[SOLVED] Openbox - Ubuntu Server - XBMC and Skype - managing application focus

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi all, Hopefully a quick question with regards to focus when running XBMC on Ubuntu Server with openbox. My HTPC now boots, auto-login, openbox starts, and 2 applications (Skype and XBMC) start on separate desktops. I give XBMC focus, but both apps are running. The intention is to be able, when in XBMC, to flick between the desktops with Alt-Tab... I may add a web browser at some point. It may be an XBMC application question really, but the issue then is that once XBMC has focus, I cannot seem to send a command to openbox in order to switch between the desktops. Does anyone know w (Hardware)
