Re: [Sawfish] Lowered window retaining focus (version 1.5.3)

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I can confirm that this is the case with Sawfish 1.9.99 (compiled
from git head), focus mode set to "enter-only". Though the limiting
factor is the click, everything works as expected as long as I'm only
using keyboard commands.

So I'd say that this is a bug in Sawfish somewhere, some quirk with
handling the click event. I can very well imagine that there is a
problem with said click event and the order in which further events
appear (or not appear).

Yes, there are packages for Debian, see the mails from Chris a few days
