I have managed to get everything up and running now, including my NVIDIA card with tv-out on my FreeBSD 5.1. THANKS FOLKS.
Now come the fun part, I have managed to, in .xinitrc have a specific program running when I run startx. That's lovely. Now I would like to start and close additional programs, aswell as maximize, bring to front and back etc. BUT FROM OUTSIDE THE X ENVIRONMENT. Why? You ask. Let me tell you the story of my life :-) [BACKGROUND] I have a freeBSD running as a file, web and servcice server. It is located in a closet and there's no such thing as keyboard or monitor attached to it. It is however connected (since a few days back) to a TV-set. In the same room as the TV is also a small device called SLIMP3 located. (www.slimp3.com) along other thing this device sends all IR-signals flooding the room to the server. At the server I can do whatever I want with the signal. So I have created an ImageViewer application written in JAVA. It's controlled by different HTML-requests (http://server/ail?next, http://server/ail?prev etc) and those requests comes from the service that serves the SLIMP3 device. All above is still in alpha stage but it's working great so far. [END BACKGROUND] Now to my problems: I would like to start/stop different programs (such as the java-program mentioned above). I would also like to have many programs running, but only see one at a time (bring to front, maximize). I understand this is certainly not a yes/no question, but if someone can hint me on a window manager that's accessible from outside X, or some other remote controlled software that might be of interest I would be glad. Finally, I will ofcourse post all sources as soon as I have commented them, and, perhaps, made them a bit more general than they are today, please feel free to contact me for further details. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
