Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1282933
mutter positions windows differently under wayland
Last modified: 2016-06-22 22:40:01 EDT
Description of problem:
Pure guess in terms of component here, but under wayland, when new windows are opened, they are not positioned in the same way on the desktop as they would be under x11.
Under x11, the window manager appears to be calculating how many windows would fit and then puts the first such windows into the "optimal" position on the top left. For instance, an empty workspace where Gnome terminal is started will get that window in upper left position in a way that would fit maximum number of terminals, but with top and left margin adjusted appropriately. Under wayland, the window is simply positioned in the upper left corner with no margins.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run Gnome under wayland instead of x11.
Different window positioning.
Should be the same?
Eventually, the mouse cursor started playing up under wayland and gnome-shell crashed once, so I would not be able to use it for my session, but this problem is also worth reporting.
fix for this was merged upstream (99c0b82b15fb8)

I would be great if it could be backported to F-23. Seems like a one-liner.
