This had been reported in #736 and fixed in revision af894c6, but somehow it seems to have been dropped along the way.

Getting quodlibet's PID:

+paulo@monk:~/tmp$ ps -ef | grep quodlibet
paulo    19093  2376  4 19:22 ?        00:00:51 python3 /home/paulo/.local/bin/quodlibet

Checking its process title and its command line:

+paulo@monk:~/tmp$ ps -o pid,comm,args 19093
19093 q               python3 /home/paulo/.local/bin/quodlibet

As you can see, its process title is set to q. I bumped into this when I tried to pgrep quodlibet in a script:

+paulo@monk:~/tmp$ pgrep quodlibet

pgrep works on the process titles, and doesn't find quodlibet because its process title is set to q.

I'm running quodlibet 07f603a on Xubuntu 17.10.

Confirmed on 07f603a (and 294 commits before that, FWIW).

Thanks for the report.

Thanks, @lazka ! I've just tested it, it's fixed:

:paulo:~/src/quodlibet$ ps -ef | grep quodlibet
paulo    13404  3733  6 06:35 ?        00:00:27 python3 /home/paulo/.local/bin/quodlibet
:paulo:~/src/quodlibet$ ps -o pid,comm,args 13404
13404 quodlibet       python3 /home/paulo/.local/bin/quodlibet
