Description Michał Górny 2012-07-29 08:13:12 UTC
AFAICS xprop is able to read multiple values for an atom property (separating them in output using ',') but is unable to set multiple values. Could you considering adding such a feature as it was requested by user [1]?

Comment 1 Gergo Tisza 2016-09-08 01:17:39 UTC
A fairly common use case for this is trying to set WM_CLASS (which is a struct of name + class; the class is the important one but xprop can currently only set the name).
