View Full Version : [SOLVED] xfce - new windows are opened behind exinting ones

October 5th, 2009, 03:06 PM
I've been using Karmic since Alpha 6, and everything works fine, but there is one annoying thing: every new window I create (doesn't matter which app) will open _behind_ all other open windows, and not in front of them as it used to happen. So if I am working on some Latex file and call "view pdf", evince will open behind Kile or Texmaker, and so on.

Anyone has seen this?

Go to: Xfce4 menu -> Settings -> Window Manager -> Focus tab and make sure that the Automatically give focus to newly created windows checkbox is selected
