Description Avi Kivity 2015-11-22 06:02:48 EST
Description of problem:

Opening a dialog in Eclipse (ctrl-F or ctrl-shift-T) does not transfer the focus to the newly opened dialog.  You have to click the window in order to be able to type into inputs.

Since I did not update my eclipse installation when upgrading to F23, it is either a gtk2 regression or a problem with gtk2/x11/wayland integration.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Eclipse
2. Type ctrl+shift+T

Actual results:
Unfocused window opens.

Expected results:
Focused window opens.

We cannot support GTK2 any longer for Eclipse; all development effort is now on GTK3 and Eclipse in Fedora 23 now uses GTK3 by default.

I wonder why your Eclipse did not get updated, did you download it from instead of installing from Fedora repositories?

The latest Eclipse update from the Fedora repositories contains a large number of patches to fix various GTK problems, please try the latest Eclipse from the Fedora repositories to see if the issue is fixed for you there.
Comment 2 Avi Kivity 2016-05-01 07:43:41 EDT
I am using binaries (mostly because I used a self-patched CDT), but:

- the problem went away (I did not even notice when)
- eclipse seems to use gtk3 now (at least it's mentioned in /proc/pid/maps)

Perhaps this got fixed when I updated to Mars.2.
