Doing a “Show Desktop” using Python’s libwnck bindings

Quick tip: you can do a Show Desktop from a script (from Python, in this case), with: python -c "import gtk,wnck,gobject; s=wnck.screen_get_default(); s.toggle_showing_desktop(True); gobject.idle_add(gtk.main_quit); gtk.main()"

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
