iswitchwin lets you easily switch between windows on your workspaces by typing (part of) the caption of the desired window.
iswitchwin has been inspired by iswitch-window.jl originally written by Topi Paavolafor Sawfish window manager. iswitchwin uses libwnck to control your window manager and has been primarily written for Metacity and Gnome environment.
It should work with any EWHM compatibile window manager.
Assuming you have decent Linux distribution with the following dependencies,
the compilation should be a matter of plain
$ sudo make install
At the moment the following libraries (and their headers) are required:
In Debian and Ubuntu these two dependencies are available via
# apt-get install libglade2-dev libwnck-dev
First of all make iswitchwin accessible under a hotkey. The setup depends on your particular window manager. you can use the following commands to setup iswitchwin to be run on F12 keystroke under metacity.
$ gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/global_keybindings/run_command_1
--type string F12
$ gconftool-2 --set /apps/metacity/keybinding_commands/command_1
--type string iswitchwin
This example assumes you are not using custom metacity commands, if you happen to do so, modify the example above to suit your needs.
When you start iswitchwin (either by a hotkey as indicated above, or simply by running the iswitchwin command) the list of all windows on all workspaces appears. You can use the arrow keys or mouse to choose the desired window and doubleclick or enter to select it.
You can also start typing the window title to search for a particular window.
