i’m on mint linux with i3wm
i want to discriminate a special firefox session from the default sessions when its starts. So i need it to have at least one altered property right at the beginning
(later it changes its title but then it is to late. I want to assign it via an i3 command to a special workspace)
i tried this
firefox --class="pidgin" #xprop output: WM_CLASS(STRING) = "Navigator", "Firefox" firefox --class=pidgin #xprop output: WM_CLASS(STRING) = "Navigator", "Firefox"
xprop -set WM_NAME "Horst" #this works but its not at startup #xprop output: WM_NAME(STRING) = "Horst"
xprop -set WM_CLASS "Pidgin" xprop: error: unsupported conversion for WM_CLASS
1) how do i check that the
2) what is a valid value for <1>?
3) is there any other way/command to start firefox with an altered property?
To address 2), any string does the job:
$ firefox --class foo
i3 assign catches it (which is enough for me), but
xprop still shows the old value.
