    Re: maximus

    does anyone know if its specific for the terminal launch command or just the app name?

    what i've added was

    Empathy, gnome-terminal

    it works as expected (THANK YOU) but i'm wondering should I be using syntax as if i was launching from the term

    ie "empathy" not "Empathy"
    and "gnome-terminal" not "GNOME Terminal"

    or does the software know that this is all the same application

    Use the window CLASS returned by xprop in exclude list (was Re: maximus)

    What you need to use is the CLASS returned by the xprop command. If you install the x11-utils package, you'll get this command (not sure if that package is installed by default).

    An example for GNOME Terminal:
    • Run GNOME Terminal
    • Type xprop | grep CLASS [ENTER]
    • Put the crosshairs over the GNOME Terminal window and click


    This is the result:
    Code:
    WM_CLASS(STRING) = "gnome-terminal", "Gnome-terminal"
    And so you need to add "Gnome-terminal" (no quotes) to Maximus' exclude list using the techniques described earlier in this thread.

    Here is a script which you can bind to a hotkey to do all this automatically: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1483946. It works really well, and makes using Maximus for all windows (e.g., the "no_maximize" option unset) actually tolerable.
