Description

Kind of an old software but still does the job.
My use case is with Kodi extension to switch between Kodi and Steam.

First try as a package here.

This hasn't been updated in over a decade (more so the fact the changelog indicates 1.08 but 1.07 is provided). Not really comfortable with landing it.

Yep I know, but never found 1.08 even in up to date distro (Fedora 24 and arch)
It's up to you.

I could be misunderstanding what you're trying to accomplish here, but couldn't you just have Kodi and Steam opened in separate workspaces and then switch between them using 'ctrl'+'alt'+'left'/'right'?

It's in a HTPC/mediacenter setup so no keyboard. Controller or remote app.
There are many other options:

  • I could launch steam and then Kodi from Steam.
  • Install wmctrl manually and then I'm up to go.

This is a no blocker, it was just to copy my old setup.

Ah, okay. ^^

Marking Wontfix because of concerns regarding the long-term viability of this tool and the obvious lack of maintenance.
