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. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

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

Posted 02-12-2019 at 04:45 AM by the dsc

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 and undecorated, but the others normal or organized in a different fashion.

I think I may even have set up some "devil's pie" scripts that I may not really need, trying to compensate what seemed to me a limitation of Openbox' application rules.
