Description Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-06-16 23:45:38 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040518 Firefox/0.8 Description of problem: Hi. I tried to DND something from a background maximized window into a foreground window, and the source window went into foreground, hiding the target window. The point of spatial nautilus is to make DND easy. Therefore this is a bug. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): nautilus-2.6.0-5 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. See Summary Additional info:

30+ days, still not fixed and no reply.
Comment 2 Ivan Gyurdiev 2004-08-16 00:52:20 EDT
Actually I guess DND from any window brings it into foreground which is even worse. 50+ days, no reply.

This is a window manager issue. Nautilus is not what is moving the window to the front. This is not a simple thing to solve, as X doesn't currently have a way that lets you fix it in a good way.

Assigning to metacity, as there might be some way to solve this in the window manager. hp? This is a common problem, is there any way to solve it?

See: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112308 http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=128134 http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=76672 This is a fairly hard issue, it won't be fixed overnight. It needs to happen at gnome.org though, not here.
