Description Preston Brown 2002-07-17 23:09:12 EDT
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 15:35:30 EDT
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 11:09:09 EDT
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 17:39:48 EST
There's a _NET_WM_STATE_ABOVE now that could be used.
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2004-05-26 14:35:58 EDT
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 06:44:47 EST
Is it possible to call gtk_window_set_keep_above() on window created by

That should work, yep.
