Is there an alternative to Skippy-xd?


Is there any other tool to "expose" all windows beside Skippy-xd? I'm finding the bug of not showing minimized windows quite annoying.

obviously the question is regarding the desktops that do not have this feature... XFCE, MATE, LXDE, etc.

Why would I need Skippy-xd (or any other) in Gnome, KDE or Cinnamon?

It's not DE independent because window pickers are called something different on each DE, hence the question.

As you wish...

Is there any alternative to Skippy-xd for MATE, XFCE or LXDE?
