Howto Create a Root-Window with Perlby stefan k (Curate)
|on May 25, 2004 at 13:20 UTC||Need Help??|
stefan k has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I've been running a transparent terminal with no borders displaying 'top' for years now and I'd like to extend the mechanism.
I know that programs like xpenguin, root-tail or root-portal found a way to detect the real root-window of the current X-Session.
For me it would be sufficient to sent the appropriate WindowManagerHint to my Sawfish-WM. I thought it should be possible with PerlGTK but I didn't find a way to do such.
I am not (yet) limited to using PerlGTK, I might as well use the QT or Tk-bindings. I'm just looking for a way to send WM-hints in perl.
