I am having issues with starting Thunar (a file manager for Xfce) via a keyboard shortcut and having it start on top of other windows.
The Thunar window always appears below the current active window, whilst of course I would want it above it. Apparently, only Thunar behaves like this, because if I start other applications -- I have tried with Gedit and GVim -- they appear on top (as expected). Thunar behaves like this even when I start it via the Gnome Panel.
Maybe the problem is that Xfce applications don't start properly under Gnome?
I know that
wmctrl allows you to raise any window, but I have no way to identify the last Thunar window and raise it because I could have other Thunar windows opened already.
