Hm ok, i get it now ;)

I have the same problem, so i wrote in my wmiirc (in the Tagging Rules

/Firefox.*/ -> 3
/Thunderbird.*/ -> 2
/Pidgin.*/ -> 4
/alsamixer.*/ -> 0
/weechat.*/ -> 4

And yes, i know that Firefox and Thunderbird sucks ;)

At system start i run a little script:

thunderbird & &>/dev/null
firefox & &>/dev/null
pidgin & &>/dev/null
urxvt -T "weechat" -e sh -c "weechat-curses"& &>/dev/null
urxvt -T "alsamixer" -e sh -c "alsamixer"& &>/dev/null

So there is every program on a predefined window.

Is this is a solution for you?

Best, Yannic
