View Full Version : [gnome] All new windows open behind/underneath existing windows

January 5th, 2011, 01:31 AM
I'm running 10.10 but also had this problem on 10.4. Every time I start a new window (e.g. from the Applications menu), it opens below all of the existing windows. Obviously I would like it to open on top, and be in focus.

I have Visual Effects set to NONE (so that VNC works correctly). If I set Visual Effects to NORMAL or EXTRA, I do not have this problem (that is, the window opens on top).

I'm using an up-to-date, stock, 32-bit, Ubuntu 10.10 system with Gnome windows manager. I have an NVIDIA card, with the latest driver from NVIDIA.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I'm having this same problem. I'm using 10.04 and this only recently started. Been running 10.04 since May 2010 with no problem, strange.
