When opening a wine application in a workspace, that application appears also in all the other workspaces.
I am using Debian GNU/Linux, testing/unstable and installed 4.4RC2 with the installer.
This bug did not occur in 4.4RC1!
I'm reassigning this to the window manager. I'm not sure this isn't a problem with wine.
1) Make sure you allow Wine windows to be managed by the window manager:
Check .wine/config for something like:
; Allow the window manager to manage created windows
"Managed" = "Y"
2) You may want to update to the current SVN, I just plugged a bug with mocal dialogs and workspace switch.
3) I am not able to reproduce the problem
1) "Managed" = "Y" is set (Allow the window manager to control the windows)
3) It only happens with 4 of my 9 wine apps.
4) It is reproducible
5) it doesn't happen when "emulate a virtual desktop" is set
What's that option? "it doesn't happen when "emulate a virtual desktop" is set" It's not an xfce nor an xfwm4 option...
Did you try with the latest version from SVN as suggested in my previous comment? You can grab a snapshot from http://foo-projects.org/~olivier/preview/
Can you name the application that show that behavior? Can you do an "xprop" and an "xwininfo" on the windows that show the problem?
Ok, "emulate a virtual desktop" is for running wine apps within a "desktop" window, right?
So, best would be to try the latest SVN build and if it doesn't fix the issue, then I'll definitely need the xprop/xwininfo outputs to determine what could be "special" about those windows.
I tried the latest SVN build and the issue is now fixed! :)
That's great news, thanks. I'm resolving the bug then.
The same wine applications that did appear on all workspaces also do not disappear from
the desktop on toggle desktop show/hide ("Show Desktop" button).
That is because the window itself specify that it doesn't have a "hide" function through the MOTIF WM hints that xfwm4 also supports. Since the window is not to be hidden, it stay visible even when showing desktop.
I installed your latest xfwm4-188.8.131.52-r23815 and libxfce4mcs-184.108.40.206svn-r23824.
With this version the hide window function now works with all my wine apps!
Yes, that's rev. 23811:
