    Cool [SOLVED] How to return focus to Tilda wo/ mouse?


    I am sure there are many more users of Tilda now.

    My question: is it possible (and how) to create keyboard shortcut/binding that would give window-focus back to Tilda terminal?

    Currently, it is necessary to LMB-click inside Tilda (or at least drag mouse-cursor over Tilda) to resume typing.

    Most desktop managers (GUI's) have a hot key that will switch the focus from window to window. What it is depends upon the GUI, and is configurable to your preference. On my Ubuntu laptop where I am writing this, the Gnome window manager uses alt-tab to switch focus.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Rubberman, are you saying that it is not possible to create keyboard shortcut to give window-focus?

    I found something on stackoverflow *, but didn't try it. Presuming it works, can
    you also do it (only) with Compiz (yes, I've searched ... a lot)?

    Not at all. I just said that the default key binding to do that is alt-tab. You should be able to change that (the key binding) in your desktop preferences.
