Re: [dwm] Assign specific tag to a console based program?

The terminal client you're using should offer a command line option to
set the title. Search the man page for how it's handled since it varies:
gnome-terminal has a --title or -t option, dtterm has -title, and
old-school xterm should set the title to what -e was given.

I have a "float" rule in my config.h so I can do something similar to
what you're doing, only instead of setting tags, it floats the window.
