I came across the following problem: Pidgin conversation windows which get created when someone IMs, grabs the focus, and I dont want it to. I presume the same problem will occur for firefox popups too… I tried GrabFocusTransientOff but to no avail. I dont know what transient windows are defined to be, but I thought they mean windows that get created by apps and stuff? Anyway what is the actual workaround to this problem?
It is now better. It doesnt change focus for every message. But it still brings a new chat window to focus, when someone else IMs for the first time… Is there any other flag that I should turn off/on ?
I also have another question regarding WindowList behavior.
Key Tab A M WindowList NoDeskNum NoGeometry NoCurrentDeskTitle CurrentAtEnd
This ensures that the mouse doesn’t jump to the new window, and instead remains where I left it before pressing Alt-tab. But I dont want the mouse to move at all when Alt-tab is being pressed, unless I move it explicitly. Is there a way to do this, ie to dissociate the mouse from the (windowlist) menu?
