I want to be able to have a keyboard short-cut to either start or bring to the front a program. (sqldeveloper if it matters)
I know how to run it, that leaves:
1) how do I find out if a program is already running?
2) how do I bring the program the other top of other open windows?
~~ edit ~~
Thanks for the responses so far. When I run either of those commands to get the list of running processes, I get the following:
doneill 3492 1 0 Nov16 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sh /usr/local/bin/sqldeveloper doneill 3493 3492 0 Nov16 ? 00:00:00 /bin/bash /opt/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper.sh doneill 3495 3493 0 Nov16 ? 00:00:00 bash sqldeveloper doneill 3552 3495 1 Nov16 ? 00:25:07 /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-126.96.36.199/bin/java -Xmx640M -Xms128M -Xverify:none -Doracle.ide.util.AddinPolicyUtils.OVERRIDE_FLAG=true -Dsun.java2d.ddoffscreen=false -Dwindows.shell.font.languages= -XX:MaxPermSize=128M -Dide.AssertTracingDisabled=true -Doracle.ide.util.AddinPolicyUtils.OVERRIDE_FLAG=true -Djava.util.logging.config.file=logging.conf -Dsqldev.debug=false -Dide.conf="/opt/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper/bin/sqldeveloper.conf" -Dide.startingcwd="/opt/sqldeveloper/sqldeveloper/bin" -classpath ../../ide/lib/ide-boot.jar oracle.ide.boot.Launcher
I do launch it via the .sh script. It is a java based program. Which of those are the one I'd be interested in? I tried using the
xdotool to raise it, I haven't been successful yet, although I don't have time tonight to dig into the man pages.
If I run
xdotool search Orac ('Oracle SQL Developer' is the start to the title of the window), it returns a bunch of numbers. Do one of these represent what I'm interested in?
