Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 143604
wnck-applet doesn't list windows on other Xinerama screens
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:57 EST
Description of problem:
The GNOME window list applet, which I assume is wnck-applet, doesn't
work properly with Xinerama displays.
I have a dual-head system. Whichever Xinerama screen the GNOME panel
is displaying on, wnck-applet fails to display any windows from the
other Xinerama screen.
If I move the GNOME panel from one screen to the other, the list of
windows showing up in wnck-applet's list changes so that only the
windows on the new screen appear.
The criterion for whether a window is "on" a particular screen seems
to be whether the midpoint of the window is on that screen or not.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a multihead system.
2. Run GNOME. Create windows on each screen.
3. Look at wnck-applet. Notice that only windows on one screen
populate the window list.
I'd expect all windows to show up.
