I’m a rather happy windowmaker user, but sometimes it’s good to change for a while, and I like very much what we can achieve with fvwm, it’s a very powerfull window manager, even if a bit tricky to configure.
I liked the transparency effect on some of those themes, and then I decided to create my own buttons based on this config files :
I changed the default behaviour of SloppyFocus to this :
Style * ClickToFocus
Style * TileCascadePlacement, MinOverlapPercentPlacement
Style * DecorateTransient
It’s working well, but sometimes it ends I can no longer have focus to some windows : the title bar stay as it’s unfocus, however it’s above the others. I can click on things in it, but can’t type with keyboard, the focus stay for ex. on a console. If I kill the console and stay with only one application the focus move to this application. If I start another application, the previous one loses the focus and can’t get it again. This behaviour ends until I restart the X server (x.org). Then it’s working well, until the problem occurs again at, it seems, random occasion.
Is this an identified issue ?
My machine is on debian unstable, PPC linux.
