Description Michael Boisvert 2019-06-12 18:52:15 UTC
Description of problem: 

After creating a rule for an application under the settings for auto-move-windows, opening that application places it on the current workspace. Once you change to the workspace which was selected in the rule, the application will be there correctly. 


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open gnome-shell-extension-prefs.
2. Turn Auto Move Windows ON and click the settings gear.
3. Create a new rule for gnome-calculator to open in workspace 3.
4. Open calculator.

Actual results: It will open in the current workspace and be oddly greyed out. 

Expected results: Calculator opens in workspace 3. 

Additional info: This issue occurs during an X11 or Wayland session, classic or not.

This sounds like https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/mutter/issues/572, i.e. a compositor bug rather than an extension issue.

Comment 2 Michael Boisvert 2019-06-17 18:43:23 UTC
Yes, same issue.

Comment 6 Michael Boisvert 2020-06-25 18:35:46 UTC
Tested with multiple rules on different components, mutter-3.32.2-44.el8 seems to have fixed the issue I initially reported. I noticed no regressions or other issues while testing this extension as well.
