Description Jens Petersen 2009-05-18 02:41:17 UTC
Description of problem:
Currently ibus-setup (and other IME setups) can be lowered and lose focus.
If user then tries to select ibus-setup again from applet then "nothing"
happens since it is already running.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run ibus-setup
2. bring another window in front
3. try to start ibus-setup from ibus -> Preferences
  
Actual results:
nothing happens

Expected results:
ibus-expect would get focus

Additional info:
Probably simple workaround is just to have ibus-setup to grab desktop, so users have to close it, before continuing.  If that is not too aggressive?

Comment 1 Peng Huang 2009-05-25 08:19:48 UTC
I think grab desktop is too aggressive.
I'd like raise the window. but it has some limitation, ibus->Preferences can not raise the ibus setup dialog executed by user self, it will bring another one.
It has been implemented in upstream. I will build it for fedora soon.
