Dexcube and Desktop Rules

Postby dkirk » 16.05.2012 03:44:43

Hi,

I'm using Dexpot 1.5.99 build 1928 with the Dexcube plugin. I have a rule that will always move my Chrome browser to desktop 2. It doesn't work. I have my email on desktop 1 and if I click on a link it moves Chrome to the current desktop (1). No, change that. It copies it to desktop 1. Now I have Chrome on desktop 1 and 2. I can move Chrome back to desktop 2 and I'm back to a single copy of Chrome.

I've done some testing. I disabled Dexcube and clicked on a link in an email on desktop 1 and it successfully moves me to desktop 2 and opens the page in Chrome. I turn Dexcube back on again and re-test and I get a copy instead of moving.

Am I doing it wrong or is this a bug?

Thanks

:dex:

Desktop Rules only apply to newly opened windows. Try "Application Assignment" instead.

Hi Patrick,

Thanks for the reply. I have enabled Application Assignment now as well. I did the same test. I opened an email on desktop 1 and clicked on a link. Chrome showed up on desktop 1 and then I see the Dexcube transition to desktop 2 with the link opening in a new tab. I switch back to desktop 1 and Chrome is there as well. I can move it back to desktop 2 and then I only have one instance.

So with both a desktop rule and an Application Assignment at the same time I still get 2 instances of Chrome.


Thanks

David

What is the option "Behavior of windows on other desktops" under "Settings > Plugins and Extras" set to?

Hi Patrick,

I didn't see that option before. It was set to 'Copy window to current desktop'. I have now changed it to 'Switch to the respective desktop' and tested again. It works perfectly.

Thanks so much for your help.

:ok:

Still looks like a bug though. Application assignments are supposed to override the cross-desktop activation setting...
