Description of problem:
When I have a window maximized and want to close the window, I would like to do
so by simply throwing the cursor to the top right-hand corner of the screen and
clicking. As it is, I have to aim for the "X" to close the window. Throwing my
mouse to the top right-hand corner only allows me to roll-up the window (and
only if I double-click), as is the case if I double-click anywhere on the title bar.
This is less of a problem on Ximian Gnome because the default setup includes a
top Gnome panel, which prevents the close button from being in the top
right-hand corner. However, Red Hat Gnome does not use the top Gnome panel by
default, meaning that the described functionality would be useful for Red Hat.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open any application and maximize it.
2. Throw mouse to the farthest top right-hand corner of the screen.
3. Click as if to close the application.
Actual Results: Nothing. If I doubleclick, the window only rolls up.
Expected Results: The window ought to close.
This is a theme thing afaik.
Yeah, this is the fitz-law complaint about the new metacity theme. Garrett, you
get do decide what to do about this.
There is no theme that allows for this, not even classic Bluecurve (although it
did appear to do so, it did not).
The clickable button size for the latest Bluecurve is just a pixel smaller in
each direction than the previous one -- the visible button size is two pixels
smaller, though -- but it is more apparent which button is which.
Then i'll close this bug.
