Various window management fixes for the Linux Steam client

Various window management fixes for the Linux Steam client

DISCLAIMER: Use at your own risk! This is in no way endorsed by VALVE.

These files are mirrored on both GitHub and Gist - use whichever you prefer.

Feature request for these changes to be implemented in Steam: issue #1040

steamwm.cpp

The window management fixes:

  • Force borders on non-menu windows.
  • Let the WM position non-menu/tooltip windows.
  • Group all steam windows. This helps WMs with their focus stealing preventions, and also prevents all Steam windows from being dimmed (by KWin) if any Steam window has focus (is a KWin setting).
  • Tell the WM which Steam windows are dialogs. This lets the window manager place them more intelligently. For example, the WM might center dialogs.
  • Steam sets error dialogs as unmanaged windows - fix that.

Obsolete fixes (now disabled by default):

  • Set _NET_WM_NAME to the WM_NAME value to get better window titles.
  • Set fixed size hints for windows with a fixed layout.

Fixes can be individually enabled or disabled - for details see the comments in the source file.

This file compiles to a library that can be LD_PRELOADed into the Steam process. For your convenience it is also its own build and wrapper script.

Requires: g++ with support for x86 targets, Xlib + headers

Use:

$ chmod +x steamwm.cpp
$ ./steamwm.cpp steam

noframe.patch

This is a Steam skin that complements steamwm.cpp: It is exactly the same as the default skin, but with the window borders and controls removed.

To install it use:

$ chmod +x noframe.patch
$ ./noframe.patch

and then select the noframe skin in the Steam settings.

#!/bin/sh
# Steam skin without any window decorations.
# Same as the default skin, but with the window borders and controls removed.
# To in stall it just run ./noframe.patch
self="$(readlink -f "$(which "$0")")"
name="$(basename "$self" .patch)"
skin="skins/$name"
cd ~/.steam/root/
if [ -e "$skin" ] ; then
echo "Skin '$name' already exists!"
echo "Remove \"$(readlink -f "$skin")\" first."

#// Various window management fixes for the Linux Steam client.
#//
#// You can set the following environment variables to 0 to disable individual features:
#//
#// STEAMWM_FORCE_BORDERS Force borders on non-menu windows.
#//
#// STEAMWM_PREVENT_MOVE Let the WM position non-menu/tooltip windows.
#//
#// STEAMWM_GROUP_WINDOWS Group all steam windows.
#// This helps WMs with their focus stealing preventions,
#// and also prevents all Steam windows from being dimmed
#// (by KWin) if any Steam window has focus (is a KWin setting).
#// NOTE: Window is still dimmed when showing menus/tooltips :(
#//
#// STEAMWM_SET_WINDOW_TYPE Tell the WM which Steam windows are dialogs.
#// This lets the window manager place them more intelligently.
#// For example, the WM might center dialogs.
#// NOTE: We simply treat every window with a title other than
#// "Steam" or "Friends" as a dialog window.
#// The startup window is also marked as a dialog.
#//
#// STEAMWM_MANAGE_ERRORS Steam sets error dialogs as unmanaged windows - fix that.
#//
#//
#// Obsolete fixes (now disabled by default):
#//
#// STEAMWM_FIX_NET_WM_NAME Set _NET_WM_NAME to the WM_NAME value to get better window
#// titles (and add " - Steam" suffix if needed).
#// Steam now doesn't set WM_ICON_NAME, _NET_WM_NAME or
#// _NET_WM_ICON_NAME anymore - while it would be better to set
#// them, their absence is unlikely to cause problems.
#//
#// STEAMWM_SET_FIXED_SIZE Set fixed size hints for windows with a fixed layout.
#//
#//
#// Requires: g++ with support for x86 targets, Xlib + headers
