It's the same when using the stand-alone DockX.

Again, I can't replicate this with xfce in arch.

The two bugs most probably depends on the same thing, DockbarX can't correctly link the class name with the .desktop file.

Repeting the question form the other bug comment: What is the class name for the xfce4 terminal? You can run xprop from a terminal to find out.

first of all: thank you very much for taking a look into it. Your efforts are much appreciated.

Well, I have never used xprop before, so I don't really know how to use it and what you mean with "class name".

Anyway, I ran xprop from a terminal and then used the pointer to select the xfce4-terminal window.

Then I got some output on the terminal. I searched the output for the word "class".

There was just one line that contained the word "class". It's this one:

WM_CLASS(STRING) = "xfce4-terminal", "Xfce4-terminal"

Is that what you wanted to know?

If not: could you please explain what I need to do to provide you with the information you need?
