I am running Debian 9.3. I created an .xinitrc file and a symlink, .xsession. File permission was changed to 774.
#!/usr/bin/env bash # # This is a sample file for the ~/.xinitrc file. # # Set fallback cursor xsetroot -cursor_name left_ptr # If Emacs is started in server mode, `emacsclient` is a convenient way to edit # files in place (used by e.g. `git commit`) export VISUAL=emacsclient export EDITOR="$VISUAL" # Disable access control xhost +SI:localuser:$USER ## Over-rides # xset b off & #numlockx off # Turn off numlock # Set keyboard repeat rate xset r rate 180 40 nm-applet exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session emacs
My init.el has the following:
(require 'exwm) (require 'exwm-config) (setq exwm-workspace-number 4) (require 'exwm-randr) (setq exwm-randr-workspace-output-plist '(0 "VGA1")) (add-hook 'exwm-randr-screen-change-hook (lambda () (start-process-shell-command "xrandr" nil "xrandr --output VGA1 --left-of LVDS1 --auto"))) (exwm-randr-enable) [...] ;; Global keybindings can be defined with `exwm-input-global-keys'. ;; Here are a few examples: (setq exwm-input-global-keys `( ;; Bind "s-r" to exit char-mode and fullscreen mode. ([?\s-r] . exwm-reset) ;; Bind "s-w" to switch workspace interactively. ([?\s-w] . exwm-workspace-switch) ;; Bind "s-0" to "s-9" to switch to a workspace by its index. ,@(mapcar (lambda (i) `(,(kbd (format "s-%d" i)) . (lambda () (interactive) (exwm-workspace-switch-create ,i)))) (number-sequence 0 9)) ;; Bind "s-&" to launch applications ('M-&' also works if the output ;; buffer does not bother you). ([?\s-&] . (lambda (command) (interactive (list (read-shell-command "$ "))) (start-process-shell-command command nil command))) ;; Bind "s-<f2>" to "slock", a simpl0e X display locker. ([s-f2] . (lambda () (interactive) (start-process "" nil "/usr/bin/slock"))))) ;; To add a key binding only available in line-mode, simply define it in ;; `exwm-mode-map'. The following example shortens 'C-c q' to 'C-q'. (define-key exwm-mode-map [?\C-q] #'exwm-input-send-next-key) (setq exwm-input-simulation-keys '( ;; movement ([?\C-b] . [left]) )) ;; Do not forget to enable EXWM. It will start by itself when things are ;; ready. You can put it _anywhere_ in your configuration. (exwm-enable)
When I ran xinit -- vt01 in a virtual console, I received the following error:
(EE) Fatal server error: (EE) Server is already active for display 0 If this server is no longer running, remove /tmp/.X0-lock and start again. [...] XIO: fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0" after 7 requests (7 known processed) with 0 events remaining.
I'm not sure how to resolve this, and would appreciate suggestions. Thanks for your time.
EDIT: jue's answer did the trick. I am now encountering a different problem--I've attempted a multi-monitor setup, but do not know how to open emacs in more than one monitor. I cannot seem to bind anything using exwm-input-global-keys with the Super key; funny enough, I am able to setq exwm-input-simulation keys properly. Does anyone know how to have emacs frames open in both monitors in the same workspace?
