Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely.

Openbox' rc application rules don't use the "raw" value of xprop properties

Posted 02-12-2019 at 04:45 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

For a long while, I thought you should add things like "_NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE_DIALOG", the literal output of xprop/obxprop, but you should actually just abbreviate this part at least to either "normal, dialog, splash, utility, menu, toolbar, x, or desktop", as the comment-description that should come in the default rc.xml says.

That's particularly useful if you have different rules for different windows of the same application, like having the main window maximized...

For a long while it worked with Devil's Pie, for some reason it stopped working.

But fortunately Openbox' own settings can fix it:

Code:
       <application role="dlg_dest_folder" >
      <position
