Hi guys hope someone can help!
I want to activate ie "bring to front" a program from another program given that I know the PID of the program I want to activate. Just like the window list applet but without having to click on it.
I cant find anything in the man pages (my first thought was using one of the signals for kill), a c or shell script solution would be ideal (please no python or perl!). thnx in advance.

Never did get any replies but solved it by using libwnck
