    hi @richardgv thanks for maintaining this (and compton!)
    do you know how to build the .deb package for skippy-xd? I remember using debuild -us -uc in the past
    Richard Grenville
    @nodiscc Sorry for the late reply. I don't really know how build DEB packages for skippy-xd. I use debuild-pbuilder to build DEB packages for compton on Ubuntu. You may wish to consult the documentation of Debian and possibly Ubuntu. From Liviu Andronic's PPA you could get DEB packages and control files.
    Thanks for the reply, I'll dig a bit more. FYI there are requests for packaging in the official debian repos for skippy-xd: https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=698065 https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=722445

    Hello, is there any build available for Ubuntu Wily Werewolf? The https://launchpad.net/~landronimirc/+archive/ubuntu/skippy-xd-daily does not seem to have it. Thx!
    (a pointer to build instructions is also fine)
    Has anyone of you guys tested this in Ubuntu mate?

    thank you for coding this tool. Right now we must press enter or click the mouse when choosing a window . I would prefer the traditional method that when the click alt tab get the focus on the window we want and once we release the button alt tab the focus comes on that window. I read the configuration but I can't seem to find that. Is this something we can configure or is this a feature request ? Please advice.
    Hi Richard. Thanks a lot for the tool, very useful! On a multi-display setup, with one of the displays scaled 2x2, skippy-xd does not occupy full screen. That's on FreeBSD. I've had to edit mainwin.c and insert the following code:
    iter->width = mw->width;
    iter->height = mw->height;
    on line 263. After that it works well.

    Hey guys
    I'm not sure this room is still active
    I was wondering if Skippy could still be used in 2019..? It doesn't seem to work on Bionic
    I am still using it with FreeBSD 11 and xfce4. Works perfect.

    @blackhaz I wasn't able to install it on Ubuntu 18.04 because it requires a library that is no longer available (forget which one unfortunately). Is anyone maintaining the thing?
    Hi there. trying to get skippy working on NetBSD with Spectrwm. Installed from pkgsrc https://pkgsrc.se/wm/skippy
    apparently skippy-xd works with spectrwm (conformal/spectrwm#397)
    I'm using skippy, not skippy-xd. I've copied the default config to ~/.skippyrc
    $ skippy --start-daemon &
    [1] 5996
    $ sleep 1 && skippy --active-window-picker
