I want to minimize a window through the active corners I only see that it can be done by means of a customized command, does anyone know what it would be? I would appreciate your help.

Set the keyboard shortcut to something like super+alt+h

Then install xdotool

Then at the hot corner settings select the execute command and put in xdotool key super+alt+h

This is how I'm doing it

Edit: I found that xdotool actually has this built-in xdotool getactivewindow windowminimize is much easier then above. cheers


I used this method by installing wmctrl:

sudo apt install wmctrl

Then write the following command of the active corner:

wmctrl -k on

It worked for me...
