icewmhint - set IceWM hints by window class and instance
icewmhint [CLASS.INSTANCE] OPTION VALUE
icewmhint is a simple utility for passing IceWM hints to icewm(1)
by window class and instance. Unlike tools that use WMH or EWMH, such
as icesh(1), wmctrl(1) and xdotool(1), icewmhint uses a
_ICEWM_WINOPHINT, on the root window to pass
special hints to icewm(1).
icesh recognizes the following options:
Command options are mutually exclusive. Only one command option can be specified per invocation. If no command option is specified, argument parsing and processing is performed.
Print a brief usage statement to
stdout and exit.
Print the program version to
stdout and exit.
Print copying permissions to
stdout for the program and exit.
icewmhint has not general options: all information is passed using non-option arguments.
The following arguments are required:
Specifies the ICCCM 2.0 WM_CLASS property in terms of resource name
and resource class separated by a period (
.). For example:
XTerm.xterm. This argument must be specified for all commands
affecting client windows.
Specifies the OPTION to affect and the VALUE that goes with the option. Options and their arguments are as follows:
General option arguments are normally associated with GNOME WinWM/WMH hints (except for the tray option argument).
Specifies the icon name for windows of CLASS.INSTANCE. NAME should be the name of the icon. icewm(1) will use is usual method to find the icon. The default is the name provided by window manager hints.
Specifies the workspace on which a window of CLASS.INSTANCE will be initially placed. The default is to place the window on the current workspace. WORKSPACE should be a numeric workspace number (counting from 0).
Specifies the initial geometry for windows of the given CLASS.INSTANCE. GEOMETRY must be a geometry that can be parsed by XParseGeometry(3). The default is the geometry provided by window manager hints.
The layer is a similar concept to the layer specified by GNOME/WMH and implied by NetWM/EWMH. It is in this case however specific to icewm(1).
The command option specifies the layer to be associated with an
CLASS.INSTANCE. The default is the
Normal layer. VALUE
is either a numeric layer NUMBER or a symbolic layer name. Symbolic
layer names are one of the following:
Desktop (0) desktop window layer. Below (2) below normal windows. Normal (4) default window layer. OnTop (6) above normal windows. Dock (8) docks (panels and edge displays). AboveDock (10) above docks. Menu (12) above everything else.
Specifies the tray handling to be applied to windows with
CLASS.INSTANCE. This option is specific to icewm(1) and
_ICEWM_TRAY property associated with the window.
The default is
Ignore. VALUE can be a numerical option NUMBER
or a symbolic name as follows:
Ignore (0) only in task list. Minimized (1) icon in tray, task list unminimized. Exclusive (2) only in tray, not in task list.
Specifies which functions are disabled/enabled (0/1) for windows with CLASS.INSTANCE. All function options have a default value of enabled (1) unless overridden by the application. The Motif-like functions are as follows:
fClose can be closed: (default: 1). fHide can be hidden: (default: 1). fMaximize can be maximized: (default: 1). fMinimize can be minimized: (default: 1). fMove can be moved: (default: 1). fResize can be resized: (default: 1). fRollup can be shaded: (default: 1).
Specifies which decorations are disabled/enabled (0/1) for windows with CLASS.INSTANCE. All decor options have a default value of enabled (1) unless overridden by the application. The Motif-like decorations are as follows:
dBorder has border: (default: 1). dClose has close button: (default: 1). dDepth has depth button: (default: 1). dHide has hide button: (default: 1). dMaximize has maximize button: (default: 1). dMinimize has minimize button: (default: 1). dResize has resize grips: (default: 1). dRollup has shade button: (default: 1). dSysMenu has window menu: (default: 1). dTitleBar has title bar: (default: 1).
Specifies which advanced features to be enabled/disabled (1/0) for windows with CLASS.INSTANCE. All advanced features have a default value of disabled (0) unless overridden by the application. The advanced features are as follows:
allWorkspaces on all workspaces. appTakesFocus let application take focus. doNotCover limits workspace if sticky. doNotFocus do not focus. forcedClose no close dialog. fullKeys provided more keys. ignoreNoFocusHint focus even no-input. ignorePositionHint place automatically. ignoreQuickSwitch not on quick switch. ignoreTaskBar not on task bar. ignoreUrgentHint ignore urgent hints. ignoreWinList not on window list. noFocusOnAppRaise no focus on raise. noFocusOnMap do not focus when mapped. noIgnoreTaskBar on task bar. nonICCCMconfigureRequest more configure requests. startFullscreen start full screen. startMaximized start maximized. startMaximizedHorz start maximized horizontal. startMaximizedVert start maximized vertical. startMinimized start minimized.
