View Full Version : [ubuntu] openbox keybindings and screen size

March 9th, 2009, 10:42 PM
Hello openbox users!

I an trying to write key bindings to resize my windows. To do this properly I need to know the width of the screen. For example:

<!-- Put the window in the bottom right corner -->
<keybind key="W-Next">
<action name="Raise" />
<action name="UnMaximizeFull" />
<action name="MoveResizeTo">

Now, here I have hard coded the width and height to be half the screen width and height, which is fine if I know the screen size is 1920x1200.

What I want is a way of saying, for example, <width>screenwidth/2</width>

Is this possible at all?

I am curious about this too! It would be nice to make my shortcuts future proof.
