View Full Version : [gnome] Gnome-classic, new windows remain buried behind other window

November 14th, 2012, 10:57 AM
Hello All
This is my first question on this forum.
I have recently moved from ARCH Linux to Ubuntu 11.10:).
I switched to using Gnome-Classic and noticed strange behaviors with the windows whenever I open them.
I have setup Launchers on the Panel to launch Dolphin, Terminal and Chrome Browser.
Whenever I launch any of these I notice that they open behind the current window that is in-focus instead of coming up in front.
According to me any sane windows manager would by default bring up the new window in front and focus, I mean why would you want to open a window hidden behind all other window???

Is there any thing or configuration that I need to check as this problem is driving me nutts :confused:.

Thanks in advance :)

I'm clueless but curious :confused:

I'm setting up a bunch of machines this way:


No problem so far with the (no effects) session which uses Metacity. So it might be worthwhile to try logging into classic (no effects) to see if it's a WM problem ..... I'm guessing it might be a Compiz thing.
