Description Michal Krenek (Mikos) 2006-04-13 05:40:23 UTC
If I press ALT+F2, launchbar appears, but doesn't get focus. I must click on it,
which it is really annoying.

It has worked in the past, I think this has something to do with these changes
(copied from ChangeLog file):

2006-04-10  Dan Winship  <danw@novell.com>

        * src/window.c (focusWindowOnMap): new function to decide whether
        or not to focus a newly-mapped window. In addition to the old
        checks, this also checks that _NET_WM_USER_TIME isn't 0, to allow
        a window to explicitly request to not get focus.

        * src/event.c (handleEvent): use focusWindowOnMap when processing

        * plugins/rotate.c (rotateHandleEvent): fix _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW
        handling so this doesn't interfere with focusable panel applets.

Well, does reverting these changes solve your problem?
Comment 2 Dan Winship 2006-04-15 01:18:09 UTC
This is fixed in the latest CVS:

        * src/screen.c (panelAction): take a timestamp and pass that to
        the panel rather than using CurrentTime
