Use Fink's xorg package to bring X11 windows forward
Authored by: wr0ngway on Sep 08, '05 03:33:56PM
Thanks for the tip!

I installed xorg from fink unstable (see below) and command-tab does indeed bring the X11 app to the foreground now. Still doesn't allow me to cycle between mutliple X11 apps using command-tab though, is there a way to have each X11 app show up as a separate item in the command-tab list?

Setup fink unstable as documented here (takes a looooong time as it has to buildx org from sources):

Use Fink's xorg package to bring X11 windows forward

The X11 server (responsible for drawing on the screen) sees each window as a separate client thread, and so it has no idea which "windows" belong to an "application". Therefore, there can't be any coordinated window locating or mapping, except with the cooperation of the client app itself.

Unless they snuck in something on me when I wasn't looking.
