Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1275321
Apps do not register mouse events with xwayland on the primary screen on a multi-display setup
Last modified: 2015-10-30 08:30:17 EDT
Description of problem:
When I click on an item on, for example, a webpage link under firefox or a link in chrome, or Xterm, nothings happens. Hover events are not propagated to the app either. It seems that the mouse events are ignored by the apps as long as their window is on the primary screen. If I move firefox or chrome on the secondary screen, mouse events (click, hover, ... ) are registered properly.
Terminal, nautilus and native wayland apps are working properly. Xterm does not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have a two display setup
2. Start firefox or Xterm and move it on differents screens
3. Move the on the different displays and notice how they don't react to mouse events on one of them
Nothing happens on any mouse event on one screen
Mouse events should not depend on the display they're aiming at.
Running f23 upgraded from fc22.
Looks like the bug disappeared, even though I tried many times before submitting... It might happen when one register a NEW secondary screen during the session though.
Fixed with http://cgit.freedesktop.org/xorg/xserver/commit/?id=216bdbc maybe?
Definitely looks like it's the same bug. Thanks.
