Fluxbox has also the option to save the current window settings so when I set a window to save it's position and close it, it will appear at the same position again when I reopen it - of course only when I set the "save window settings on close" option.
> Openbox doesn't write to the rc.xml at all and the model or whatnot is such that it won't change easily.  In the future I can see this being addressed, long term, but for now you have to edit the rc.xml to save config things - obconf does a lot of this, but not app settings.
OK, speaking of this, I have a question about this rc.xml
I used this file to save some applications settings that work just fine.
Now I wanted to add a rule for my webbrowser to appear on Desktop 2 just the way I did it for other programs and
+Desktop 3.

I even copied the code and just replaced the application - without success.

xprop gives me these info about the window - I thought I should identify it via role and/or class:

WM_CLASS(STRING) = "Navigator", "Iceweasel"

my rc.xml looks like that:

<application cole="browser">

reconfigure/restart of openbox does not help - what am I missing here?

Happy easter ;)
