@ianyh
Might be something weird with accessibility permissions competing between Xcode and the rest of the system.
Also, hello, I am back.
Ian
@ianfixes
would it be possible to make a "test" button in the settings that called for the settings window to be moved by a certain amount, and see (via subscription) whether the OS accomplishes that move within 3 seconds?
Ian
@ianfixes
Now that the mouse integration has hit the 12.1 official release, what would stand between that and having it be on by default? (or at the very least, removing "experimental")?
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Removing the experimental is reasonable at this point, but I want to wait until I can make a Mouse tab in preferences.
We could probably make it the default. Might be confusing as it wouldn't overwrite existing users.
Ian
@ianfixes
For the time being I've switched to the 0.12.1 (61) binary because I'm pretty happy with how things are working mouse-wise at present

hi everyone. thanks for this very nice project, have been dying to find a xmonad equivalent on mac that just works
just got a quick question, i notice action are triggered when i lift the key, not when i press them down. is there any reason for this? kind of makes it feel less responsive tho

How can I view/collect logs? I seem to have an occasional Amethyst crash, and don’t see log files in any of the usual locations (~/Library/Logs, /Library/Logs, dmesg, or /var/log)
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Hm. If they aren't in ~/Library/Logs/Diagnostic Reports/ I'm not sure where they would be.
The logging mechanism for Amethyst right now isn't particularly robust and requires some hacking to get output from.
It doesn't lend itself well to long lived use, so occasional crashes wouldn't be feasibly caught.
If you are crashing it's probably this, though ianyh/Silica#10

@slippycheeze
@ianyh, hopefully I understood your suggested feedback path, and I'm sorry if not. I use Amethyst pretty much exclusively to give me "all maximized, all the time" on my mbp. Literally the only layout enabled is "fullscreen". I like this a great deal. The one shortfall is that floating windows -- system preferences most notably -- are positioned top-left at the (0,0) of the workspace. (eg: avoid the dock and menubar.)
That feels off-balance to me, and I'd prefer if they defaulted to being centered horizontally? That'd put them in the, no pun intended, center of attention when they pop into view, given I mostly use Alfred to launch them, and that pops up in, also, the middle of the screen. (centered horizontally, ~ ten percent or so from top vertically, I think? anyway, attention is at center-top of the screen during launch.)
Does that explanation make sense? did I miss an existing enhancement request, when I combed through trello and github issues? Is there another way I should be requesting this? oh, and, thank you so much for the app. It just works, which I find wonderfully refreshing and useful. :)
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@slippycheeze It's been on the docket for a while, but I haven't managed to get to it. This is the issue to track it. ianyh/Amethyst#437

Hm. If they aren't in ~/Library/Logs/Diagnostic Reports/ I'm not sure where they would be.

Ah yes, the crash reports are there! Thanks

Also, Amethyst “Focus Follows Mouse” no longer seems to focus on Google Chrome windows. May be due to the big chrome update, as I didn’t notice it before the update. I know it’s labeled as experimental, so, to be expected. Works fine with all other apps I am currently using.

@qayshp Could you open an issue on GitHub for ffm not working for Chrome?
Qays H. Poonawala
@qayshp
sure
Qays H. Poonawala
@qayshp
opened ianyh/Amethyst#754 , if there’s anything else I can help with (testing, experiments, logs), just tag me here or on the issue.
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Thanks.

@qayshp

Also, small inconveniences with FFM on that I’ve noticed and generally accepted as part of the trade-off:

  1. When using extensions that have hovering menus in Google Chrome (specifically LastPass), the menus close as soon as the mouse moves, regardless of where the cursor is (on the menu or not). Currently, I just resorted to using keyboard arrows.
  2. The same type of thing happens with iStat Menus, a macOS menu bar app that has a hover over when activated. I’ve tried adding the app to always float in Amethyst preferences, but that doesn’t help.

Mainly sharing to see if there are any workarounds I’m missing.

Tiling is so useful, but I must say, I also love FFM. Thanks for putting it in there!
Ian
@ianfixes
the Arduino IDE window (java app) seems to be 100% ignored by Amethyst
of course, as soon as I switch workspaces to say that and switch back, it starts working.
But I swear I moved it back and forth between monitors a few times, plus resized some frames (to prove that Amethyst was working) and it still floated

Hi! I just installed Amethyst and it seems really cool. I'm having trouble with command-tab not working the way it used to. Previously, it would cycle through programs that had open windows in the space, now it cycles through all open programs (most of which do nothing, since they have no open windows in the space). Is there a different keyboard shortcut I should be using, or any suggestions for how to deal with this? Thanks!
Tom Flint
@tomflint_gitlab
in tall-right , are we able to split any of the areas on the left side of the screen?

it looks like you want the setting for “When switching… switch to a Space” to be enabled. Screen shot above.

@ianyh is there anything between 0.12.1 and 0.12.2b3 that should break window handling and mouse stuff? I'm on a new work machine and noticed that (1) opening a new terminal window doesn't always reflow it, and (2) swapping secondary windows with secondary windows works, but secondary-with-primary doesn't
Ian
@ianfixes
Update: 0.12.1 is also misbehaving on this machine, I'll try to dig into it soon.
Ian
@ianfixes
calculations for 3column-left and -right formats seem wrong for mouse resizing
Ian
@ianfixes
In fact, 3-column layout with only 2 windows in it produces a gap...
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
@lstorey did you find a solution to your problem? That shortcut is actually a macOS thing so installing Amethyst shouldn’t have affected it.
@tomflint_gitlab I’m not sure I quite understand the question.
Ian
@ianfixes
Good morning :) just pushed the fix for #759 but you'll have to tell me whether the protocol/extension-fu I'm doing is reasonable
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
I saw the pull request go by. I’ll try to take a look soon.
Also, per your question about new work machine I’m not sure what would have changed other than maybe the OS version?
Ian
@ianfixes
I think the OS version is the same, although without the old machine (which was returned to the other company) I can't say
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
The Arduino thing doesn’t surprise me. Switching spaces actually triggers an operation that grabs existing windows that Amethyst doesn’t know about.
Ian
@ianfixes
I could also be seeing some form of race condition that was obscured by whatever corp image was running on my old machine
I'm getting mixed results on this machine -- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Chrome seems involved more often than not
Ian Ynda-Hummel
@ianyh
Chrome is weird these days.
Ian
@ianfixes
actually, that might be exactly what it is...
