OOTP window manager problem

[Linux]

It's a minor thing that should be easy to fix.

Here's a screenshot.



Here's what you're looking at. (It's my dock.)

First, the logo for the window manager is the logo for OOTP 2006, a game released over a decade ago.

Second, the window manager doesn't have a title, so the OS reports it as "Unknown."

It's my understanding that the solution to the second issue simply entails setting the WM_CLASS attribute for the window. Maybe another attribute or two. I'm not sure. But almost certainly WM_CLASS.

This issue is noticeable both on the dock and when alt-tabbing.

It's mostly aesthetic, though it also presents a usability issue when launching the game from the dock because users will see two OOTP icons on the dock:

(1) the OOTP 17 icon, designated as a not running application; and
(2) the OOTP 2006 logo, shown as a running application.

This issue exists on OOTP 16 and OOTP 17 for sure, and I'm guessing maybe all the way back to earlier versions, though I have not tested them on Linux. It's true for both the Steam and non-Steam versions of the game.

As someone who spends way too much time with the game running, it'd be nice to have this issue resolved.

Hi!
I'll submit a ticket for this, and will check it again when it's time to start testing for the next version... though it will probably a low priority item just now

Cheers!

Actually if you could just make a PT in beta that would be better than submitting a ticket. The support ticket would just go to me and I'd just end up making a PT anyway!

Should be fixed in OOTP 18.

I'm now seeing a baseball icon instead of the OOTP 2006 logo, but I'm otherwise not seeing this issue as resolved in today's version of OOTP 18.

It still shows up as "Unknown" when alt-tabbing and isn't linked to the icon in the dock.
