expose and buddypop
Authored by: djhayn on Jul 08, '04 01:47:11PM

also on that same site, buddypop is excellent, for 5 euros i bought it as soon as i tried it and the developer was helpful and responsive with a problem.

sorry for posting this twice, it got tucked away in the wrong spot:

is there any way around the fact that running an applescript kills expose's show desktop?

for example i wrote an itunes script for GeekTool and it updates every 10 seconds, if i press F11 and don't do anything else when the script runs again all my windows snap back. It doesnt happen with expose's other features (F9 and F10) so I'm confused.

this is also one of my first attempts at applescript so might be my fault, anyone else have the same problem?

i have this same problem, my itunes status applescript snaps all the windows back when it updates. i thought maybe it was specific to applescript, but i can trigger other applescripts (using quickeys) while in expose's show desktop mode and the windows stay out of view as they should. so i think it must have something to do with how geektool is calling the applescript. it doesn't happen when i disable the iTunes status script. i can even force my other geektool widgets to refresh and expose works fine.

it's particularly a bummer precisely because i'm using show desktop so much more now that i'm using geektool.

(god, do you ever feel like you're just dorking out too much? : )
