Sometimes Openbox' own rc.xml "application" settings will work when devilspie doesn't

Posted 12-06-2018 at 10:19 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

For whatever reason Devil's Pie stopped working with the geeqie "move" dialog. My preferred GTK3 theme is kind of broken and will naturally create a window that's kind of crunched in itself, but it can be circumvented by determining its size.
