X Persistent Remote Applications (xpra) is "screen for X". It lets you run applications remotely (like ordinary X or VNC), but unlike ordinary X, these applications are "persistent" if you lose your connection, or even if you want to switch to another computer. Also unlike VNC, they are ordinary applications on your desktop managed by your window manager, not trapped in a box.

The wmctrl program is a command line tool to interact with an EWMH/NetWM-compatible X Window Manager. It provides command line access to almost all the features defined in the EWMH specification. It's possible to, for example, obtain information about the window manager, get a detailed list of desktops and managed windows, switch and resize desktops, change the number of desktops, make windows full-screen, always-above, or sticky, and activate, close, move, resize, maximize, and minimize them. The command line access makes it easy to automate these tasks and execute them from any application that is able to run a command in response to some event.
