    How to force Focus Change (Alt+Tab) in Games?

    Hi folks,

    Is there any way of getting Alt+Tab (or another hotkey) to work in fullscreen-games? There are even some windowed games which won't let me switch back to my Desktop.
    I know few MS-Windows Games with similiar behavior, that is to say Quake3 and Doom3. But I found a tool which lets you minimize Doom3 with a simple F11-Keystroke.

    I'm looking for such a tool for Linux. Ctrl+Alt+Fx is not an option here.
    I would deeply appreciate your help since I'm setting up a public computer and don't want those peeps claiming "Linux is weaker than Windows", mmkay?

    ALT+TAB works for me. What window manager are you using?

    Using KDE no Fullscreen-App will minimize

    I'm using KDE with the Kwin-WM.
    Let's use the game "Formido" for example, it doesn't even support Alt+Return as in switching to windowed mode.
    (I like that game)

    Please try it yourself: Use "formido -f" for fullscreen-mode, then try to hit Alt+Tab.
