I am a little confused with the config file for orion. i think it has
to do with all the implicit backquoting that is going on.
Here is the part of the code that is giving me problems.
(let ((term (aterm -tr -trsb -sh 50 -fg yellow -bg black)))
`((quit . "F12")
(save-layout . "F11")
(nth-workspace . ("M-1" "M-2" "M-3" "M-4" "M-5" "M-6" "M-7"
(create-workspace . "F10")
(kill-client . "M-Escape")
(attach . "F9")
(user-bindings . (("F2" apply ,get-term)
; ("F4" apply ,xsel->opera-remote)
("F8" exec "emacs")))))
I tested the above in scsh, and it worked, but does not work in orion,
but I think there is yet more backquoting going on, which has me
confused. Doing ("F2" exec "aterm -tr -trsb -sh 60 fg yellow -bg
black"), gives an error about not finding an application of that name,
and if I then do ("F2" exec "aterm" " -tr -trsb -sh 60 fg yellow -bg
black"), on a whim it gets also gives an error.
I have tried passing strings, and other contortions, but so far to no
avail. I a reading the scsh manual to see if I can figure out what is
going on, but in the meantime if anyone can tell me what I am doing wrong...
This brings up more questions that I am hoping to get sorted out
eventually, but if anyone has a quick answer. The orion-client project
is becoming more and more necessary so I can test while running the wm.
Is there anyone who has set up a menu in orion, so you middle click on
a window and it gives you a menu to choose from, and failing that is
there a way to bind control-meta-<somekey>, as my attempts have failed
so far. I am interested as I do not want to clobber my emacs bindings
when I want to perform different commands.
