just found out about SPC T Z and now I’m tripping

eggsyntax20:03:30

I don't have that one -- what is it?

eggsyntax20:03:42

Must be zone-mode? Doesn't seem to do anything for me.

pablore12:03:51

Are you on the develop branch?

eggsyntax13:03:00

Nope, master.

pablore21:03:47

develop has all the sweetness

vijaykiran15:03:35

I suggest M-x zone-when-idle 3 😛

vijaykiran15:03:48

Incase you want to stop the madness - zone-leave-me-alone

pablore17:03:05

this is what hacking looks like

ag18:03:50

yeah, totally they should've used emacs screen with zone in Westworld, instead screenshots of react source code

After a recent SM + package update, I'm getting this horribly obnoxious behavior -- when I start a helm command that pops up a separate popup buffer in the current frame (eg SPC p h), it instead opens it in a totally separate frame, ie a popup window (in the OS sense of window). Worse, the active window is often still the original window in the background, so when I start typing chars (eg a few chars of a filename to search for) it starts doing random things in the background that I don't see. Anyone else encountered this nasty little bugger? I'm struggling not to throw my laptop out the window...

eggsyntax20:03:37

Also hi y'all! 🙂

eggsyntax20:03:26

I have to actually click into the popup with the mouse to get it to respond 😱

eggsyntax20:03:49

When it happens, I get this in the terminal from which I started emacs: (emacs:19446): Gtk-WARNING **: gtk_window_parse_geometry() called on a window with no visible children; the window should be set up before gtk_window_parse_geometry() is called.

eggsyntax20:03:58

Whew, found it. To prevent this, you need to

(setq helm-use-frame-when-more-than-two-windows nil)
That variable was added in a recent helm commit, and apparently the author decided everyone would want this hideous behavior 😠 😉

jeff.terrell20:03:31

Yikes—that does sound like quite the annoying default.

practicalli-john23:03:31

@eggsyntax recommended way to switch back to previous Helm behaviour (i.e. no pop-up) is to add this to the layer section in ~/.spacemacs

(helm :variables
             helm-use-frame-when-more-than-two-windows nil)

eggsyntax02:03:56

Lovely, thanks!
