Window IDs are given out by the X server. The window manager doesn't get a say. Window IDs encode the client that the window belongs to in the upper 12 bits. The lower 12 bits are assigned sequentially at first, but if an intermediate number becomes free, it can be reused. So comparing window IDs does not give a reliable indication of which window was ...

My guess is that they are like PIDs, allocated in ascending order, except when they are not: PIDs wrap around. Let us assume (for now) that they only go up. What would happen on a system that is running for a very long time? Id will get too big, or ID size must be allowed to grow, 32bit, 64bit, 128bit … If they had to go up only then they could run out, ...

I think perhaps avoiding Alt+Tab is a good idea. Cinnamon has hot corners - I have my corners set to present my windows as a grid of icons (Show All Windows) which is like 'Scale Windows' in Compiz, enabling me to direcly click the window I want next. For a keyboard cowboy (as you prefer ALT+TAB I guess this is you...) I'd recommend CTRL+ALT+UP and ...

VirtualBox automatically captures keyboard input to give a smoother experience. So when you press alt + tab it shifts to VirtualBox and then the next alt + tab will happen within the VM. Here is your solution (Source): VirtualBox has a checkbox called "Auto Capture Keyboard" (> File > Preferences > Input). Turn it off. Now you will have to click inside ...

Regarding the font size, in lxterminal you could set the default font to the size you want, although this would apply to all terminals. If you were using gnome-terminal you could set up a profile with the desired font size and pass it in using the flag --window-with-profile, but I don't see any related options in lxterminal. If you don't want this to be ...

Yes, it is possible in some environments.  Stack Exchange does not do "list"-type Q&As.  If you ask about a specific environment, you may get a specific answer.

I found that only a handful of applications, including Double Commander, does show up on the non-primary left screen, on which mouse cursor is not. That would suggest an error in those applications, rather than a problem with window manager settings. I will contact such developers.

Well, you asked if that is possible, then yes, it is, just sadly not in Cinnamon (as far as I know). But there is a KDE widget like that for KDE4. If you don't want to switch to KDE, there is still an option: a drop down terminal. I'd prefer Tilda, which is very lightweight, beautiful and customizable. You can easily install it with sudo apt-get install ...

Zombie thread, I found this question before I found the answer though, so here goes: There are a few bug reports with patches for oxygen, but the quick fix for your average user is as follows: you can specify that oxygen only allows window moving via title-bar drag by running "oxygen-settings" and changing the "Windows' drag mode" in the "General" ...

I've been long using a miniscript I named lonew for this. It's meant to be short for "lastof or new". lastof is another script of mine, which attempts to find a visible window that matches a given command a was accessed the most recently. Both of the scripts are below: (they might use some refactoring but they get the job done) lonew: #!/bin/bash ...

Perhaps this is something along the lines of what you are looking for. I have just used sleep, but you can use a dialog such as yad or zenity, and change the loop so that it keeps cycling, or whatever you need. You can then add a hot-key as needed . It requires that you prime the script with the application's startup command, and also the application's ...
