I have been having a minor issue with kitty. I am running bspwm; which I can define rules for windows upon generation. I have a ruleset that applies to any window with the WM_NAME of Dropdown terminal.

The ruleset applies when I use it with other terminals (alacritty --title 'Dropdown terminal', termite -t 'Dropdown terminal). However; the ruleset does not apply to kitty. (When I run kitty --title 'Dropdown terminal'; the ruleset with window title is not recognized.)

Since bspwm applies rules on window generation; i was wondering if there is a (possibly miniscule enough that I can't determine) delay between setting of title and window launching. I want to test this; but I don't know how to test it myself.

  • OS: Archlinux (5.6.4-arch1-1)
  • Kitty: version 0.17.2

I can employ a workaround; it's not a problem or a bug report. However; I'm curious as to why my specific workflow does not work for kitty terminal only.

And note that you should really not use window title for this. Use
WM_CLASS instead which you can set with --class

Very fast response; thank you.

I changed my script to use your suggestion and works well.
