Subtle has a well documented config file, you can find the global config file in:
To specify a custom config file you need to create a file under $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/subtle/subtle.rb or you can copy global config file. To create a user config just create
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME/subtle and copy the latest config from the
dist folder into it.
Note: You can find the
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME values by 'env' command on unix shells.
Right after making changes to your config you have to reload subtle and it is probably a good to idea to check for common mistakes with:
The default grab for reload is
Always compare your existing config with the one of the repository/tarball to get the latest options and check the latest news.
Clients can be moved and resized per grab, this setting defines the steps.
While resizing, this defines the distance before the window snaps to a border.
When there is no gravities defined by any tags, subtle uses this one as default.
Make dialog windows urgent and draw focus.
Honor size hints¶
Enable globally to honor size hints of windows.
Enable gravity tiling for all gravities.
Click to focus¶
Change the focus-model from hover-to-focus to click-to-focus. This might be useful for keyboard-only users.
Skip Pointer warp¶
Subtle moves the pointer, e.g. when the gravity changes or a new view gets focus. This can be turned off here.
Skip urgent warp¶
Urgent clients normally draw the pointer. This can be turned off here as well.
