I’d like to find out what desk number is currently active from a shell script or perl script. I naively thought I could use:
FvwmCommand 'Echo $[desk.n]'
But that doesn’t work… It seems that the Echo output goes to the standard error of the Fvwm process; It does not come back to show up on the output of the FvwmCommand.
In the end, what I want is a perl script that will allow me to type:
And it will figure out what desk I’m on, set the title of that desk to “blah”, and update a config file where I’ve saved the titles of all my desktops so that I can restore them if needed.
I can see how to set the name of the current desk, with:
FvwmCommand 'DesktopName $[desk.n] blah'
But then I don’t know what desk number it is… so I can’t associate the name with the desk number in the originating script.
