Hi guys,

Today I've had quite the problem, but I don't really know why. So Pidgin was annoying me, opening up a window at startup everytime, so I choose to assign it a workspace. I then stopped getting a red square notification ( the workspace's number becoming red in i3bar ). I asked a friend also using i3 and Pidgin, and apparently he never even got to see that.

I resetted my i3 settings back to what it was, even tried setting it to default, but I couldn't resolve this problem unfortunately. The only time I'll get the workspace's number to become red is if I open a contact's window from another workspace.

Thanks in advance for the help

I think that's configurable through one of Pidgin's plugins. Have you looked through all of them too?

I only have the libnotify plugin, and it does work properly with the pidgin icon, but I haven't found or changed anything that could relate to i3.
