    Description

      As described in the comments of MC-30900, Minecraft sets its WM_CLASS on Linux to the same as the title, e.g. "Minecraft 1.13.2". This makes it impossible to use tools that use simple string comparison on the window class to manage Minecraft windows.

      The window class should be set to just "Minecraft".
