#1033 closed enhancement (fixed)

xpra remember workspace switch

Reported by: Jiang Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone: 0.16
Component: android Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:


In xpra 0.15.8, the feature of remembering which workspace a window was on in the previous connection was removed. Is it possible to bring it back?

I understand that it breaks certain features elsewhere. However, it never breaks anything for me, and it proves very useful.

Is it possible, perhaps, that one retain the feature in the code, accessible via a commandline switch, but make it off by default? This way, users who find it useful and does not break anything can manually switch it on?

Thank you for considering this!

The change was in #1025, you can re-enable workspace support in 0.15 by setting the environment variable: XPRA_SET_WORKSPACE=1 before starting the client.

Thanks a lot! That works. If I read #1025 correctly, does this mean that I do not need this any more fore 0.16 branch?

Correct, the code in 0.16 has been cleaned up and it does not cause compatibility issues, it remains enabled by default.
