wmctrl now in Easy Dunfell

October 21, 2020 — BarryK

Forum member "banned" mentioned that the 'wmctrl' utility is in Easy Buster, not in Easy Dunfell.

I have compiled it in OE, and it will be in the next release of EasyOS Dunfell-series.

wmctrl homepage:

Version 1.07 and I got a couple of patches from Debian.

I thought back, why was it included in the Buster-series? In 2016 I was working on a GUI for the CLI VLC media player, and this is to be found in /usr/local/SimpleVP. I had forgotten all about it ...I am sometimes surprised to find stuff that I did years ago, that I have no or little recollection of.

Anyway, 'wmctrl' is used in /usr/local/SimpleVP/simplevp, and is mentioned in /usr/local/SimpleVP/docs/simplevp.htm
