I can start
pidgin exactly once such that it works, but subsequent times it starts but its window is just nowhere to be found. When I kill its process, it appears to flash up for the fraction of a second (and is then killed, of course).
rm -rf ~/.purple, it will start normally again, so I assume it saves some data which messes things up. However, this also deletes all my accounts and settings.
I tried auto-floating pidgin (
for_window [class="(?i)pidgin"] floating enable), but this has no effect on the problem (though it does float then)
Does anyone have the same issues and, more importantly, a way to fix it (or a shot at something I can try)?
