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

Posted 02-12-2019 at 03:45 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...

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

Posted 12-06-2018 at 09:19 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. 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

Bash xdotool+wmctrl "daemon" that maximizes "almost maximized" windows

I find annoying that, for whatever reason, it seems that some windows get "almost maximized" (I have the impression that some browsers do that by "design", even though I'm not sure), and then I end up clicking in a desktop pixel instead of the scroll bar or something. In my case that action is assigned to show the desktop/minimize all windows.

So here's what I just came up with so far, for a 1280x1024 resolution:

Code:
while true ; do sleep 3
