Awesome WM start client on tag

I'm using Debian but I have not found an independent forum about awesome wm, so I'm asking here. (And opening a bug report immediately is not a good idea.)

I'm using Firefox 20, and I want the new private browsing window (CTRL+SHIFT+P) to open always on tag9.

This is my not-working rule to accomplish this:

{ rule = { name = "Private Browsing - Mozilla Firefox (Private Browsing)" },
      properties = { tag = tags[1][9] } },

It still starts on tag1.

Does this work somehow for someone else?

Re: Awesome WM start client on tag

Hi dash,

There is an official IRC channel and mailing list for Awesome.  You can find the IRC channel on http://www.oftc.net/ in the #awesome channel.

Or you could subscribe to the mailing list here.

mailto:awesome-devel-subscribe@naquadah.org

On a side note, not sure why it wouldn't work.  Maybe there is a limitation to how many tags you can have.  But I'd recommend using those two sources to get the information you need.

Good luck with bug smile

Mine looks like:

   { rule = { class = "Firefox" },
      properties = { tag = tags[1][2], switchtotag = true } },

which brings Firefox up on tag 2. Note the "switchtotag=true" and note that your "name" might not match anything that the system knows about.

Re: Awesome WM start client on tag

I can confirm this behavior. However, restarting awesome causes Firefox's Private Browsing window to move to the specified tag. I don't know why it doesn't move immediately though.
