NAME

       fluxbox-apps - per-window attribute configuration for fluxbox(1)

SYNOPSIS

       ~/.fluxbox/apps

SYNTAX

       Variable parameters are shown in emphasis: argument

       All other characters shown are required verbatim. Whitespace is only
       required to delimit words, but it is fine to add more whitespace.

DESCRIPTION

       It is possible to force an application to always have the same
       dimensions, position, and other settings when it is first launched.
       These settings are saved in the 'apps' file.

       Most simple settings can be saved using the "Remember..." submenu of
       the window menu, which can usually be opened with a right-click on the
       titlebar. More advanced features require manually editing the 'apps'
       file. This may include using GROUP SECTIONS to set up automatic window
       tab groups.

       You do not need to "reload" fluxbox after editing the apps file, the
       changes should be rescanned when the next window is opened.

       The file is made up of two main types of sections, apps and groups,
       detailed below.

APP SECTIONS

       [app] sections provide settings for individual application windows.

       These sections begin with a line of the format

           [app] (pattern) {count}

       The pattern can be one or more patterns which match windows. For more
       details, see CLIENT PATTERNS. If you specify more than one pattern,
       they must ALL match for the settings to be applied.

       The {count} is optional. If specified, then the entry will only match
       at most that many windows at any time. If omitted, the default is to
       apply the settings to all matching windows.

       This opening [apps] line is followed by any number of settings for the
       application. See SETTINGS for more details.

       Each of these sections ends with the single line

           [end]

GROUP SECTIONS

       The primary purpose of [group] sections is to group windows together.
       All windows in a group will be tabbed together automatically.

       These sections begin with a line of the format

           [group] (pattern)

       Where the pattern item is optional. If specified, this pattern must
       match for the group to take effect. It is common to use
       non-window-specific patterns such as (workspace) here. See CLIENT
       PATTERNS for more details.

       This is followed by any number of [app] lines. These have a similar
       format to the [app] section detailed above in APP SECTIONS, but do not
       contain any settings and do not have an associated [end] line.

       Like this

           [app] (pattern)

       This section may also contain settings that are applied to every window
       in the group. See the SETTINGS section for details.

       As with [app] sections, each of these sections ends with the single
       line

           [end]

SETTINGS

       These settings may be stored in the 'apps' file. A settings line must
       appear inside either an [app] or [group] section.

       The general format is

           [setting] {value}

       All allowed values are described below, except for bool which can
       simply have the value yes or no, which enables or disables the
       associated setting, respectively.

       [Workspace] {number}
           Forces the application to open on the number workspace specified.
           Workspaces are set by number, beginning with 0.

       [Jump] {bool}
           Changes the active workspace to the remembered one when the
           application is opened. This is only useful when used in conjunction
           with [Workspace]. See EXAMPLES.

       [Head] {number}
           Forces the application to open on the number head specified
           (Xinerama only).

       [Layer] {number}
           Specify the layer to open the window on (by number). Each layer has
           a number. The named ones are: 2-AboveDock, 4-Dock, 6-Top, 8-Normal,
           10-Bottom, 12-Desktop.

       [Dimensions] {width height}
           Opens the application with the specified width and height, in
           pixels.

       [Position] (anchor) {X Y}
           Position the application at a particular spot. By default the
           upper-left corner is placed at screen coordinates (X,Y). If you
           specify an anchor, say BottomRight, then the lower-right corner of
           the window is positioned (X,Y) pixels from the lower-right corner
           of the screen.

           anchor may be set to one of:

               TopLeft Left BottomLeft Top Center Bottom TopRight Right
               BottomRight

       [Deco] {value}

           Specify the decoration state. There are several predefined value
           sets:

               NORMAL
                   Standard decorations

               NONE
                   No decorations TAB Like TAB except keep the tabs

               Border
                   Like NONE except keep the X window border

               TINY
                   Titlebar with only an iconify button

               TOOL
                   Titlebar only

               The value may also be a bitmask for finer-grained control. The
               bits are, from (1<<0) to (1<<10): Titlebar, Handle/Grips,
               Border, Iconify Button, Maximize Button, Close Button, Menu
               Enabled, Sticky Button, Shade Button, Tabbing enabled, Focus
               Enabled.

       [Shaded] {bool}
           Whether the window is Shaded (rolled-up) or not.

