I have this in in my fvwm configuration file:
Style Gaim StartsOnPage 0 0, SkipMapping
Style Eclipse StartsOnPage 2 0, SkipMapping
Style Firefox-bin StartsOnPage 4 0, SkipMapping
Style Opera StartsOnPage 4 0, SkipMapping
Style Thunderbird-bin StartsOnPage 5 0, SkipMapping
Now when I start gaim it ends on page 1 instead of 0… All other applications end on their designated pages except for Gaim…
Did anybody else have this problem or know to solve it?
Maybe it was started there once before and the application is remembering where it should start.
You could try
Style Gaim NoPPosition,...
My only other thought is that it may have a different title or class than just Gaim, so you could try xwininfo on it to get the name you need for the style command.
I suppose that was the problem, because when I rebooted everything was working as it should…
Yup – it’s useful for those really annoying programs. Some have claimed it workes for xmms as well – I have found that not to be the case, preferring to use FvwmEvent…
