Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 253740
When I start new windows the title bar is being placed under top panel
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:13 EST
Description of problem:
If I start any application, the apps are starting under the panel, meaning if I
want to move or close them, I need to hide the top pannel. If I turn off compiz
the behaviour works properly.
There was a problem with the plugin responsible for placing windows not getting
loaded. It should be fixed in rawhide, but you may have to issue a
gconftool-2 --unset /apps/compiz/general/allscreens/options/active_plugins
after upgrading to reset the plugin list.
Is this still an issue? First of all, even if the title bar is hidden by
the top panel, you can drag the window around by placing the mouse cursor
inside it, holding the 'alt' key pressed, clicking the left mouse button
and moving the mouse.
Concerning the issue you report, check with gconf-editor that the 'place'
plugin is present and enabled, otherwise add it to the plugin list.
Do not forget to close this bug upon success.
