Window "born" Sticky (man, what a title)

DarkVenger's picture

Taking advantage of the subject.

Does anyone know if it is possible for you to launch a window and it's already a sticky one?
Or if an application, let's say emesene, could launch it's chat window with a sticky flag?
If this functionality exists (and I believe so) it depends exclusively on the developer or can it be controlled by other means?

Here is an example if you are running Ubuntu: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=844385

The help in this thread should apply regardless of what distro you are using if you have Compiz.

Thanks

Thanks a lot for that Ubuntu example, the second post is a must :D.

I don't use either Ubuntu or Compiz. But devilspie does the job, and it's simple and lightweight.
