Commandline window control
« on: August 25, 2010, 09:35:22 PM »
Has anyone 'tinkered' with wmctrl   commandline windows-manager-controller ?.
I found it via Google at   http://sweb.cz/tripie/utils/wmctrl/
Can this be used with TC ?

I'm converting a few old WinBatch scripts to Linux... and of course, the very first one contains WindowsList, WinRestore, and WinMinimize .   It appears that wmctrl -l is the closest thing to WindowsList, etc, etc. 

But before I venture off to fight the windmills, I wanna hear from Don Quixote ! ;)
Comments are welcomed.

If you use an EWMH window manager, it should work. The default flwm does not support that spec.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
