appfinder always run on the same $DISPLAY


Description Yves-Alexis Perez editbugs 2013-07-08 07:48:28 CEST

a Debian user reported an issue with appfinder. He's using a setup where he has two $DISPLAY handled by the same Xserver (thus two xfwm4, afaict).

In his situation, when he xfrun4/xfce4-appfinder, they always appear on the same DISPLAY, since it's usually a dbus call to the already running process.

Same situation exists with xfce4-terminal (bug #10133).

Patch to make appfinder service open windows on the correct X display
Comment 2 Steve Dodier-Lazaro editbugs 2015-02-28 16:04:42 CET
The patch is interesting to have, but does not apply because appfinder was rewritten and its GDBus code is now in a separate file. Porting is not 100% trivial since we now have a GDBus object with a different internal structure. Given the gains to be had and the need for this patch to be tested, it should be post-poned to 4.12.1 or 4.14.
