When "Opacity of inactive windows" is lower than max (default),
clicking on the titlebar of an inactive window locks the mouse
cursor to "move". Switching the windows with Alt+Tab releases
the mouse and everything is OK then.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Lower the "Opacity of inactive windows" setting in "Window Manager Tweaks"->Compositor
2.Click the titlebar of an inactive window
The clicked window gets the focus, but the mouse cursor locks to "move" shape
Just to switch the focus to the clicked window
I cannot reproduce that (and I fail to understand how this could be).
What kind of hw do you have? Intel multicore maybe? If so, what kernel version do you run?
Did you try with the version from current SVN trunk? You can grab an up-to-date copy from here:
No, actually I have K6-2, Radeon VE/7000 and the kernel is 2.6.19.
I thought that 4.4RC2 is the last. Never mind, I'll try the SVN version.
I tried to compile not the whole environment, just xfwm (126.96.36.199) from the link you gave me, but no luck, it's all the same.
May be my hardware is just too old.
I've commited a change that might help fixing this issue. Can you try xfwm4 revision 24291 or later?
You can grab an up-to-date snapshot here:
Yes, it's all right now, thank you very much!
Indeed, xfwm is the only compositing window manager that works for me.
Metacity is super slow and compiz blocks my computer.
Thank you for doing this!
Great, glad it works.
