[SOLVED] How to send super-wingpanel to "All Desktops" in Openbox?

Pantheon Lite has openbox for the window manager, but super-wingpanel was designed for gala. In openbox, it only appears on the first desktop.

Openbox does have a feature, accessible from the window decoration right-click menu, to send a window to "All Desktops".

Is there a way to make this happen for super-wingpanel? It doesn't have any decorations, so the menu is inaccessible.
In compiz, super-wingpanel appears on all desktops as expected.

Plank (derived from Docky) does not have this problem, and appears on all desktops in both compiz and openbox.

Use obxprop, which comes with openbox package, to determine class, rolle and name (or all of them) and modify your rc.xml accordingly.

obxprop
#add to ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml
<application type="TYPE" title="TITLE" class="CLASS" name="NAME" role="ROLE">
<desktop>all</desktop>
</application>

Everything is explained on Openbox wiki. You can also restore decorations with that configuration.

Thanks! That's exactly what I was looking for!

The filters are stackable, but this is enough for what I need:

If you want to configure multiple/high amount of applications, you may want to try obxprop2obrc. You can use templates with that, store your configuration in another file and after you are done, copy it into rc.xml. Usually much faster.
