New terminal opens 'behind' other application windows
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:47 EST
Description of problem:
When I open another terminal window, it appears behind windows that
are currently open on my desktop. The only exception seems to be
another terminal window (new appears in front of old)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Gnome Terminal 2.7.3 (about box contents)
Has appeared this way for about a week.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open something (big) on your desktop (mozilla, system monitor,...)
2. Gnome menu->System Tools->Terminal
3. Look for the Terminal window
As noted above
A 'new' application window should appear 'in front' of othre
System is up to date as of now
yum -y --exclude=\*debug-info\* --exclude=iii\* install \*
OK, the terminal window is fixed - a new one will open at the front (top?)
However, a new Mozilla window will open 'behind' an open terminal window.
Open Gnome Terminal window (it will open on top of Mozilla)
Open another Mozilla window - by clicking on the dragon icon (it will
open in front of the first Mozilla window, but 'Behind' the Gnome
Any new window should come to the front (be on top).
If the new window belongs to an application which is already open, but
is not the 'front' application, this application should become the
front applcation before the new window opens.
System is up to date again
Well, things seem to be working better.
If I open a terminal from the task bar, the new window appears on top.
If I open a new browser window from the task bar, the new window
appears on top.
Terminal windows and browser windows interleave. The whole terminal
application NOT is made the 'front' application with a new window, but
maybe someone likes the 'interleaving' behavior better than a 'group'
I can live with that behavior, as long as the new window whatever is
Works for me
