I'm looking for some help with a computing issue. I'm running Openbox 3.5.2 on Raspbian/Pi3 and a single monitor. I want to have one program focused and in fullscreen while the keyboard outputs to another unfocused and not visible program. The focused program is Epiphany web browser. The un-focused program is an ssh terminal. Thanks for any thoughts/suggestions.
Thanks Giles, I now realize I miss-understood the terminology of 'focus'. I want to focus the terminal but only have the web browser viable.
A basic method (Openbox 3.5.2, Raspbian, Pi3). Edit rc.xml to include a window focus key-binding, e.g. keybind key="W-x"
<action name="PreviousWindow"> <finalactions> <action name="Lower"/> <action name="FocusToBottom"/> <action name="Focus"/> </finalactions> </action>
The key-binding works with one web browser window & one terminal window.
1: Focus (Alt-Tab) the terminal.
2: Toggle key-binding key (W-x) to focus the terminal window below the browser window.
