Scan ps(1) output.  Then perform appropriate action based on that.

I use fvwm-devel (port), so my rest of the reply is based on that.
And i think that fvwm could be of help.  The Big Idea is...

  - Spawn FvwmCommand once from fvwm.
  - Afterwords you can use FvwmCommand to fire fvwm related commands
    from a shell script or console.

...For details, see...

...FVWM is highly configurable, so don't let the fvwm(1) man page
overwhelm you.  If you encounter problems w/ fvwm, consult the
mailing lists...
