Usage information

command
The command to run
arguments
Optional arguments for the command

Description

This is a wrapper script for launching commands via Window Switch. If the Window Switch client is running (see winswitch_applet ) it will be used to start the command line specified, which will make it network transparent.

If the client is not available, or if it declines to start the command line given (keyboard modifiers can be used to toggle this behaviour) the command line (command and optional arguments) will be used directly.

Example

winswitch_command_wrapper xterm

Will start an xterm, either directly or via Window Switch, depending on the client configuration and availability.

You can use this wrapper to modify your desktop shortcuts, the commands will still function, even when Window Switch is not running.
