I use wmctrl with a little script that I bind to a key combination which
either brings the app to the foreground or starts it if it is not running:



# Switch to a screen or do something


if ! wmctrl -a $1; then $2; fi

I save this as switchto and then:

switchto "Mozilla Firefox" "firefox"

Perhaps wmctrl could be used in the same way for emacs?
