Description Preston Brown 2002-07-18 03:09:12 UTC
ssh-add-gnome, while it grabs the keyboard, often gets overlayed by other
windows if it is initiated as part of a session startup.  This leads to confusion.

The window should always stay on top.

Marking the head of the priority queue with priority high

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-09-12 19:35:30 UTC
I don't see this with Psyche.  The window stays on top as it should.  I remember
seeing in earlier builds, but it appears to be fixed now.  Please reopen if you
are still seeing this on your machine.

Comment 3 Preston Brown 2002-10-02 15:09:09 UTC
no, it isn't fixed.  It is still easily possible to make the ssh-askpass window
disappear beneath another window.

Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-12 22:39:48 UTC
There's a _NET_WM_STATE_ABOVE now that could be used.

Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2004-05-26 18:35:58 UTC
Using GTK 2.4 this is now pretty easy; change the window to 
gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL) (rather than GTK_WINDOW_POPUP), 
then call gtk_window_set_keep_above() to get it on top.

Comment 6 Tomas Mraz 2005-02-07 11:44:47 UTC
Is it possible to call gtk_window_set_keep_above() on window created by

Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2005-02-08 04:35:58 UTC
That should work, yep.
