Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 128303
Can't "click to raise" anywhere in window
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:03 EST
Description of problem:
The older and new functionality in GNOME isn't persent in RHEL3.
Where is "click to raise"... where I can click anywhere in the window
that I want to raise?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL3 with all updates
For a possible patch see:
U3 or possibly an errata in the post-U3 queue has a hack for this.
Havoc... is this now scheduled for U4?
Is there any word on if/when this will be fixed? It would be nice
for me and a bunch of my users who've asked me about this behavior change.
There's a setting /apps/metacity/rhel3_extensions/raise_on_click
in Update 4.
Hm. I went and grabbed the U4 beta version of metacity and installed
it. The option was there, but it didn't seem to work. The update
didn't seem to want any additional dependancies. Did I miss something
related I was supposed to have updated as well?
/apps/metacity/rhel3_extensions/raise_on_click doesn't have any
effects when using Focus Follows Mouse.
Oh, I see - this bug is the reverse problem, i.e. wanting to raise
when it doesn't. raise_on_click was added so you could disable raise
when it did.
What's the status on this? I have the metacity packages from update4
installed, but I still can't raise windows unless I click on the
window decorations. What values are the raise_on_click and
strict_pointer_mode supposed to have in order to be able to get the
behavior I am looking for?
Also, I was initinally unable to see /apps/metacity/rhel3_workarounds
in gconf-editor because the file
/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults/apps/metacity/rhel3_workarounds was set
to 750 instead of 755. This is because up2date used my default umask
(037) instead of getting the file permissions from the rpm file
itself. This is similar to bug#143486
Sorry, I guess I posted too soon. In gconf-editor if I right-click on
both raise_on_click and strict_pointer_mode and select "unset" I am
able to get the window focus behavior that I was looking for. The
installed with my default umask of 037 should probably still be
considered a bug however.
Come on Red Hat, we your faithful customers believe in you... and have
for the past six months of this bug being open. Please dedicate the
resources this problem needs. Let's close it and be done with it!
It's already closed...
It is? I see above:
MODIFIED = supposed to be fixed
QA gets to some number of MODIFIED and changes them to FIXED
Ok... so how is the QA going for this bug?
QA doesn't move all MODIFIED bugs to FIXED, only certain bugs.
It's supposed to be fixed. If it isn't, then let us know the version and the
observed vs. expected behavior, and values of
gconftool-2 --get /apps/metacity/rhel3_workarounds/raise_on_click and
gconftool-2 --get /apps/metacity/rhel3_workarounds/strict_pointer_mode
What errata was this fixed in? What version should I be checking?
The latest for RHEL3, afaik. RHEL4 should also work.
