Re: [dwm] Border on fullscreen WINE apps and tag masks

Thanks for the great explanation. The masking bit makes sense now,
however, I'm still having trouble with the behavior.

xprop reads as follows:

WM_CLASS(STRING) = "stalonetray", "stalonetray"

In my config.def.h, I have this:

/* tagging */
static const char tags[][MAXTAGLEN] = { "main", "web", "tmp", "sys" };

static Rule rules[] = {
        /* class instance title tags mask
 isfloating */
        { "stalonetray", NULL, NULL, 1 << 3, True },

When I startup stalonetray from .xinitrc or manually through dmenu, it
ends up in whichever tagview I'm in and not in the 4th tag "sys". Is
there something I'm missing?

I tested some more and I get the border in float layout and float
layout+maximized. In float layout I have found that I can click drag
the app to hide the border by moving it up and to the left 1 pixel.
This is kind of a cumbersome process and the window seems to reset to
the offset position with a border around it whenever the game reloads
a level and the window refreshes.

I've resorted to firing up twm for my gaming, haha. I'm thinking of
compiling a dwm with borders set to 0 and running that version for
games... again not the most elegent strategy, but I do like a border
around my normal daily apps.
