Gnome Tasklist Focus Problem while Restoring Windows
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:53 EDT
Description of Problem:
When you try to restore a minimized window by single clicking on its icon
on the Gnome Tasklist applet, the window restores but not get the focus.
You should click again to focus it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a window (e.g. mozilla)
3.Single click on its icon on the tasklist applet
Window restores but not get focus.
Window should get focus.
You may say this is not a bug but a feature :) I am really surprised about
the inconsistencies of tasklist and window manager behaviour between 7.0,
7.1 and the upcoming 7.2 versions.
No, not a feature. It should be focusing the window.
Probably not happening in latest packages, but needs testing.
Apparently sawfish has a config option to not focus unminimized windows, and
we have the default setting wrong for that.
