I don't imagine this is built into the system, but is it possible to do it without too much hassle?
Say I open a specific program with a hotkey, and when I press that hotkey again, the program window is brought to the front.
I want to do this on Ubuntu 9.04.
Maybe with D-Bus? Any experts?
Update: Here's what I ended up with in case it's of help to somebody:
#!/bin/bash if [ -f "/tmp/myterm.pid" ]; then WID=`cat /tmp/myterm.pid` xdotool windowactivate $WID if [ "$?" != "0" ]; then WID="" fi else WID=`xdotool search --title "UNIQUE TITLE" | head -1` fi if [ "$WID" == "" ]; then /usr/bin/gnome-terminal --window-with-profile=MYPROFILE "$@" WID=`xdotool search --title "UNIQUE TITLE" | head -1` echo $WID > /tmp/myterm.pid else xdotool windowactivate $WID fi
Surely it can be simplified, but I'm no
bash wiz. Also, for my example to work, I created a custom profile in Terminal that applies a unique title to the window so it can be found later. The possibilities are endless!
