Here's a .pet for wmctrl 1.07, built from the lucid .deb file. Tested on Lupu 5.2.5 (caveat: a derivative called RexBang).

wmctrl is a UNIX/Linux command line tool to interact with an EWMH/NetWM compatible X Window Manager.

The tool provides command line access to almost all the features defined in the EWMH specification. It can be used, for example, to get information about the window manager, to get a detailed list of desktops and managed windows, to switch and resize desktops, to make windows full-screen, always-above or sticky, and to activate, close, move, resize, maximize and minimize them.

The command line access to these window management functions makes it easy to automate and execute them from any application that is able to run a command in response to an event.

Please note that wmctrl only works with window managers that implement the EWMH specification. The tool is known to work - either fully or partially - with the following window managers:

blackbox >= 0.70
icewm
kwin (the default WM for KDE)
metacity (the default WM for GNOME)
openbox >= 3
sawfish
fvwm >= 2.5
waimea
pekwm
enlightenment >= 0.16.6
xfce >= 4
fluxbox >= 0.9.6
matchbox
window maker >= 0.91

wmctrl in general

One of those tools that sometimes gets into an offering (like musher0's wmx wm package) and you overlook it until it comes in handy. For example, I was trying to get a (nicer) graphical pager in ede wm, but most only displayed on one desktop (kind of useless for anything but observation) and the appdir that was sticky was fairly clunky. How to make a window that's usually undecorated sticky (on all desks)? Load something like fbpanel's pager, do a "wmctrl -l" to get some info, then if the desktop info hasn't got a "-1" in that column for "panel" .. "wmctrl -r panel -b toggle,sticky" and voila.

It's not always that simple, but still it can be useful if you've banged your head on most of the options you can think of and the control eludes your grasp when it seems like there should be a way of accomplishing this or that tweak you might want.

Yep, afterstep has its own way for sure Razz

Very cool `f00!

I've found all sorts of uses for it- not major accomplishments, but little things. I've used it to supplement Openbox's already excellent facilities for controlling application windows, implemenedt a "quake-terminal" type thingie, a window placing/resizing setup ala unity's Super-Keypad, replacing windows with a copy in the same size & position, a script to display a different background image on each virtual desktop... all sorts of fun little stuff.

It is a very cool little utility, and goes very well with xprop & xwininfo.

Hi All,
I do implementation of this wmctrl to the jwm window manager. I use shortcut Ctrl + Alt + Arrow to move window to up, left, down, and right side of screen. I called it stickyjwm. Very Happy Here is the link: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=825303#825303

Edit:
I know from this thread:

Thanks, recobayu, for your useful script. It's not only for jwm, it can help "upgrade"
any older or more limited window manager (such as aewm, wmx2, echinus, etc.).

BFN.

This is stickyjwm2. So many thanks to you all, thanks to mochimoppel.
the stickyjwm1 is from here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=825303#825303
Now, this stickyjwm2 is better (i think.. Wink).
1. It can automatically detect our tray, bottom or top.
2. It will not remove your jwmrc-personal or your wmctrl
3. We can use winkey + arrow to control that
4. It only can walk on the new jwm (that support winkey nicely)
stickyjwm2.pet
Description  Just install this pet, and we can enjoy our new toy. like Cinnamon or wdz 10, i think.. :)

This is MUCH better! Wink
Also a clever way to include the shortcuts in the user's jwmrc-personal

Now you should really delete links to stickyjwm1. Makes me nervous to see this thing still around Laughing
What I didn't understand: What means "can automatically detect our tray, bottom or top"? It may detect them, but it doesn't care about them. What is stickyjwm2 supposed to do when it detects trays?

It is automatically set our window position. So that the window hopely never behind the tray again.
Eventhough our tray is autohide..
Very Happy

It is always behind my 2 trays, so doesn't work for me, but probably works for users with uncustomized tray settings.
