Re: wnck_screen_get_windows() returns empty window list

Thanks, Elijah and Havoc!

I'll document the corrected version of the Python code here for the benefit of anyone Googling around for this in the future:


    import wnck
    screen = wnck.screen_get_default()
    windows = screen.get_windows()
    print 'window list:', windows


    window list: [<wnck.Window object (WnckWindow at 0xb7ba5644, ...]


I agree with Havoc's point about X apps being mostly asynchronous. In this particular case, though, I really am writing a non-interactive "fire once then exit" sort of script, so wnck_screen_force_update() was exactly what I needed. Thank you!
