Hi there,

I plan to launch an external application from a MythTV menu (in the
background by using exec &). This starts then minimized
Has anyone have any clue on how can one restore this already running
application by pressing the same MythTV button? I presume there should be
some call to the windowmanager, but my search returned no good results
(still looking around). This would be really useful for example for skype
and other "always on" applications..
Thanks and best regards,
