For interacting with gnome-shell in Gnome 3, it would be helpful if each
figure window had a WM_CLASS of "Octave". That way gnome-shell could group
them all under a "Octave" item on the dash
(https://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell/ApplicationBased). Currently each figure
generates a new icon.
If I get around to it, I might try to patch this, but I'll open in bug in case
Here is what xprop says for the various backends:
currently no wm_class property at all.
WM_CLASS(STRING) = "FLTK", "FLTK"
untested, I've never learned how to use this backend.
(FWIW, Matlab also has this problem, e.g.,
Ipython and matplotlib do not: there the WM_CLASS is set to "ipython",
"IPython" (which is why I propose Octave use "Octave").
