View Full Version : [ubuntu] wmctrl after upgrade to Maverick

October 24th, 2010, 04:13 PM

On Lucid Lynx I used to have a shortcut command for switching from one desktop to another via SSH (while logged as root).

DISPLAY=":0.0" wmctrl -s 0
DISPLAY=":0.0" wmctrl -s 1
After upgrade to Maverick this no longer works. I get:

# DISPLAY=":0.0" wmctrl -s 1
No protocol specified
Cannot open display.
If I run this command as user (which is logged in gnome - dont know is it important) command returns nothing, but it doesnt switch the desktops.

Please help ;(
