====== Rules ====== Rules are a key feature of herbstluftwm that allows you to control the arrival of new clients. A typical usage would be to "catch" the arrival of a new client and move it to a tag of choice. ===== Useful Rules ===== Following are rule sets and layouts for common guis that are not suited to a tiling window manager. <code> # GIMP # ensure there is a gimp tag hc add gimp hc load gimp ' (split horizontal:0.850000:0 (split horizontal:0.200000:1 (clients vertical:0) (clients grid:0)) (clients vertical:0)) ' # load predefined layout # center all other gimp windows on gimp tag hc rule class=Gimp tag=gimp index=01 pseudotile=on hc rule class=Gimp windowrole~'gimp-(image-window|toolbox|dock)' \ pseudotile=off hc rule class=Gimp windowrole=gimp-toolbox focus=off index=00 hc rule class=Gimp windowrole=gimp-dock focus=off index=1 </code>
