When I enable "Focus follows mouse", and go to an empty desktop, and start a new (for instance)
Terminal with a shortcut I've made, and my mouse is in another area than where the windows pops up,
I am unable to ALT-Tab to it.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to empty desktop, enable "focus follows mouse", find some way to start a program (Terminal for
instance) so that the mouse is not pointing to the window when it starts.
2. Start Terminal
3. Try to ALT-Tab to it is not possible
Could not ALT-Tab to window
Expected to be able to ALT-Tab to window
not xfdesktop - olivier, could you look at this?
This is the normal behaviour. Alt+Tab is for switching between windows, if you
have only one single window, there is no other windows to switch to/from.
I bet you disabled "Automatically give focus to newly created windows" so I see
no bug here.
Created attachment 151
Patch to allow alt+tab when only one single window is present.
Resolving - Fix in CVS both branches.
Uh, that would make sense then, as both XFCE and fluxbox had this behaviour. But I am glad you
would fix it though!
Have not tested it yet, but at it seems rather trivial to fix, I'll change it to "VERIFIED".
Thanks for the quick reply and ditto action :-]