       [Tab] {bool}
           Whether the window has tabs enabled.

       [FocusNewWindow] {bool}
           If enabled, a new window will grab X focus as soon as it is opened.
           If disabled, a new window will not grab X focus as soon as it is
           opened.

       [FocusHidden] {bool}
           If enabled, the window will not appear in NextWindow/PrevWindow
           lists.

       [IconHidden] {bool}
           If enabled, the window will not appear in the icon area of the
           toolbar.

       [Hidden] {bool}
           A shortcut for setting both FocusHidden and IconHidden at the same
           time.

       [Sticky] {bool}
           Specify if an application should be sticky (shown on all
           workspaces) or not.

       [Minimized] {bool}
           Application should start minimized

       [Maximized] {value}

           Application should start maximized. value may be:

               yes
                   Fully maximized

               horz
                   Horizontally maximized

               vert
                   Vertically maximized

               no
                   Not maximized

       [Fullscreen] {bool}
           Application should start in fullscreen mode (fully maximized
           without any decorations).

       [Close] {bool}
           Save settings on close. By default, application settings are not
           updated when a window is closed.

       [Alpha] {value [value]}
           Set the alpha value for this window. If two values are given, they
           correspond to the focused and unfocused transparency, respectively.
           One number only will be used for both values.  value is an integer
           between 0 and 255.

CLIENT PATTERNS

       A pattern looks like this

           ([propertyname[!]=]regexp) ...

       Match definitions are enclosed in parentheses (...), and if no
       propertyname is given then Name is assumed. The regexp can contain any
       regular expression, or the special value [current], which matches the
       corresponding value of the currently focused window. See regex(7) for
       more information on acceptable regular expressions.

       propertyname is not case sensitive, whereas the regexp is.

       If you specify multiple (pattern) arguments, this implies an AND
       condition - All specified patterns must match.

       You can use = to test for equality or != to test for inequality.

       The following values are accepted for propertyname

           Name
               A string, corresponding to the CLASSNAME property (The first
               field of WM_CLASS from the output of the xprop(1) utility).

           Class
               A string, corresponding to the CLASSCLASS property (The second
               field of WM_CLASS from the output of the xprop(1) utility).

           Title
               A string, corresponding to the window title (WM_NAME from
               xprop(1)).

           Role
               A string, corresponding to the ROLE property (WM_WINDOW_ROLE
               from xprop(1)).

           Transient
               Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is transient
               (typically, a popup dialog) or not.

           Maximized
               Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is maximized
               or not.

           Minimized
               Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is minimized
               (iconified) or not.

           Shaded
               Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is shaded or
               not.

           Stuck
               Either yes or no, depending on whether the window is sticky (on
               all workspaces) or not.

           FocusHidden
               Either yes or no, depending on whether the window has asked to
               be left off the focus list (or, the alt-tab list), or not.

           IconHidden
               Either yes or no, depending on whether the window has asked to
               be left off the icon list (or, the taskbar), or not.

           Urgent
               Either yes or no, depending on whether the window has the
               urgent hint set.

           Workspace
               A number corresponding to the workspace number to which the
               window is attached. The first workspace here is 0. You may also
               use [current] to match the currently visible workspace.

           WorkspaceName
               A string corresponding to the name of the workspace to which
               the window is attached.

           Head
               The number of the display head to which the window is attached.
               You may match this against the special value [mouse] which
               refers to the head where the mouse pointer currently resides.

           Layer
               The string name of the window's layer, which is one of
               AboveDock, Dock, Top, Normal, Bottom, Desktop

           Screen
               The number of the currently used screen. If the setup of the
               running xserver involves independent screens (not Xinerama),
               the $DISPLAY environment contains something like :0.1 or :1.0.
               The part after the dot (.) is the number of the screen.

           @XPROP
               A string, corresponding to any xproperty (Use either the
               xprop(1) utility or the SetXProp command to set a xproperty to
               a window)

       Matches any windows with the CLASSNAME of "xterm".

           (xterm)

       Matches any windows with the same CLASSNAME as the currently focused
       window.

           (Name=[current])

       Matches any windows on the same head as the mouse but on a different
       layer than the currently focused window.

           (Head=[mouse]) (Layer!=[current])

       Matches any windows having a xproperty named FOO with "bar" in it.

           (@FOO=.*bar.*)

FILES
