Tiling window managers + intelliJ

Answered

Anyone has any luck with _any_ tiling wm?

I'm using awesome.
Issues:
- window ignores rules, and appears always floating, vertically maximized, no matter what rules say
- window doesn't get focus when changing desktop on mouse over, unless another window had it first

It feels like java apps are made of pure evil when in a tiling wm...

I think not enough attention is paid to tiling window managers. I am also using Awesome 3.5.3. If I open multiple projects, and try switching from one to another by clicking on the task bar rectangle, I am not able to switch. I need to minimise one project. Only then I can see the other project.

Indeed, same here. Note that the switching issue only happens after you've opened another subwindow of intellij (such as "search class" or "settings"). Before that, it works as expected...

This problem still exists for IntellJ v2017.1.4

I have another problem. I (mistakenly) resized a window while on a tiling mode (in awesomewm) and it stayed that way. For some reason I can't make it obey the tiling scheme again.

Arseniy Nisnevich, it seems my issue is now resolved. I just tested on AwesomeWM with the community edition and it is working properly.
