    Hey pal, worked brilliantly here !!! Finally I can get rid of the annoying focus bug of my windows:
    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ty/+bug/885941

    Albeit the scaling bug was fixed by a proposed update of compiz.

    I am running 64 bits.

    Only a couple of issues tough:

    - When maximizing and then restoring windows, buttons are missing, but button command is there ! Just rendering of the buttons is not there anymore. If you resize the window on the width, icons reappears.

    - When using Synaptic or any other applications that has buttons which could trigger a dynamic window resize, sometimes the entire border is not resized and remains on the original size.

    Anyway, for me, is far less annoying than the focus bug.

    BUG fixed. Not the most elegant solution ever implemented, but it works brilliant. Intercepted event from Unity of restore window (somehow is not the Emerald button) and do a refresh of the title-bar only within the code itself.

    For those who are interested in using Emerald in Unity perfectly integrated, download and replace the file main.c into the /src subfolder of the 0.9.4 version of Emerald source, then compile with the instructions at the beginning of this thread. If you have already installed it, uninstall first with:
    Code:
    cd emerald-0.9.4
    sudo make uninstall

    No worries, I get a lot of seg fault too when starting the Theme Manager. Do it from Terminal. After a while, it goes away and you can start it...

    Fixed !!! This much more elengantly fixed than the other one, albeit is not very precise as a fix, it works brilliantly and does intercept only the right combination of events (motion event without the "send_event" flag set).

    Attached is the main.c for who is interested, now Emerald is 100% perfect in Unity.

    can u plz format your post to wget the link to your fixed main c insert it into the sources compile and so forth so a patron passing by can take the block of code and 2 second copy paste? i originally setup my post to quickly duplicate my settings to a laptop so i would not have to fumble around in sources or terminal for hours.... if you setup a code block like i have formatted in the first post, ill make a section of the main.c repairs youve implemented.... (however im refusing to refix the source as i fixed it the way i did the first time lol)
