When opening an application from the Gnome Panel Area (e.g. gaim, rhythmbox,
firestarter), the window should be opened in the current workspace.
Currently the following happens:
rhythmbox, firestarter: application is opened in the workspace where the
application was last placed
gaim: window is opened up in the workspace where the application was last
placed _and_ that XFWM switches to that workspace.
I have looked at
and there does not seem to be speced behaviour.
I would suggest that the application should be either opened in the current
workspace (or screen number) or (?equivalently?) have the Stocky flag set to
true. If this is not the case then users have to click on the notification
area, select the correct work space, and then return to the original
workspace....this is a bit of a pain
What version of xfce4?
Please try this version and report:
That works a lot better! Thanks.
1) there is a typo in client.c line 1235 (illegal semi colon...I coped :-))
2) With firestarter, the window always opens up in the bottom right corner and
then is (quickly) moved. This results in an annoying flash in the bottom right
hand corner. gaim and rhythmbox seem to be okay, so I wonder if this is a
problem with firestarter?
Sorry, I forget to add I was using 4.0.2 (in debian/unstable)
Sounds like this can be closed.
No complaints in two months.
