WhatPulse detects xplayer's input i.e. clicks/keys but not uptime.
Hello all,

I'm a novice Linux user and recently installed whatpulse ver. 2.8.1. on Linux Mint Sonya x64 to track time spent using certain apps.

Problem is with the default movie player of Mint (xplayer) it does not show up at all in the list of applications on the uptime tab but it DOES show up on input tab. Is the behaviour normal? I'm attaching a printscreen for reference.

Taking this opportunity, i would like to ask the following 2 questions:

1. Can i manually add applications for tracking, in case WhatPulse doesn't automatically detect them, the same way i can ignore them?
2. Can i manually add uptime to certain apps to compensate for time not logged?

Thanks

That's odd. Are you running it in fullscreen, when you have Media Player open? Is it running as your user (the same user that the whatpulse client is running under)

Hello,

Yes i've tried running xplayer full-screen but still doesn't register uptime. Only clicks/keys.

I've also confirmed that both programs run under the same user, as is evident by the attached screenshot.
