I use a multi-screen setup (i.e. multiple X screens, not Xinerama etc). It would be very useful if xfwm could provide a window shortcut for changing the keyboard focus between screens.
This could work just like when a user changes workspace, except without the need to redraw all windows.
I have been using the following script as a work-around:
if [ -z "$1" ]
echo "usage: $0 <screen>"
desktop=`DISPLAY=$display wmctrl -d | grep '^[0-9] *\*' | cut -c1`
last_desktop=`DISPLAY=$display wmctrl -d | tail -n 1 | cut -c1`
DISPLAY=$display wmctrl -s 0
DISPLAY=$display wmctrl -s $last_desktop
DISPLAY=$display wmctrl -s $desktop
Unfortunately it has to redraw three workspaces in order to ensure that the focus changes.
