[xmonad] Problem with custom layout
Quesel at gmail.com
Thu Nov 10 10:56:21 CET 2011
I used the following layout:
reflectHoriz $ combineTwo (TwoPane delta ratio) (modifyLayout $ tabbed shrinkText defaultTheme) -- 2nd column layout (due to reflect)
(modifyLayout $ tabbed shrinkText defaultTheme) -- 1st column layout (due to reflect), unused
Hope it helps constructing a solution to your issue.
