Description Pierre Ossman cendio 2012-06-19 15:04:43 CEST
We've gotten a request on issue 13389 to add the ability to launch local commands (a voip client in that case). We've also suggested doing bug 4344 at the same time, to get a nice user interface for this.
Comment 1 Pierre Ossman cendio 2012-06-26 14:36:57 CEST
Peter had an idea about this:

First press:

 - Drop fullscreen

 - Launch the specified process when the button is first pushed, and keep track of the PID.

Subsequent press:

 - Check if PID is still running. If not, behave like first press

 - Drop fullscreen

 - Restack so other application hopefully becomes visible
Comment 2 Pierre Ossman cendio 2012-06-26 14:37:51 CEST
If we do this as a general feature, we should probably control it via adding special configuration entries, one for each command.
Comment 3 Pierre Ossman cendio 2012-06-26 14:39:36 CEST
FLTK lacks restacking functionality, so it would be a bit of a hack to do this.
Comment 4 Pierre Ossman cendio 2022-10-25 13:15:17 CEST
This is very odd functionality that doesn't really fit in with how ThinLinc normally is used. We also haven't had any requests like this since the original one.
