I want my calculator to always appear on the visible workspace. Right now, I have to right click its title bar every time I open it and check the option, but I know earlier versions of Compiz allowed me to make this automatic for every instance of specified programs. Is there still a way to do this, and if so, how?
compizconfig-settings-managerif you haven't already.
Open CompizConfig Settings Manager and enable the Window Rules plugin:
In the Window Rules plugin, enter
class=Gcalctool(If you are using a different calculator find out the class name by clicking the + button and then using the Grab feature).
Your calculator should now be visible on every workspace:
4Is there an alternative way? It looks like 'compizconfig-settings-manager' does not play well with unity in 12.04... May 1, 2012 at 7:27
2This works with Unity in 13.04, although you have to install
compiz-pluginsfor Window Rules to show up.– RaphaelJan 6, 2014 at 11:51

@SRachamim You will need to install the plugins to have access to it:
sudo apt-get install compiz-pluginsJul 19, 2019 at 3:57
Someway to do this via command line? May 8, 2020 at 0:23
