comment Can I automatically send a particular application's window to the lowest z-position, when it loses focus?
I meant that in trying to understand your scripts, I was issuing the same commands that it does, from the command line. The xdotool command didn't work as advertised from the command line, so there was no reason to expect that it would in the script either.

comment Can I automatically send a particular application's window to the lowest z-position, when it loses focus?
In experimenting with xdotool windowraise, I find that it doesn't actually raise any windows. Rather, if I try to raise a particular application's window, the corresponding launch icon shakes for a moment, and the small arrow next to the icon changes from white to blue. Further xdotool invocations do nothing until I click the icon, then I get the shaking behavior again. Is there some window manager configuration I need to set in order for the commands I issue with xdotool to be obeyed?

Sure, that's fine.

Still no window manager after git-cloning unity-revamp and running unity-reset. Furthermore, that program does not terminate, and when I interrupt it with control-C, Unity dies even harder than before, in that I can no longer even send keyboard input to any open window, and must reboot.

unity --version tells me unity 6.12.0.

Ubuntu 12.10. 64-bit, if it matters. I don't know what version of Unity; how would I find out? I'm just using a stock Ubuntu install with all packages up-to-date.
