If your application forks and quits, xiwi may get confused and quit as well (you’ll get an error/quit when the window launches). Search your application’s documentation for a parameter that prevents forking (oftentimes it’s
-f). If you can’t find one, you can pass
-f to xiwi itself (e.g.,
xiwi -f gvim), and xiwi will not close unless there are no applications visible and you close the Chromium OS window. It’s always better to use the appropriate options on the application’s side of things if possible, though (
xiwi gvim -f in this example).
