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.
I have used several window managers, but what you're asking is (like you said) not a yes-or-no question. Enlightenment is one of the most powerful WMs around, and it also has a shell-like tool for doing kind of the stuff you're asking for, called eesh. I haven't really tried doing anything remotely with it though. Try it and see what you think. You can also join some E-list if you want more information. See the homepage http://www.enlightenment.org/pages/main.html
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.
Please do! And include me on the list, this sounds awesome! =o) Good luck! /Jalle
