Description lars@bistromatic.de 2004-10-12 19:54:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
I'm using a nvidia card with two connected screens (TwinView).
So one gnome-workspace consists of two screens.
The Window List applet shows only windows on the same screen.
It should show every window on the hole workspace
(or every open window on all workspaces).

FWIW the Window Selector applet lists every window on both screens.
The Window List applet works as expected in fedora core 2 using
the same nvidia-driver and the same xorg.conf.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to screens using an nvidia card with TwinView
2. Open a gnome session
3. Open one window on every screen


Actual Results:  Window List applet shows only the window on the same

Expected Results:  Should show both windows.

Yeah - the window list was modified to only show windows on the
current monitor since that makes more sense on the default setup where
you have a window list on each monitor.

See upstream bug report where we're planning on showing all windows in
the case where theres only a single window list:
