Alt+Tab works but is there a way to bring a program to the front via script?
I'm using XFCE-4.8
I was wondering if there are any commandline tools that display the currently selected window?
If there is any commandline tool that can change the currently selected window?
I think I can use a virtual keyboard to switch between windows but I'd have no way of letting my script know when the desired window is on top.
I have a windows vm running in virtualbox that when it is minimised I'd like it to come to front and go fullscreen when someone clicks on its start icon. I have the start icon pointing to a script that currently can just start it.
I'd like to modify the script to see if it is running and bring it front and center and make it fullscreen.
Maybe with wmctrl.
I don't think xfce have something like that. But there is tools to get windows status and emulate keystroke :
- wmctrl : let you maximize, minimize, etc ... windows
- xdotool : lets you programatically (or manually) simulate keyboard [...]
With those two tool and a little of scripting, you will find your way ;-)
Xfce is NOT Xubuntu. Bugs in Xubuntu don't mean that Xfce is buggy ...
