Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 129380
Focus Issue with new windows
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Description of problem:
metacity upgrade in rawhide introduced a few annoying focus related
behaviors with new windows. The below behavior is different than FC1
1) ALT-F2 pops up in front, but does not have focus automatically.
2) Click a link that launches a new browser window. Window does not
pop in front, and it does not have focus.
3) Clicking on another program in the task manager more than once no
longer minimizes it again.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4) Click on a different program in the task bar, and while it may
pop-up, it wont have focus.
Actually, the reference for issue 4 is
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=118372 (past comment 100 or
so; it really should have been a different bug--oops). It the
_NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW isn't sent with a timestamp problem; it's both a
libwnck and metacity bug.
As for point 3, I saw that today but I thought I had only seen it with
my local patches.
Warren: What focus mode are you using (click, sloppy, focus), what
version of libwnck, and what other non-default options do you have set
for metacity (autoraise, etc.) if any? 100% reproducible?
Oops, forgot to add myself to cc.
Extra notes: Issue 1 is just part of the already-mentioned 'panel
isn't setting timestamps right' (failure to use startup-notification?)
I'm assuming issue 2 is only true so long as the browser is already
running, correct? If not, there's an extra bug somewhere (due to not
using startup notification), and we need to know what app you're
clicking in to launch the browser.
But I'm most interested in issue 3; I wasn't aware of that one, so if
you could answer the above questions...
Sorry for the spam. One more question though, in regards to issue 3:
When you clicked on the tasklist for the window the first time, was
the window correctly focused? If not, maybe you just independently
