Description Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2003-11-10 08:40:55 EST
Description of problem:
When the "Send window to the workspace left/right/up/down" function
is used, it changes the location of the window relative to the
workspace origin. This is a bug in the workspace-grid.jl script.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use sawfish-ui to bind (for example) ctrl-alt-right to the
"send window to the workspace right" function
2. Press ctrl-alt-right over some window to move it to the right
Actual results: window is sent to the next workspace, however it does
not stay in the same position relatively to the workspace origin.

Expected results:
The window is sent to the workspace to the right, but it should stay
on the same position relatively to the workspace origin.

Additional info:
Using diff -u to the workspace-grid.jl which I had on RedHat 9 i
figured out that the following patch helps:

Comment 1 Jan "Yenya" Kasprzak 2003-11-19 12:20:55 EST
Well, this is in fact a bug in libwnck (see the bug id #109624 as well).
Installing the patched libwnck (patch at
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/showattachment.cgi?attach_id=21124) fixed
the problem for me as well.

I have built fixed RPMs of libwnck -- you can grab the source RPM
and i386 binary RPMs at
(be sure to check the GPG signature against GPG key ID 1024R/D3498839).

Component changed from sawfish to libwnck. Fedora people, please
incorporate this to the next release and close the bug.
