Looks like NetWM hint (some right thing) is broken, as Guifications appears in
right-bottom corner _on_ panel, instead being in the corner _after_ panel.
Switching ftom XInternAtom to XInternAtoms might have broken this.
I'm sorry, but I understand really nothing at all in this report. What is a
Can you rephrase or provide some screenshot?

Oh, sorry, I should have explained what Guifications is. GF is Gaim's plugin
that shows a small popup window if someone signes in, goes offline etc.
And what do you mean by "on" panel and "after" panel? Do that mean that the
applciation window shows above the panel while it used to show under the panel?
(I'm sorry, I really need to characterize the bug the best I can so I can figure
_On_ the panel is how it is on the screenshot (in the very corner of screen),
but _after_ the panel means it should be ~30px upwards (panel height) and so
avoiding being on/under the panel. Hope you understood me right this time :)
It's not the net_wm hints being broken (because that whole desktop would be
broken then). It sound like a duplicate of
Decreasing the severity to normal, because that's really nothing severe.
Yes, I guess it is really nothing major.
It can be that bug, but downgrading to xfwm RC1 resolved the problem. In all,
xfwm seems to be quite broken in RC2.
RC2 was never released, I'm not sure I understand what are you talking about.
Also, can you list precisely what else is broken, because "xfwm seems to be
quite broken in RC2" doesn't help in anything.
I ment benny's experimental RC2 installer
click-on-focus seems to broken also. It doesn't focus until you click on
titlebar, but that's another bug already
There is no such bug here.
The RC2 from Benny is *unsupported*, I do not know what you are talking about, I
do not know what version is included.
The 'RC2' in question is a CVS snapshot from 20041204 (the current .bin in
experimental/ was built today).
Again, "doesn't focus until you click on titlebar" doesn't help much...
What is your current configuration, what focus model, what is the content of
~/.config/xfce4/xfwm4/xfwm4rc (if any) ?
You really need to provide me with some useful information if you want me to be
able to help; otherwise I am not able to characterize the problem.
Also, it's better to keep one problem per report, so it would be more suitable
to open another bug report for the focus problem.
At least, the focus problem should be fixed in CVS now.
Can you please try with this version:
And while you are at it:
I did clear CVS 05.11.04 install, then used those panel and xfwm tarballs and
* Guifications popup window is still in wrong place;
* focus-on-click has gone better (gaim conversation windows seem to be working
fine, but I still can't randomly focus some windows like xchat, gaim, firefox).
looks like that we have 2 bugs in one report, too bad it happened this way
The placement problem is now fixed in CVS.
(same URL, updated package).
I need more information about the focus bug, a way to reproduce the problem
would definitely help.
I believe all the problems are fixed now. Can you try and report?
Just upgraded to
but no change. Will upgrade everything to latest CVS tomorrow and report back then.
The placement problem is fixed, I am sure of that.
In case, please update from CVS directly.
Just upgraded to CVS, no change. guifications opens in very corner and focus is
buggy. What should I report/attatch about these problems?
My xfwm conf:
(o) Click to focus ( ) Focus ....
New window focus:
[ ] Automat.....
Raise on focus:
bar is at the max (Fastest)
Raise on click:
[X] Raise window......
I have no ~/.config/xfce4/xfwm4/xfwm4rc
Interesting. Though I don't see the point of having "Raise on focus" in click to
- Can you try with deselecting the "Raise on focus" option"?
- Do you have a simple way to reproduce the probklem (something like "run A, run
B, click on A, move C, and B should be blahblah while it's not")
Ah, your setup clearly shows the problem, indeed. The change in config should
Raise on focus:
[ ] Automat....
but the problem still persists with focus. A way to reproduce the problem? Open
Xfce Settings Manager (in a clean desktop for example, but that doesn't seem to
matter) an you have it. It comes on top but does not recieve focus automatically
and neither with mouse-click in it. I haven't been able to focus it in ~20 times
in a row i tried now.
Ok *everything* should be fixed in this one:
Can you try this one?
Now i'm able to focus it by clicking in it :) Looks like clicking in every
window focuses it now.
Guifications window seems to be workinf gine also. Looks like the bug can be
Thank you very much for your effort.
Thanks for your help and patience.
