View Full Version : [xfce] programs open in background

December 17th, 2008, 01:19 PM

i'm using kubuntu + xfce (+compiz if this should be of interest) for a while now, and one thing keeps annyoing me. when i open programs, most of the time they start in background, hidden by other windows.

it seems like this is only affecting gtk based programs, it happens for e.g. xfterm4, but wont happen for e.g. kate.

does anyone know how to fix this?

i cant change xfce's window manager settings since im using compiz. compiz' place windows plugin is set to "centered".
