Azulejo update – new keybinds and .deb package

So… After a  great deal of procrastination, I’m releasing a deb package of azulejo with some new window tilling actions.
This is still very unstable/experimental. To take advantage of the new features, you must delete your ~/.azulejorc.js in case you’re already using azulejo.

Here goes the current list of keyboard shortcuts:

Super+2		Place two windows side by side
Super+3		Place a window on the left half of the screen and two on the right half
Super+4		Arrange four windows two by two
Super+R		Rotate windows' positions i.e. cycle windows
Super+H		Resize and move current window to the left
Super+K		Resize and move current window to the right
Super+Y		Resize and move current window to left upper corner
Super+U		Resize and move current window to right upper corner
Super+B		Resize and move current window to left lower corner
Super+N		Resize and move current window to right lower corner

Download deb package.

    hi I am using Azulejo although I had not tried this later version. I did leave a link to this site on another site and someone tried the .deb version and it doesn’t install so I downloaded it and it’s true it doesn’t work – so If I was you I would go back to just supplying a zip folder – why have a .deb for simple script based programs anyway.

    Unfortunately azulejo is a casuality of the whole gnome3/gtk3 fiasco. I’ve experimented a bit gtk3 javascript APIs for the cinnamon desktop but they are nor stable nor properly documented. And unfortunately I cannot aford to dig through a monster codebase just to figure out how to do a couple of simple things. Otherwise, a cinnamon applet should be capable of providing all the functionality we would need to port azulejo.

    Qt is also being adopted by many projects projects that used GTK, but I suspect globaly assigning keybinds is beyond their definition of ‘cross platform’ and would probably need an implementation per suported desktop environment anyway.

    As for the distribution method, the deb has the advantage of being tightly integrated in the system, for example, when some dependencies were no longer available (python-leybinder to be precise), your system would also warn you that azulejo would not work, which was indeed the case.
    Note that this is _not_ a ‘script based’ program. It executes and stays running on your system with a couple of event listners.

    ok just saying the .deb doesnt work but the older version works great on my system – just a plain debain based system using the openbox desktop.
