Hi I'm trying to define some rules (always on top, run on a specific tag) for some independent .jar applications at awesome wm.

In order to execute a .jar file, I have to do
java -jar program.jar

However if I define any other name than java in rc.lua file including the tittle of the program, it simply avoids the new rules

I've tried defining aliases in rc.lua file and writing a wrapper script in bash, but It does not work.

You can use class, name or instance to define rules, have you tried that?

Hi jormartr, it worked for me changing instance for name.

Thanks
