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?

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

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.
