Do you use the "Show Desktop" action in the panel?


How to trigger this action through DCOP is one of the most often asked DCOP related questions on and some of the user mailinglists.

This is the solution I usually post then:

ACTION=$(dcop kicker qt objects | grep ShowDesktop | head -n 1 | sed "s#(# #g" | awk '{ print $1; }')
dcop kicker $ACTION toggle

Not very pretty ;-)

But most oft the time I use Win+D (why not use the Win button, if it's there (there is nothing to loose *g*)).

1. It takes up to much room.
2. I use Win + D

I just don't use desktop (icons turned off).

I was a very happy camper when discovered the Desktop Access Button. I use it quite a bit.
