xmonad-contrib-0.10: Third party extensions for xmonad

MaintainerSpencer Janssen <spencerjanssen@gmail.com>




This module provides a method to cease management of a window without unmapping it. This is especially useful for applications like kicker and gnome-panel. See also XMonad.Hooks.ManageDocks for more a more automated solution.

To make a panel display correctly with xmonad:

  • Determine the pixel size of the panel, add that value to XMonad.Core.XConfig.defaultGaps
  • Launch the panel
  • Give the panel window focus, then press mod-d (or whatever key you have bound demanage to)
  • Convince the panel to move/resize to the correct location. Changing the panel's position setting several times seems to work.



To use demanage, add this import to your ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs:

     import XMonad.Actions.DeManage

And add a keybinding, such as:

 , ((modm,               xK_d     ), withFocused demanage)

For detailed instructions on editing your key bindings, see XMonad.Doc.Extending.

demanage :: Window -> X ()Source

Stop managing the currently focused window.
