Description of the issue:
the chromium --class command line flag is not actually changing the reported application class. (this could be an upstream bug in chromium).
This manifests is in dock applications like Cairo-Dock and Dock-to-Dash.
Where setting the WM_CLASS manually via the --class flag doesn’t work,
then all the brave windows (including those run from their own shortcuts) are grouped under one icon, instead of having the applications that are run from their own shortcuts grouped under their own icons.
How can this issue be reproduced?
- launch a brave application from command line with --class=“test-class”
- I an new command line run “xprop WM_CLASS” and select the window
- Note that the class doesn’t change.
The application class should have changed.
