[Solved] Browser and e-mail autostart

I've got a question: I run two programs (browser and e-mail) in the OpenBox "autostart" file.
So far everything well at the start then beat both on the desktop!
I want the two but if you only reduced as a symbol in the panel (tint2) on Desktop 1.

How does it work? What command and where I need to provide this?

Re: [Solved] Browser and e-mail autostart

I presume you are asking how to start the applications minimised.

For Iceweasel, add this stanza to ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml

<application name="Navigator" class="Iceweasel">
  <iconic>yes</iconic>
</application>

You can use the same trick with your email application by using:

xprop

and clicking on the email application window, then look at the "WM_CLASS(STRING) =" line to get the application name & class.

This is untested as I'm using xmonad, let me know if it doesn't work.

Re: [Solved] Browser and e-mail autostart

be careful that popup windows don't get minimized too!
so, as HoaS hinted at, you have to get both application name/class and role correct.
and for that you should use "obxprop", not "xprop".
the process is described in ~/.config/openbox/rc.xml
