Hi,
I am a newby of xfce.
I wonder if is possible send message in the same way MWM does by means of f.send_msg.
Thanks in advance for the help.

I don't know how Motif works so stating what your looking to achieve would be helpful rather than digging into the whole MWM environment.

Re: Send message like MWM f.send_msg

Something like this?

#!/bin/bash

PROCESS="mousepad"
COUNT=0

while true
do

   if [ "$(ps -e | grep $(xdotool getwindowpid $(xdotool getwindowfocus)) | grep -v grep | awk '{print $4}')" == "$PROCESS" ];
   then
	COUNT=$((COUNT+1))
	echo $COUNT
   fi

   sleep 1

done

...currently coded to count the approximate seconds that a particular process is in focus. You can change this to do anything you want.
