Xfwm4 is running, and it will DTRT and defer to Xfwm4.
- bugfix: subproc windows verified to be same-host
Previously, RPX assumed PID info derived from a client window to
be from the same host (as RPX), and thus might attempt to close
a window on a process w/ that PID that would ultimately fail.
Now, RPX verifies the host via the ‘WM_CLIENT_MACHINE’ property.
NB: This bugfix has not been extensively tested; please report
any difficulties you might encounter w/ other-hosted clients.
