Hello, harii4.

It has to be the same file, look :

Code:
tile --help
tile 0.7.0

Usage: tile [OPTIONS]...
              --help            Print help and exit
   -V         --version         Print version and exit
              --verbose         Increase Verbosity (up to 5 times)

   -h         --horizontal      Horizontal Placement
   -v         --vertical        Vertical Placement (default)

   -pSTRING   --profile=STRING  Window Manager Profile Name (default='Default')

   -m         --win-workspace   Enable multi-desktop _WIN_WORKSPACE support (oroborus, fluxbox, etc) (default=off)
   -w         --net-wm          Enable multi-desktop _NET_*_DESKTOP support (GNOME, NET WM, etc) (default=off)


but mine is an earlier version it seems.

It is in a *.deb archive, but as I mentioned above I retrieved it from the ostatic site. Where did you get yours? More recent is better of course.

As to borderless + tile, that depends. tile or wmtile will tile any program, but oroborus makes borderless only those programs you specify like so in the ~/.oroborusrc file:

Code:
# define a list of borderless window class names
# seperated by semicolons.
borderless_windows=stalonetray;oclock;urxvt;xload;conky
# X-Chat


(Before-last line in my .oroborusrc config file.)

You say jemimah dabbled with this tiling stuff too?

As to cascades, tile doesn't do cascades, as it name implies! Smile I'm looking for an external cascade program for oroborus, that's what I'm saying. In addition to "tile", a "cascade" program would be a nice tool to have with oroborus.

Thanks!

I'll see if I can write a "cascade windows" script with the help of wmctrl.

Keep you posted.

I got an newer one from debian but it lack options that this one have.
you need jemimah's tile from:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=47192
just change her WMpack.pet to an .tar.gz and open it up.

or use this:
-u --undecorated Remove Window Decorations

Casadeing windows Very Happy
-c --cascade Casade the windows

Hello, harii.

Thanks for your trouble.

I followed your suggestion, but jemima's "tile" is not working for me at all. Nothing happens. I have to stick with the Debia 7.1 version to get any results. And both draw blue lines on the screen...

BFN.

Sorry musher0 been real busy.

I think i know whats wrong.
Where did you put the tile app.?
Try usr/bin and not usr/local/bin as in Fluppy

Fluppy and TXZ-pup are puppy 4 Confused
What puppy are you using?

What the console say?

Some Oroborus users use keylaunch. -- (useful for EvilWM, YeahWM and ect...)
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=350303#350303
The DotPet :
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?mode=attach&id=22585

sample .keylaunchrc
Code:
# Copy to $HOME/.keylaunchrc
#
# Format:
# key=...KeyName:Command
#
# ... No modifier
# *.. Shift
# .*. Ctrl
# ..* Alt
#
#key=..*Return:xterm
#key=.**n:netscape

key=*..z:smenu
key=*..x:9main /root/menu1.txt
key=*..c:9main /root/menu2.txt

key=..*s:seamonkey
key=..*l:links -g

key=.*.q:xkill
key=..*r:rox /usr/share/applications

Some find keylaunch easier to use than xkeybinds Wink
