I am trying to find a workaround for incorrect grouping of windows in Docky, and I believe the problem lies with the WMClass attribute that is set for each window. However, I do not know how to view this attribute for open windows. Is there any way to do this?


In a terminal, run

 xprop WM_CLASS

and then click the window in question.

    @Blauhirn run xprop without arguments, you'll get all the properties (and should find WM_CLASS in there, if it's defined) – draeath May 26 '17 at 13:30
  • WHen i run this command the cursor only works when i click on the desktop. But when i click on the windows it doesn't work. – Maxrunner Mar 14 '18 at 11:51
