oppening all games in one workspace (i3wm)
Exidan 20 Apr, 2018

Hi everyone, I'm trying to make my games open in a separate workspace. Until now, I can only do this if the games open in the same workspace as Steam (using class=(?)Steam). but I wanted to open steam and steam windows on one workspace, and the games in another. Have any of you done this?

Can't you just move the game to another workspace with Mod+Shift+<Number> ?

Yes, but not what I want.

The obvious choice is to make a long list of patterns in i3-config, but I guess that is what you want to avoid.

You could do something like this in steam option for each game, although I guess that takes long as well.
