Different window manager behaviour for gtk.Dialog vs gtk.MessageDialog
Last modified: 2011-06-29 09:35:04 EDT
The following two Python GTK programs behave differently with respect to the widow manager's 'ALT-TAB' functionality (Move between windows using a popup window, by default bound to ALT-TAB). I think, perhaps naively, that they should behave the same in this respect.
With this program the dialog box appears in the ALT-TAB window, and you can ALT-TAB to and from this dialog box:
dialog = gtk.Dialog()
With this program, the dialog box does not show up in ALT-TAB window, and you can not get to this dialog box with ALT-TAB:
dialog = gtk.MessageDialog()
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '13'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 13 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2011-06-25. Fedora 13 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
