wihack [-transient <window>] [-type <ewmh window type>] [-tags <tags>] <program>
wihack is a program which alters the windows created by an arbitrary program. It has the name wihack because it is just that: a hack. It uses LD_PRELOAD to override certain Xlib calls and add properties to newly created windows.
- -transient <window>
- Marks created windows as transient for a given <window>. This causes the new window to open in the floating layer of the same tags as <window>.
- -type <ewmh window type>
Sets the EWMH window type of the created window to the type
given. wmii understands the following types:
- Opens in the floating layer.
- Automatically opens in the floating layer. Does not have a window border or titlebar.
- Automatically floats and does not automatically receive focus.
- -tags <tags>
The created window opens on the given tags.
It is a hack.
It doesn't work for setuid programs.
It doesn't work for non-Xlib programs.
