Add user to window title


Description Klaus Kusche 2011-07-09 13:06:10 CEST
In Gnome, if an application runs under an userid which differs from the current session, the user is added to the windows title.

Could we have that for xfwm, too?

In my case, this is relevant for some root applications and to check that firefox is really running under my low-privledge guest account and not my working account.

Has to be done in src/client.c:clientCreateTitleName(), it currently supports writing the hostname in the window title when different.
