I want to add this, but it behaves to not behave properly for some
reason.  It does not cancel startup notification when the window pops up.
Comment 2 Damian Christey 2004-11-11 17:50:46 EST
That is not the correct line.

For applications that aren't build to use to use startup notification,
you must add a "StartupWMClass=" line.

Adding "StartupWMClass=Firefox-bin" to Firefox's .desktop file makes
it work perfectly with startup notification for me.

Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2004-11-12 11:55:57 EST
Correct, StartupWMClass should be used if startup notification is not
implemented by the app.

To use StartupWMClass you must be able to guarantee that launching
this .desktop file will open a window with that class *always*
Comment 6 Warren Togami 2004-11-12 13:08:24 EST
Do we want to use StartupWMClass or use the patch in comment #3.
Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2004-11-12 14:12:41 EST
Um, the patch adds StartupWMClass
Comment 8 Christopher Aillon 2004-12-04 05:31:59 EST
Fixed in 1.0-4
