Adds functionality provided by the dwm “swallow” patch to bspwm.
- bspwm (obviously)
Add two files to ~/.config/bspwm
noswallow - list of classes of windows that you don’t want to swallow the terminal
terminals - list of classes of terminals that you want to be swallowed
If a class isn’t available (such as with xev) then the command of origin can be used.
(example files are included in “examples”)
Place bspswallow into your PATH and add the following line to your bspwmrc.
(ps x | grep bspswallow | grep -v grep) || bspswallow
Now just restart bspwm and you’re good to go.
- Incompatability with LibreOffice due to it having a splash screen and spawning multiple windows, use –no-logo when launching and turn off “Tip of the day” in order to avoid this issue.
