I want to find a way to switch to the windows of a running non-kde
application - ie to display its window. The same thing that happens when I
click its entry in the task bar. But I need an automatizeable method - ie a
command I can put into the key shortcut or call from another program like

yes, it does not display its window but just make the entry in the taskbar
