Thread: ALT+TAB for xfce?

  1. #1

    Default ALT+TAB for xfce?

    I am looking for a solution for switching between applications (similar to ALT+TAB in Wndows).

    I am running XBMC/Kodi "Media Center" (http://kodi.tv/ - the earlier verson XBMC 13 is available in OpenSuSe repo) in OpenSuse 12.3 with xfce desktop. XBMC/Kodi occupies the full desktop when running - and even hides the xfce panel. It has no minimize option as far as I can see. So I need some way to access and launch other applications, while XBMC/Kodi is running. I may need access to a chat client or whatever, for instance.


    I realize that I may very well be asking a question here that is so basic that it may be close to stupid!

    ALT+F2 closes X session and a new console based session opens. If it matters I am running SuSE in Virtualbox.

    It may matter, because here (xfce) alt-f2 gets a prompt to start an
    application by name, and alt-tab switches to another, already opened,
    application.

    ctrl-alt-f2 _switches_ to a text session, doesn't close the graphical
    session. You can return to the graphical session by typing ctrl-alt-f7.

    Either that mediacenter is interfering and remapping keys, or VB is.
