Using DCOP to keep gaim popups under control
The first thing that came to mind was a mouse gesture that I would use when a saw a new conversation window in the taskbar, to select the window with minimal effort, and then another gesture or key combination to banish it to another desktop. I found that sending the window the key combination that I had set to move to a different desktop doesn't work - I guess such a keyboard signal needs to go to KDE itself, and not the particular program. Then I thought about firing off something with DCOP, but I don't know what function/component-of-KDE controls which virtual desktop a window is on.
The second idea I had was to somehow configure the system to automatically detect new windows that fit the gaim criteria and take action without my using a mouse gesture, but I have no idea what I would use to do this - can a script monitor such a thing?
I'm starting to like KDE more and more. It's just too cool that the power to manipulate all these subroutines is at my fingertips - if I could only just figure out how to use it.\"Nifty News Fifty: When news breaks, we give you the pieces.\" - Sluggy Freelance
